"Suggest you try out the Kaveri fuel station too, opposite Lalbagh West Gate. Not sure of the exact location. Please check it out"
Not a good idea. It was good. They were good but now they cheat you thru their teeth!

"JP Nagar - Outer ring road - HP Bunk. It is between Bannerghatta Road and 24th Main 15 Crss signal"
Yes - I found the fueling here gave a good FE, almost similar to the FE that I used to get from Reliance.

I usually fill up from the HP bunk opposite Woody's on the 100 ft ring road. They are professional and I am quite assured of the quality.
I also use the IOC bunk on the Bannerghatta road near the Sagar apollo hospital. They are also quite good.

Had some bad experience with the BP petrol bunk opp IBM on the Bannerghatta road. I had complained about them in the BP website and they did change the contract for the bunk.

Beware of this bunk , there are few new fillers who trick out like start from 50 rs and fill till 200rs and ask 200rs . I caught 2 of them red handed and gave full blast untill their hands started trembling with fear of complaining to owner/manager . This is can be with any bunk . I fill here all the time .

guess what, a 1st gen pulsar has a full tank capacity of 18 ltrs. 1 ltr unusable reserve.so theoritically one can fill only 17 ltrs of fuel. but,most bunks con by filling 19-20 ltrs i na tank that can fill only 17 ltrs!!!! anybody else face this problem?

After reading useful reviews, I decide to fill from IOC@Banasankari Bus Stand or HP@100 Feet Ring Road. Hope these two will give good results. However we should be very care with the filling guys.

I have been using Annapurna Bunk (IOC) on RV road (its between RV teacher's college and Vijaya Main) for ages now and havent faced a single problem. There has been no incident on either quantity or quality of fuel.

Yes, I too faced this with the Advaitha bunk on BTM road. The fillers (particularly on the last pump next to Ananda Bhavan) keep chattering away, to divert your attention I guess. But the one JP Nagar ring road I found quite reliable.

Well I'm damn sure about this 1st, 2nd gen(DTSi w/o alloys) pulsars have tank capacity of 20 Liters even though company says 18L tank capacity.
I have filled my bike's tank many a times.
3rd gen pulsars came with 15L tank capacity.
Heck even my Zen could easily take 37L of fuel even though company specifies 35L tank capacity.
All these tank full I have tried in many petrol pumps.

JP Nagar - Outer ring road - HP Bunk. It is between Bannerghatta Road and 24th Main 15 Crss signal

BP Petrol Bunk on Bannerghatta road opp. to Subramanya arcade
jp nagar hp bunk is no good. my dicor gives me no more than 8.4kmpl and smokes more than usual when using the fuel from this bunk. both quality and quantity is suspect here. my fusion gives me 7.2kmpl from fuel from this bunk but 8.6 from advaitha in btm.

I'm totally confused now.Don't know which petrol bunk to approach.I wanted something reliable in the Bannerghatta road/BTM area.

And about the BP in front of Subramanya Arcade( i thought i'll start using this bunk) here is what another T-BHPian has experienced..

How I wish that Shell will open an outlet on Bannerghatta Road.
