Folks, Shell has stock - plenty of it and they also claim to never run out of it.
Some queues today at OMR in Bangalore, had to wait for 10 minutes in the queue before I tanked up (routine, not panic) at 39.95 / litre of diesel.

Every other bunk that I saw on my usual route of C V Raman Nagar to Hebbal via the ORR was closed.

Shell have their own vehicles and they don't fell any effect with such kind of strike.

Anyday you will get Petrol & Diesel at Shell you will pay a bit more but you will get quality and quantity fuel.

Just Chill guys do not worry about the fuel...

Today i felt traffic was very low compared to other days not sure if it was because of the fuel crisis?

btw people i believe fuel is available in HP? so it makes sense to go to the pump as early as possible??

also can we have a list of pumps where the petrol might be available??

There was a huge jam in front of most HP Bunks yesterday, no idea about the status today... apart from cars/buses people were standing is queue with empty bottles in the hands to top up. Saw some of the Bunk staff getting roughed up by frustrated customers.

Went to the Shell outlet at Hosur road. It took me about 30 mins to get my car filled. But the quantity was rationed. I was able to fill only for 500 rs worth of diesel.

HP staff is not participating in the strike therefore HP will have no problems related to stocks but higher loads as other bunks dry up eventually.

In Chennai every bunk including HP seems to be closed. Shell are the only ones operating but have some 2 kilometer long queues

Guys.Ghatkopar is out of stock at every nook and corner.Ghatkopar West has one pump which is operating and has a kilometer long line of trucks wanting to refuell and i thought they were on strike :|.They should be denied any diesel at all until they start working.Whats the point of them filling up and just idling around ? :|

Anywhere in this side of town anyone has an idea of diesel being available? have a trip to mahabaleshwar on sunday and desperately need a full tank.Even if some pump on the highway is open i dont mind.

Filled up my tank at 3 AM today while returning from work at the BP outlet in Mogappair . There were a few trucks and diesel autos that were turned away as there was no diesel available. I considered myself fortunate though !

According to our Home Minister P. Chidambram, HPCL is functioning normally.
