Exclamation Petrol Pumps in Ooty

Hi Guys,
I am planning to drive to ooty this month (during christmas). I'll be going Bangalore - Mysore - Bandipur - Mudumalai - Ooty. I'll be filling tank in Bangalore before leaving.
But while returning back can anyone advice on Good Petrol Pumps in Ooty.

I'll be going by my swift vxi with my wife and 5 yr old kid. I'll be staying in Mudumalai for a night in Jungle Hut and then proceed to Ooty the next day.

Any other advices regarding the trips are also welcome.

Thanks
Anand

Thank you beejay. When you say Gudalur Highway. Does it come between Mudumalai and Ooty? Is the pump reliable? I mean i saw lots of threads which talks about adulterated petrol issues because of it?

You can fill up once you reach ooty, as you enter ooty there is a bharat petroleum two tiered bunk, I have always topped up there and have had no issues so far.

Hi Lukeskywalker,
Can you provide some more details on where the bunk is? I have never been to ooty before. I am planning to go via mudumalai and take the 36 hair pin bend route.

+1 to that. Have been using that bunk regularly for the last 4/5 years every time I travel to Ooty and seems to be a decent place.

Some landmarks, road name where the bunk is there would help. I'll be going via mudumalai and plan to take that 36 HP bend road.

Two Tier BP bunk in OOTY is the best. Good customer care and smiling staff. They have a good superstore inside the bunk also with nice ooty chocolate.

This is located along your route and quite difficult to miss. It is also not far from Ooty Railway Station/Bus Stand etc. if you decide to fill up after you have landed up in Ooty and not en-route. You will not miss it, since it is a two-tiered pump.

I have always got my car topped up at the Indian Oil bunk in the Ooty City with Xtra Premium. It is the only Indianoil Bunk. I have tried BP and my car did not return a FE.

I filled up my Tata Indigo SX when I was in OOty. I was there in winter. I would recommend to fill up the tank with the fuel available in Ooty especially in winter and Diesel in particular as it may be blended with antifreeze.

How is the Pony Needles bunk? I did take fuel there and one of my buddies who grew up there before he moved out said that it used to be a pretty well known one back then. Although it looked a little cramped to me I don't think I had any issues with the fuel quality.

I had tried this bunk couple of years back and found no issues with fuel quality.
