I use a 1998 safari diesel and have always filled fuel from the HP outlet on the Aurobindo Marg just after the Indian Oil Building near Yusuf sarai, Delhi. And I always use Turbijet. My vehicle's performance and FE have been exemplary..11.5 kmpl with 100% Ac on highways.

Default HP Turbojet

Sir, presently am in Mumbai after having driven over 2.5 days from Gurgaon. I am not a lightfooter. Average speed has been 100 Kmph. Have hit 120 on many stretches especially the Express Highway between Jaipur-Kishegarh, Ahmedabad & Baroda etc.. The Udaipur - Ahmedabad road is excellant, meandering through hills and I was doing 80-90 as it had lot of curves & gradient..:-)

I have recently started fuelling up with Speed 97 (93 Octane) and the difference is amazing. The acceleration is so so smooth and the pick-up is great. Engine is smoother and more silent / responsive. FE seems better but not sure though as its only been the second fill up. I definately recommend it.

Switched to Power from XtraPremium after reading this thread - just to check it out. Frankly I haven't felt any difference ; neither is there any perceptible change in kmpl figures.
But I'll keep using it for a while since it's 40paise cheaper

As far as possible fuel should be filled from the same station always after identifying a good pump; preferably a company owned joint. This largely eliminated the adulteration & calibration issues.

I always fill Turbojet in my brutes from the same pump (HP pump on the Aurobindo Marg, New Delhi, just before Hauz Khas area starts) and have been doing for the last several years without any issues. And YES, turbojet works the best for diesels...
