Default The Best Fuel

Since there are lots of fuel brands right now, which one have u found to be the best available? I've been regularly using Xtra Mile so far, but now switched to TurboJet.

Have i left out any other fuel thats available??

I use XtraPremium because I trust the Indian Oil pump where I fill up. The Bharat Petroleum outlet in my neighbourhood sells adulterated fuel.

I'd like to try Speed 97 but very few pumps seem to have it, which makes it a problem if I was to go out of town.

I prefer the 91 octane you get at IOC. Use it in my RD 350 and she run's pretty sweet

I voted for Shell as I run my esteem on Shell Super petrol.
Shell(atleast in Bangalore) has set a standard and has changed the entire experience for a person going to a petrol pump for a refill. They greet you with a Namaskar, always give you a bill and the Quality and Quantity are very good.

Is this the same in other cities as well, I really hope it is and other oil companies should follow suit.

I agree with Santhosh! The way Shell services customers is amazing! As soon as you enter the Bunk, a guide will direct you to the most appropriate Fuel dispenser, a attendent will then come & wish you with a smile & ask your requirement. If you are paying by card, he will call a concerned person to process the card. Then most of the times, he will spray & clean your windshield! Sometimes, he may omit this, but you can gently ask him. Then as usual, you can avail a complimentary air check! Overall, a pleasant experience!

No offense, but doesn't this happen at all petrol pumps? Just about every large pump in Mumbai gives you the same experience (the smile and namaskar bit may vary, depending on the attendant's mood).

I fill my car regularly in a IOC pump on way to work because he is the only one I can trust. Found most of the BP pumps here were not good, so much for "Pure for Sure"...

About the service part, thought I dont get a Namaskar and the works, I always get my car tyre pressure checked freely and my widhshield cleaned if it is dusty ( without askiig for it)... so that makes no difference to me.

Dont know what shell sells , but they are so good at it that a few of us dont mind driving half way to the town however inconvinient it is just to tank up at shell .. v1p3r travels like 10 kms just to fill up at shell , i travel 7 kms just to tank up at shell .. To sum it all we have got the best mileage using shell unleaded .. Which stands at 15 kms/ltr in city and 17.3 kms/ltr on the highway (shocking isnt it ??) ..
