If you are refering to the HP bunk at the corner / near signal, then my suggestion is to keep a good watch when they fill. It's like any other bunk, IMO. Dont get distracted if they try to distract you.
Thanks for the reply Condor. Any idea how they try to cheat, what should I be on the look out for? As in, do they play with the meter, or is it something they do the nozzle lever... any tips would be helpful. I just brought my car here to bangy.
I have been filling diesel at Nagpals (BPCL) on Residency Road. Had a good experience so far. No hanky panky, diversion etc. On most occasions, the dispenser was was handled by women, so a bit assured that there will be no cheating. They would punch in the amount, switch on the pump and move on. My other favourite for Diesel is the BPCL COCO before Thomas/ Fatima bakery on Hosur road, Shoolay Circle.
I filled there once and I see a slight increase in my FE. But I stay far away from this place.
Has any one used the BPCL near Avalahalli ( KR Puram - Hoskote Road on the right side) ? If yes I would like to know the feedback ?
This bunk is the one which comes on the left as you proceed from the Wipro HQ on Sarjapur road, towards Sarjapur. This is just after the Sunny Brooks gated community, new Mantri project and beside the new DSR group project.
I've been using the services of this bunk for about 2 years now, for both my Scorpio as well as petrol Ikon. Just be careful for genuine mistakes when paying with the credit card, but otherwise have had no issues with fuel quality or quantity.
Good experience here as well. I have filled both the Spark (petrol) and the Figo (diesel) from here without issues. Its also less crowded and the attendants are quick to get things done. And +1 for the dedicated attendant for filling air. I tip him well to make sure he doesn't steal my valve caps.
Went to the BP petrol pump at Ejipura today. Asked them to fill up for 500, and he reset the counter and showed me zero. I told him to go ahead -- that's when he asked whether I would like to fill for 750, I asked him why, and he is like "that's what everyone does". During this time the other guy started filling with counter set at 100. I told him it was for 500. He said OK, and started filling.. and stopped at 405. I asked him why he stopped, and he says he already filled for 100 earlier, and that I don't need ot pay him for the extra 5 rupees as that was his fault
I asked him to print the bill for the earlier 100. He said he can't do that now. So I told him that I would only pay for what the bill shows. He filled for 500 without a word.

Is there any petrol bunk near Marathalli area which operates 24 X 7? I need to fill up my car at around midnight today; can't go to bunk before 11 PM as there is a puja in my home which I need to attend. My friend is arriving at Bangalore at 01-00 AM; I have to pick him up.
I suppose it is a bit too late for you, but posting this here in the hope that it will help someone else on a future date. The HP pump at Marathahalli (between the bridge and market bus stops) was open and serving fuel at 12:30 AM this morning when I was returning home after a movie at Innovative.
The following BHPian Thanks binand for this useful post:
I saw 2 new petrol bunks recently opened. One at Agara, where the road bifurcates (one towards silk board and other towards koramangala), on the RHS towards koramangala.
Another bunk opened on ORR near Mahadevpura total on LHS towards KR Puram from Marathalli (just after crossing the railway underpass).
Has anyone used these bunks?
Can anyone suggest a good petrol pump in HSR layout? I usually fill form Soubhagya at the ORR, but read mixed reviews about it here. Is there any COCO pump in HSR layout or nearby towards MG road/koramangala?
Advaith petrol bunk near USHA apartments in Jayanagar 4th Block was good and reliable. Since a week now it claims petrol is out of stock! On checking, was told that the dealership is closed This was situated near and was convenient to resident from this area. Wonder what is the real story behind it!
Hope it opens soon.
