Look no further than Ekayars on Venkatanarayana Road. Has the reputation built over 45-50 years. You can spot lot of exotics after 1000 pm. The entry has been complicated recently due to metro work.

That's where I've experienced short filling first hand. Have not visited ever since.

12-13 years back, my dad too caught them red handed. Better to avoid that place.

I regularly fill from the Indian Oil pump in Adyar, opposite Guru Mess. Have been going there for more than 15 years and have nothing to complain.

That being said, I find Bharat Petroleum petrol to be better than Indian Oil's: the difference in pick-up and mileage is quite evident.

Re: Best Fuel Stations / Petrol Pumps In Chennai

Funny, I live right down the road from that IOC and I try my hardest not to fill at it. This thread has a lot of issues with them (but maybe a thing of the past since they became a COCO). Short filling, distracting you with products to sell or stupid questions and the meter jumps, not the best quality fuel etc.

The KPN bunk has good fuel, and if you tell them "full tank, auto cut off" there is very little they can do. They don't distract you etc either, that bunk has very high traffic so they are focused on filling and moving you out.
