Yes even I was expecting the same. However, the lockdown happened and there was really no news from Shell about the switch while the other OMCs were featured on many media houses to claim that they have converted all their refineries and dispensing units to BS6 standards. Hence the question. Other companies as you say had already switched early 2020 or even before.

I drive Honda Jazz V (MT) i-DTEC. My daily drive is around 100 km. Few weeks back I used to fill normal (unleaded) diesel from Reliance fuel bunk. Now a days I fill it at Shell fuel bunk. My observation is, the mileage is approximately 1 to 2 kmpl more with Shell diesel as compared to Reliance. There is no other difference noticed with engine clutter etc.

I would like to know if it is ok to mix the left over BS4 diesel and BS6 diesel? Or it's advisable to almost empty it before refuelling with BS6?

I still have half a tank of diesel left in my car which I had filled two months ago.

Could Fellow Bhpians please guide on How to verify the Genuine ness of Shell Oils?

I had bought Shell Rimula R4 15W40 Engine Oil 5Ltr Can from a local shop. The date of Mfr/Pkg is 01/2020. The Sticker on back of Can looks old in comparison to the look of Can.

^^ Local shops keep moving cans around and hence the labels get a little scuffy.

However, you can check the seal to verify if it looks like any other Shell lube can.

Additionally, you could write in to their customer care quoting the batch number.

There is some recent method of scanning the product code under the label but I am not aware of that since I don't buy Shell oils anymore.

I filled Shell V Power petrol for car and bike last week @ Rs 98.50 per litre. Which means Shell normal petrol will be around Rs 92 per litre.

But I notice the price normal PSU petrol is around Rs 83 per litre only. Normally Shell fuel will be costlier by Rs 2-3 per litre but now the gap seems to be more than Rs 8 per litre. Why such big difference now? How long has it been like this? Any idea?

I don't see much customers in Shell pumps recently and am wondering if I am getting fresh fuel or old stock.

The price of regular shell unleaded is Rs. 90 in Bangalore compared to Rs. 85 for psu pumps. It doesn’t make much sense to go for it at this range, especially if you have a trusted psu pump already near your location.

Yes, I filled up last week and it definitely was priced steeply at around 89.5 Rs. compared to their competitors. But there was a healthy queue of two wheelers and cars to fill up still.

Current prices are 90.60 and 99.65 for regular and V-Power respectively from the link you shared. On net, V-Power is priced 13-14 Rs. above regular fuel from competitors and not sure if it's worth it anymore.

My car has rarely seen any fuel other than Shell for the last 2 years but the price is getting too high for me relative to its benefits.

Cross posting from "Best fuel pumps in Chennai" thread:
I have been a regular at Shell for so many years, filling V Power petrol. But recently I find it costs just a few paise below Rs 100 per litre. Their regular petrol also costs Rs 90+ per litre. So I have been mulling a shift to a good PSU pump for a while. My wife's office has opened after lock down and I am making two trips every day to drop and pick her up, which is 52 km a day. Mostly by bike in the morning and car in the evening.

As a prelude I filled ten litres of Speed 93 @ Rs 87.42 per litre for my bike at the BP Pump near Radisson hotel on GST Road. My credit card has a fee waiver at Shell but not here, so it will add one rupee more per litre, but still the fuel will cost RS 12 per litre less than V Power. If things are satisfactory for the next week, I will fill the car also here.

Shell fuels used to cost about Rs 2 - 3 more than PSU fuels usually, I don't understand the reason for this much difference now. Even Shell normal costs 6-7 rupees more than normal PSU fuel.

Is Shell dispensing BS6 fuel now through their pumps across the country?
I couldn't find any confirmation as such hence asking here?
I am not sure about other PSU companies either.
I am from Pune, So any particular info from this city would be helpful.
TIA.
