Re: Trusted petrol pumps in Mumbai

Big Indian Oil petrol pump has been operational for couple of months while going from Powai to Seepz flyover.

Location - 19.129038620793377, 72.88214008732946

Anyone has any experience about this petrol pump?

I've used them twice. Once on a night drive, to tank up, and it was a blissful experience, with the night chill thanks to Aarey making it a dreamy experience. Easy in, easy out, no complaints.

I returned once during the day, and the experience was not as good. They were trying to upsell me on 2-3 things (coolant saar?) for the short time I was there. It took a firm no to let them know to look elsewhere, but as I turned off to fill air at their tyre-wala, one unwitting uncle was taking a demo of the polish or whatever and looking reasonably interested. I thought of warning him, but let it go, and haven't returned since.

Caveat emptor.

This section of JVLR just before you get on the SEEPZ flyover was/is an adda for solicitation of 'customers' by eunchs and prostitutes. They had the audacity to even walk up to a BEST bus stop and harass passangers there. I avoid stopping in this section at any cost.

There is a nice BP pump just a kilometre ahead next to kamal amrohi studio, i frequently use this one.

Now that is something I did not know!

Yeah, I know of this one, but given I've switched the car to a diet of XP95 (or equivalent), I stopped going to this pump. It's a good one though, for sure.
