  1. I AGREE WITH THE COMMENTS FROM THE CUSTOMERS IN THE PETROL BUNKS
    PEOPLE SHOULD BE CAREFUL WHILE PETROL IS BEING POURED INTO THE TANK’
    PEPOLE SHOULD NOTE DOWN THE READING ON THE PANEL BEFORE HE FILLS UP THE TANK. AS COMEENTED PEOLLE SHOULD ASK FOR THE bILL FOR THE QUANTITTY HE HAS FILLED PEOPLE SHOULD BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN THEY GO TO PETOLL STATION WHEN THERE IS HEAVY RUSH

  2. I agree with Hari Prasad Nadig. I had many such experiences in many of Indian Oil outlets. Now its been more than 3-4 years, I have completely stopped buying petrol form these outlets and always go to Shell. They are professional and I never had such incidents. Also one would see at least 2-3 km difference in millage and these days their price per liter is also in par with other PSU outlets.

  3. It is always “BUYER BEWARE” system. If you are not attentive, you become the victim. I use a petro card, get the slip and enter the reading (Reserve in 2 wheeler) and quantum filled on it to check the mileage, which also helps me to decide as to which bunk dispenses correct quantum of fuel.

    Certain modus adopted just seems to be accidental, but is done intentionally and they get through cheating in most of the cases, who are believing the persons at the bunk.

  4. The dealers also hand in hand with the delivery boys, again they keep goons to take care if any toward incident happens from customer side.The oil corporations and Weight and Measeurment department has to take intiative to safe guard the interest of consumers

  5. Shell Petrol is probably much safer bet in Bangalore. The fuel from Shell lives up to the promises and they have better practices w.r.t filling and grabbing attention of the customer to the prior reading.

  6. This is a tricky one. When we ask for ‘full tank’, you get an odd number of liters, say 27. And that has to be multiplied by another odd number, say 79.44 per liter. Since it is difficult to multiply 27×79.44 in our heads, we tend to accept whatever number they give in the bill..as I was driving out, I kept feeling there was something odd about the bill, so I stopped just outside the pump and did the multiplication on paper. And they had charged me a few hundred rupees extra! It was quietly returned as soon as I claimed it.
