New Scam Alert
I stay on Hosur Road beyond Silk Board. I have noticed that in the last 3-4 instances of filling up petrol, the attendants pull out the premium petrol pipe and insert it into the tank and try to start the process ASAP before you can notice. Fortunately I have the habit of getting down from the car or off the bike before they start filling up petrol and have been able to change from premium to regular. This, I have noticed has happened all the instances in the last month or so. Was not so since the 2 petrol pumps in my vicinity have been my regular pumps for the past 4 years. Is this happening else where in the city as well?
This is the Indian Oil petrol pump before More hypermarket. This was my regular previously, but now go to the IOCL on 19th Main in HSR layout or the one at the end of 19th Main next to ORR. Business as usual there.
Here’s what BHPian Jaggu had to say on the matter:
You mean they force premium on unsuspecting customers? This is interesting and should be fun to see how Bangaloreans react to it.

That’s interesting! I stay on Hosa road, off Hosur road and haven’t come across this yet. Could you please share which specific pumps have you experienced this?
