I read a few randomly , Is bunk = Pump ?
I believe Petrol Bunk is wrong terminology being used here
fftopicThe price diff is just more than Rs. 3 now
In south India people call it as Bunk not pump.
So this is right or wrong terminology ?
What should you actually call it in any part of India
PSU Pumps 54.21 and Shell 57.50. Difference 3.29 bucks.
Well there is a BUNKer underground where the fuel (Petrol/Diesel) is stored and is PUMPed to fill the vehicles.
So either one should be a correct term for me, as long as one can understand what we mean.
They also call them as Filling Stations, so what are they actually Filling?
Agree with Kiran,there is nothing right or wrong,language evolved in the same fashion.
A filling station, fueling station, garage, gasbar (Canada), gas station (United States and Canada), petrol bunk or petrol pump (India), petrol garage, petrol station (Australia, Hong Kong, Ireland, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa and United Kingdom), service station (Australia), or servo (Australia), is a facility which sells fuel and usually lubricants for motor vehicles.
I've always stuck to BP from the past 4 yrs and till date i've had no problems.
Consistently getting 15kmpl . Very few times i've tried other bunks in the city.
Some of which are
IOC - Near NGV [ Pathetic quality ]
HP - near Kengeri on Mysore road. (This is actually a new bunk and seems to offer good quality at a lower price too, i think diesel is about 30ps less here)
just pulling legs of Bangalore guys
Bunker is no way related to Petrol, its military term
Whatever experience, I had in Bengaluru, Shell Petrol Pump, Whitefield even costly was correct measure and clean, so felt satisfied with bike & car efficiency
