  2. Bunk's that I found good are :

    Shell ( so far I've tried with Whitefield/J P Nagar/Kanakapura road/Lalbagh Road)
    Cauvery- BP ( near Lalbagh west gate)
    SRS -BP ( near B P wadia road, basavanagudi. IIRC,it's a 24 hour bunk)
    IOC-COCO BTM layout near water tank
    IOC-Soubhagya enterprises( next to BMTC HSR layout depot. I think this one belongs to one ex-minister/ex-mla. But had no issues so far :) )
    HP-Mats fuel park, next to Cosmos Mall, Brookefields
    BPCL-Jainpax near R R nagar arch
    BPCL Residency road
    HP-COCO, CV Raman Nagar

    That's all I can recollect for now :)

  3. CBD area of bangalore still owned by defense forces,Bangalore used have military cantonment area,I guess that is when petrol bunks started to function.
    So no surprise it has some military names, again even in army bunkers will have storage for fuel.

    Is it a COCO, thats news for me..
    Their attendants have tried tricks to fool me, but in vain.
    Also there's been some not so good comments in one of the other forums.

    COCOs are a farce. COCOs will be operated by designated Company Officer. Manpower and other services will be provided by the selected Service Provider for day to day efficient operation.

    IOC BTM layout is a COCO. I have tried that bunk many times and the diesel there is good.

    Past month onwards, I have been fuelling shell diesel and its way better than IOC :thumbup:

    There is nothing to correct. I gave you the dictionary meaning of Bunker. One of them is A bin or tank especially for fuel storage and another is an underground fortification, often with a concrete projection above ground level for observation or gun emplacements. Both meanings are correct and can be used in context.

    Coming to "I could not able to / can not able to", I have not understood it either. I guess it must be the effect of transliteration of the local language. I always smile when I hear some one say " I am not able to....". Sounds nice for a change.

    Yes its a 24 hr bunk but almost always stuffed with vehicles.
    Morning to night - 2 wheelers / 4 wheelers
    night to morning - SRS buses

    THis is a relatively newly opened bunk right? I have tried it twice and they seem to be good. At least mileage and pick up are same.
    I"m extremely interested in knowing about the HP bunk near kengeri on mysore rd .( Its opposite to that huge marriage hall near kengeri ).
    Hopefully someone here has filled fuel from there.
    Any reviews on that? That not only seems to be good but the fuel price is also a bit cheap. at least diesel costs 30p less
