    Default PSO Petrol Pump F-8 Islamabad.

    Aoa.
    As I have experienced 3 times that fuel quality and quantity of PSO petrol pump situated near kacheri in F-8 Islamabad is not up to the mark.

    I had got my car filled from them and my car did only 350-370 kilometers in one full tank and pick of car was also not up to the mark. I thought maybe there is some issue with my car. but same experience on 2nd and 3rd fill.

    Whereas my car does at least 460-480 kilometers in one tank from other pumps like Caltex F-6 & F-10 and Attock I-8 under exactly same driving conditions and I feel pick and response of car much better. I always use 50:50 mix of high octane and super.
    Is this only me or anyone else also experienced same thing?
    Car under discussion is Civic 8th gen.
    Please share your views.

    Regards.

    It shouldn't be a 50:50 mix. 80:20 seems like a reasonable choice.

    High quantity of high octane fuel may be one of the reason of bad mileage. These engines are optimized for regular fuel, not at High octane number.

    This is only mixed owing to the hypothesis that regular fuel in Pak is sub standard. Only refill at company operated or some reputable station or atleast try to.

    I did some research on the same and guess what high octance number isn't good for engine life ( for engine optimised at regular fuel ). You can add high octane but don't make it a regular habit.

    Suggestion noted bro. Will use 80:20 mix from now onward.

    But you know. Civic has CAT converter choking issues due bad quality fuel we get here. That's why I use high octane as I don't want my car sounding like a rickshaw. Till now it's 75k driven and no issues of CAT so far M.A.

    But the thing which bothers me is under same driving conditions. Same fueling ratio from other pumps(already mentioned in main post) give good mileage. Only this pump is giving mileage issue. I was strongly recommended to this pump by a no of people but my experience with them is pretty bad. I guess there is something fishy regarding their fuel quality and quantity.

    Yes, it may be an issue of bad fuel.

    Well this may sound little geeky but it is possible if you are feeling free and have spare time and cash at your hand.

    Take sample from 2-3 pumps and get it verified from lab. Nerdy ? Yes, may be

    And abt high octane, do some googling your self and you will know the effects of high octane on normal engines ( engines for normal fuel ) .
    High octane ignites even before the spark plugs kicks in, coz of heat and pressure which results in inefficient burning and bad mileage

    LoL. Nice idea though.
    Only that person can do it who is totally free and doesn't care about time. Not my cup of tea.
    Well I have also recommended my friend to get his car filled from this pump. If his experience is also same as mine. Then definitely pump is questionable.

    Hmmm. Agreed.
    But I only use it just to enhance CAT converter's life. Otherwise it's waste of money. Next time will use it in lesser ratio.

    hmm old engines like d15b love hi-octane.. you can feel the performance increasing, as for PSO , i never fill from other stations except Caltex as they play the quantity trick with you. once i noticed that when they are filling petrol you see theyre hand on the nozzel and if you carefully see at end or somewhere in between they do some pulling back and forward in the lifter in the nozzle , where as all gas stations in islamabad are automated you just click the nozzel and itll automatically fill up petrol to the punched number like 1000rs on the screen. My friends have also noticed this and also have shared this with me as well(fuel ending before its due expectence). whereas in Caltex in i-9 they just pull up the lifter in nozzle and then take their hand off the thing , the petrol fills up automatically.

    Ive gotten petrol from PSO once when my petrol was at end and majboori lead me to it , i filled up 1000rs petrol and when exited the station, car started chocking , it was kachra in the petrol , gave it a engine cuttoff once to remove it .. whereas in same situation ive never had this kachra prob from any other station

    Well I believe you are wrong about that pump ..the pump is still company owned and I get my gli filled from there and never and u mean never faced any knocking issue but yes the guys at the pump are the issue u have seen them trying to fool others that the tank is full....I myself stand with him while he is filling and when the fuel starts to drip out then I am satisfied...

    Since november/december, my car is getting filled from caltex f-6 strictly and I'm very much satisfied as mileage and pick of its petrol is much better as compared to other pumps. My car is giving 10.5-11.5km/l with AC and normal foot. Which is pretty good for 1.8L car.
    No doubt it's the best petrol pump in twin cities.

    the thing you are talking about is called knocking... which happens in bad and low octance fuel... as for civic.. my 1996 civic requires 90 octane fuel. all Hondas require premium fuel... normal petrol is around 80 octance
    the problem is not our govt... its the people..

    F-8 Caltex is also good PSO F-8 despite company operated is questionable not regarding the quantity but rather about quality.

    It is interesting how many people comment on hi-oct usage etc... there is a certain compression ratio 10+:1 after which hi-oct is recommended. The ron levels (have forgotten) required by the civic and corolla engines suggest we use 2:3 hi-oct:regular. That is what the engine is designed from. I also verified from Caltex and PSO personel (not any pump, direct company) about the RON levels of their fuels. I did my research for corolla and it required 2/5th hi-oct and 3/5th regular. There is no issue if you use more hi-oct. The engines are DESIGNED for it. i recently got a civic and discussed the issue with one of the top mechanics in Honda I-8. I went there because the manual of civic said only regular fuel is sufficient for the car. This was a contradiction to what i read on it online on their site. The manual was wrong. he said that the Cat-conv gets a lot of carbon and needs replacement sooner if no hi-oct is used. I advice you to use Min. 2/5th hi-oct in your car, and no issues if more hi-oct is used. your 50:50 is good one. keep it. and the slow burning etc.. argument only works when the engine has low compression. research the issue of RONs required by your engine, RON level of regular and hi-oct. discuss with some technical person and my advice. stick to your 50:50

    I think the quality of PSO fuel is anyway lower than Shell and Calex since no improving additives are added by PSO.
