    Default Rate Petrol Stations in RWP/ISB April 2016

    Dear All Pakwheelers

    So as the title of the thread suggest , please rate fuel of different petrol pumps in the vicinity of Rawalpindi and Islamabad. All the expert members are invited to comment and review.

    The thread will be updated according to the reviews of different petrol pumps. this thread will help you find the best petrol pump near your residence or office.

    How are we going to rate fuel of petrol pump ?

    1- Quality of fuel:
    Rate out of 10
    2- Percentage of maintaining quality of fuel: (if the quality of fuel was excellent every time you visited the pump for fuel you will give 100% , if the quality of fuel was not maintained and you felt sometimes fuel was excellent and sometimes it was not you give 50% , if 90% of time fuel was excellent you give 90% and so on )
    3- Availability of high octane: YES/NO
    4- Percentage of Availability of high octane: (%age of how often high octane was available upon your visit)
    5- Personal review(milage,knocking etc)


    So lets start with some of the Main petrol pumps (in no order). (List will be updated according to Expert opinions)

    1- Caltex F-6
    2- Shell F-7
    3- PSO F-8
    4- Shell Panjsarki Near PC Rawalpindi
    5- Attock Near Honda Avenue / Gulberg
    6- Attock Near Allama Iqbal open university H-8

    I will start with rating the best petrol station in my opinion
    Shell Panjsarki Near PC Rawalpindi
    1- 9/10
    2- 90%
    3- YES
    4- 60% o
    5- The best petrol pump i think , i have come across, NO knocking in the fuel , the car becomes light in drive , milage increases in my case. once or twice the fuel was not upto the mark.

    2nd Petrol pump which is on my daily route
    Attock Near Honda Avenue/Gulberg
    1- 6/10
    2- 80% of time it fuel quality was 6/10 otherwise lower
    3- YES
    4- 10% or even less than 10% of time high octane was available
    5- Even the high octane from this pump does not feel like high octane, it feels like a regular fuel (or its just me) , well the availability of high octane is very low. the fuel of this pump is not upto the mark but guzara , now it is in my daily route so i just skip the hassle of going somewhere else for better fuel.

    I only trust Caltex F-6, both in terms of quality and quantity I give 10/10.

    But a couple of months ago if I fill Shell Unleaded my car gives better average, so after the DC raided and fined Shell F-7, I have started filling from there and noticed they are now stealing like before.

    I used to go there at caltex f6 two years back. It was my favourite petrol station because of its fuel quality and i used to go from bahria to f6 specially. But since last year there quality has degreaded i experienced knocking and less milage. Thats why stopped going there. Will try sometime.

    And i had the worst experience of my life at shell f7.
    I went for filling up petrol there and stopped the car with the fuel pump. The fuel pump and the fuel cup of my car were on opposite side so he had to bring the nozzle all the way towards other side to fill petrol. I used to stand with fuel pump so i was standing near it and watching the meter. I was filling up with high octance. As soon as he started filling the pipe broke from the end of nozzle because of pressure(and nozzle was on opposite side) and the filler rushed and held the pipe and ran towards the fuel pump to push emergency stop button. And during this he spilled petrol on me. Not only on my body but in my eyes. I shouted at him where was toilet. And rushed towards toiled and cleaned my eyes with water and soap. By grace of God nothing happened. I went to manager and asked him to teach ur staff how to react in such situation and just left without paying.
    Went to emergency got my eyes checked and they were fine.
    Since that incident i dont get out of car and dont go to shell f7.

    F-11 Attock

    1- Quality of fuel: 9
    2- Percentage of maintaining quality of fuel: 90%
    3- Availability of high octane: N/A
    4- Percentage of Availability of high octane: N/A
    5- Personal review: Excellent milage without knocking. I was suprised as well, since I have never used any fuel besides Caltex F-6.

    Only Shell and Total (It was the first OMC in Pakistan to launch 90RON unleaded petrol under the brand name of Hi-Super without any additional cost to the customer.) are providing ULEADED fuel I guess, as I did not find same info on PSO and Attock websites.

    Caltex is now owned by Total, so I guess they are providing same 90 ron unleaded fule now?

    Unleaded petrol would save your catalytic converter for a long time.

    I had noticed a couple of years ago that this pump massively underfills. They lived up to their tradition.

    After reading your review I went there on Monday as my reserve light had just flashed and again the tank was topped up, but more liters were put in as compared to Shell F-7 where I get the tankful for 2800 rupees, Total filled it up for 3100 rupees despite the fact that when I went to Shell I had driven the car more on reserve, but in case of Total, I drove very little after reserve light.

    Don't know why they have done this with u. As I fill my bike from this pump and at current rate 500rs petrol gives me approx 400km which means 40-45 kmpl. By the way which shell pump u r filling from.

    Shell F-7, since a couple of months after it was raided by Islamabad DC and fined, it has started giving full quantity. Before that it was also like Total

    Update on Caltex F-6

    Have been going to caltex since a few weeks now and experiencing low quality fuel then before

    Day before yesterday i went there to fill my tank with high octane. Upon request the filler showed us the color of high octane and we were surprised to see light pink colour of high octane as before we used to see dark red color.

    Upon asking the filer he told us that after being taken over by Total the fuel quality has degraded and many of "samajdad" people have left this fuel station for good.

    And he was right , previously we used to experience too much rush at that pump. But since last two weeks i never experienced rush. One or two car at most were in front of me otherwise empty.

    Then we asked the filler which pump is best. He said Attock near Allama iqbal open university.

    Attock H-8 is good. Their fuel quality is good. But they don't have Hi-octane and they charge more than normal price. At PSO I-9, petrol is 64.48/ltr, Shell F-6 is 64.52/ltr while at Attock H-8 it is 64.60/ltr.

    Caltex sold his distribution and sales business to Total Parco and I heard the same quality degradation issue here in Karachi too. Stop going to old Caltex/new Parco petrol pumps now.

    Observed pso pump on main blue area to give better mileage. The reserve light that used to come on at 500km now comes after 540km on full tank with same driving style.
