LPG Pumps

With the cost of petrol and diesel spiralling up, one has to start thinking at alternate means of fuel and/or transport. While the government is doing its bit in public transport by introducing more buses and more recently inaugurating the Metro Rail project, the onus is also on the people to find solutions in the mean time. Understanding that people today are both money conscious and environment conscious, Maruti has come out with the WagonR duo which helps in this direction. This is the first factory fitted LPG car entering the Indian market and marks the launch of LPG as an accepted alternate fuel.

Though this does sound good, the paucity of LPG pumps is going to be the biggest bane of these cars. Unlike Delhi and Gujarat, Bangalore has very few LPG pumps and here is a list:

1. BPCL Pump,
No:2 Residency Road
2. Ramachandra Pump
Mysore Road
3. Sri Venkateshwara Service Station
Near M.E.S Office, New Town,
4. Varadaraja Service Station
Indian Oil,
5. Arunodaya Filling Station
6. Indian Oil,
7. Engrads Gasoline Station
IOC Pump
Opp. BHEL, Mysore Road
Mahadevapura P.O
9. Kaveri Service Station,
IOC Pump.
80ft Road, Koramangala

If you are out looking for a new car and saving money is a criterion, here is a choice. :-)

    Always welcome Ravi. Since they don’t have one for a test drive we can’t really test how smooth the switch-over is. Lets wait and watch…

    I hope your country has taken on a standard for LPG fitting, as this fuel can be very dangerous if total care is not taken when using and installing LPG systems to an automotive application.
