Most people have set a particular petrol pump from where they get their vehicles filled with fuel. But is it a good idea and does it make any difference?
In this video, the YouTuber explains which is the best company to get the petrol or diesel filled in your vehicle.

Which is the Best Petrol and Diesel Company?
As per the information in the video, India is home to over 83,000 petrol pumps. Out of these, over 8,000 petrol pumps belong to private companies like Reliance and over 74,00 are PSU like Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum. But there are only 23 oil refineries in the country from where petrol and diesel come into these filling stations. Interestingly, it doesn’t depend on the company of the refinery and filling stations. The government has set standards for the quality of fuel and hence the petrol pumps get the petrol and diesel from the nearest refinery.
