Finally Indian automobile sector is moving towards cleaner fuel, starting from April 2020 its made compulsory for Automobile makers to only manufacture and sale BS6 (Bharat stage 6) vehicles in India.
Indian Oil is first company who officially announced that its 28000 fuel stations across India now have BS6 fuel supply, hence just in case you are planning to buy BS6 Car and concerned about BS6 fuel availability then you need not to worry, just pay a visit to your nearest Indian Oil petrol Pump and you shall get BS6 fuel, often we gets complaints from readers that Fuel station staff in their area is not aware of BS6 fuel availability, to us moreover it appears like understanding issue,
Actual fact is – petrol pump attendants appointed at fuel stations are not educated enough or they are not given any training about BS6 fuel availability which leads to such misinformation, however fact of the matter is All Indian Oil Petrol pumps already have BS6 fuel availability, still if you are extra cautious you have option to ask for Extra mile or power fuel
Earlier Indian Oil Corp (IOC), One of country’s biggest oil supplier, announced that it has started the supply of BS6 petrol and diesel across the country with all its 28,000 petrol pumps dispensing ultra-low sulphur fuel
On the other side other Oil suppliers like Hindustan petroleum and Bharat Petroleum corporation also started supply of BS6 fuel across all major cities but not have made official announcement yet, as their oil supply is still not 100% hence just in case you are unable to get Indian Oil Petrol pump in your area, please prefer Bharat petroleum or Hindustan Petroleum fuel station for your BS6 fuel needs
