According to the source, MyPetrolPump currently taking orders only on its website, but a MyPP mobile app is in the works. They charge a flat delivery fee of INR 99 for any quantity of fuel up to 100 liters. They add a rupee per liter if its more than 100 liters.
They don’t store any fuel – they said, we pick up the ordered fuel from a nearby gas station and delivers it to the customer.
There are rumors on social media, people are asking if MyPetrolPump is playing with fire. Many requested Regulators to look into the safety of home delivery for fuel.
Our refuellers are safer than the trucks and containers currently delivering liquid petroleum gas (LPG) to homes for gas stoves. “Diesel and petrol are not pressurized and are safer to transport, especially in these small quantities,” it says.
