Tired of Long Queues? Here’s How to Get Petrol & Diesel Delivered at Your Doorsteps

Amid fluctuating costs and fuel shortage, is it possible to get petrol and diesel delivered to our homes in case of emergencies? Here are some startups making it possible in India.

Tired of Long Queues? Here’s How to Get Petrol & Diesel Delivered at Your Doorsteps

A Zomato employee grabbed many eyeballs — both on the streets and on social media — as he was seen trotting along the roads of Hyderabad on a horse to deliver food. He ditched his bike and chose this means of transport after he had to wait in long queues for fuel at petrol pumps on 2nd and 3rd January, 2024.

Petrol and diesel supplies were hampered this week after truck, bus and tanker drivers launched a three-day strike to protest a new hit-and-run law under the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita. This law imposes severe penalties on drivers if they flee accident spots. 

This caused an alarm among citizens amidst fears of a fuel shortage, leading to many buying fuel out of panic. At such times, if one wants to avoid waiting in line, door-to-door petrol and diesel delivery comes to the rescue. Fuel delivery platforms saw increased interest in the backdrop of this uncertainty.

Just like one orders food, you can now order fuel too. An upcoming industry, few startups provide doorstep delivery of fuel in cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru. Indian Oil offers Fuel@Call for diesel doorstep delivery for industrial and commercial customers. Bharat Petroleum’s Fuelkart and JioBP also offer doorstep delivery for commercial purposes. 

In India, fuel delivery companies/startups have to tie up with oil companies to get permission to deliver fuel. Individual and non-registered proprietors are not allowed to transport and deliver fuel. 

If you want door-step delivery of fuel, you could try start-ups such as FuelBuddy, Hamsafar, PepFuels and Repos Energy, who are serving majorly in Bengaluru, Mumbai and Delhi-NCR but some also provide services in Hyderabad, Chennai, Kolkata, Pune, Thane, Ahmedabad, Lucknow, Kanpur and more.

How to order

All you have to do is register on the platform of your choice, download the app, provide your location and the type of fuel you want, check the price, confirm the order and choose the time slot for delivery. Some also have the option of calling and placing your order. Most of these startups provide doorstep delivery of diesel.
