Very good question!
Earlier there was no unleaded or Speed petrol. So there was no confusion. This started about 15 years ago (approx.) with the entry of good cars and bikes in India. Lead used to be mixed with petrol to increase efficiency. But it also spread pollution and also was not suitable for certain mechanisms such as catalytic converters. So that was stopped in India and a new variety started selling.

That was "unleaded" petrol.

But it was still a simple kind of petrol. In order to given a better option and to increase sales, some oil companies started selling special petrol (branded fuel). It was pure and also mixed with some additives which would increase the performance of the vehicle. It is costlier than ordinary petrol but gives more mileage and power.

Bharat Petrolium sells "Speed".
Indian oil sells "Xtra Premium".
IBP sells "Power"

(Above facts are true as per my memory...but you may verify)

Which petrol you should use?
It depends upon various factors. Our automobile experts at FOTN can give more information on this. If your engine does not need a special kind of fuel, there is no point in spending extra bucks for it.

Following article has been copy pasted from internet (for additional knowledge).
Source : http://marketingpractice.blogspot.com/2007/01/speed-high-performance-petrol.html


Speed is India's first branded petrol.Launched in 2002 by Bharat Petroleum Corporation ( BPCL) , the brand assured in the concept of positioning and differentiation in the Petroleum marketing which was by nature a commodity.
Speed is marketed as a high performance petrol. Speed is the blend of petrol with high speed additives sourced from Chevron Texaco. The additives are expected to increase the performance of the vehicle.
The branding of petrol is more difficult than any other products because of the following reasons:
a. The customers are very price sensitive. With the petrol prices moving upwards always, spending a premium for branded petrol is a tough call for a customer.
b. There is no tangible benefit that branded petrol can offer to the customer. The advantage of using Speed will not be visible to the customer at the outset. The change may have to be noticed on the performance of the vehicle .

In that sense, Speed has been very successful in creating a niche in this market. The brand is said to be contributing 25% of the total petrol sales of BPCL. Speed is said to have 50% share in the branded petrol segment.
BPCL has carefully nurtured this brand. The brand name itself gives a headstart to the acceptability for the brand since Speed is linked to Performance. Speed is positioned as High Performance Petrol. The company has roped in Narain Karthikeyan as its brand ambassador. The TVCs and the print and outdoors reinforced the positioning of the brand as a performance booster. Narain's was a right choice for the brand since he personifies performance driving in India.

Speed has competition from Indian Oil brand: Extra Premium. Besides using Narain as its brand ambassador, BP also has other campaigns promoting the brand on performance . Speed also extended itself to include Diesel fuel under the Hi-Speed diesel brand.

Even before the launch of branded petrol, BP had initiated a corporate campaign " Pure For Sure" to position the company as one that provides the Purest Petrol/Diesel.The campaign was aimed at promoting retail outlets selling fuels. Another corporate campaign was " Energising Lives" aimed at raising the corporate image beyond fuel retailing. These moves were to preempt the competition arising out from private players like Reliance Industries entering the fuel retailing segment.
With fuel prices touching new heights and with customers looking for alternate fuel options, it will be tough for Speed to convince the customer to pay a premium for the brand.

 Oil companies should reduce price on unleaded petrol when rupee becomes strong  in comparison to dollar . Oil companies are only interested in increasing price when rupee becomes weak . But oil companies are not decreasing price of lead free petrol . It is immoral action of oil companies .
