Guys, recommend some credit cards that gives the most reward points for fuel and maybe online shopping (amazon/flipkart).

Fuel is a tricky thing. How much fuel do you fill monthly is key.

Secondly, most cards (being co-branded) will only reward you when you fill at same brand outlets.

Thirdly, card machines may need to be of a specific company again.

Finally, still things could go wrong!

Thank you very much for the detailed information.

How is this possible? Let's say that I buy a BP card and if I fill fuel in a BP fuel station, then I should be able to get the offer irrespective of the card machine used right?

Nopes.

IOCL has a tie up with Paytm for reward points. Pay by Paytm and you get some points. 2 petrol pumps in my work area have the paytm POS machine, but only one gives the points.

So here I spent say 2K, used Paytm on a Paytm POS at IOCL but no points!

Then there is the AMEX thing - the offer only works with specific machines at HPCL. Not all have it.

I would suggest to visit cardexpert for these. LFAL may have some pointers as well.

If your fuel expenses are like 5k+, then get Amex membership card.
Load phonepe/paytm wallet with Amex card with 6k (=1.5kx4) per month and pay with wallet.
This gives about 7% (for everything you pay with wallet).

I have tried using AMEX MRCC card at fuel pumps, their acceptance is super low.

For fuel, have a look at CitiBank IndianOil card. They are accepted at most IOC fuel pumps and waive surcharges. However, this card offers value only for fuel purchases only.
