Default what kinda of gas do you use?

With gas prices the way they are, I was just wondering which company you guys think has the best gas? Even if you are tuned for a higher octane. I have a tendency to go to Chevron alot.....seems to be cleaner than most. BP is good too, but always more expensive....

I go to Shell stations. A little more expensive, but worth it in my mind.

Usually Chevron, because it has Techron and that is simply smarter.

I don't think theres a gas station around here that doesn't have ethanol in it. I usually go to Major, or Shell.

I wish I had a Sunoco station near by, I like their fuel too. But the closest place to get any is at the drag strip almost 50 miles away. The Shell station is a couple blocks down the road.

I just won't use Wal-mart/Murphy Oil, Sam's, or any of thoes station infront of the grocery stores. I normally use Shell or Exxon. I'd like to have some Sunoco stations around here, that would be 1st pick.

Either you need to check your ears/eyes, or they were lying. Car can't run on that 90% water.

BTW, try lighting a 10:90 gas:water combo with a blowtorch and tell me how that goes.

I actually talked to a Chevron gas truck driver and he said that Chevron only transports gasoline in it's tanks, and that other companies also transport, other fuels in theirs to save trans costs.i.e. kerosene, ethanol, etc. He siad that there can be residuals in o9ther tanks....but who knows for sure.
I think Chevron runs a little cleaner too.
