Which fuel company do you go with?

Curious as to which fuel company you guys usually go too.

I have a co-op membership card which gives me awesome rewards once a month. I have a tune so I run 91 in my 6 (which is recommended for it)

I was just curious if anyone did the research and found out Co-Op premium is junk or?

Who ever has the cheapest price. I used to only go to Chevron but it really does not matter. I noticed no difference when I started going to off brand gas stations. The additives are a joke and gas is regulated pretty well these days.

here in mexifornia, all gas is the same..the only difference would be what a dealer wants in that gas...like ethanol, dealers offer gas stations a .10cent lower price for adding the crap..

The additives are not a joke. Find an insider at Chevron, Shell, Bp, Texaco, whatever and they'll explain it to you. All it took was one short Vietnamese gentleman with a Ph.D in chemistry from Chevron to convince me.

At the time, about '05 or so, only Chevron had additives in all three grades and Shell had it in premium. Now, mostly through botched mergers, others have caught up.


To answer the question in short, Chevron whenever possible, Shell second, any major brand after that, never the off brands. Always, always, premium.

I try to use a station that has a larger than normal clientel of higher end cars that require premiun...At least I know the premium grade will be "fresher" and possibly already in the hose before I use it...lol...

I have oil refinery chains and Marathon and Exxon to choose from. I generally like Exxon better since I have noticed the other day my SS pinging from the refinery chain so I filled back up with 93 from the Exxon just as it was 93 from the refinery chain and it has since quit pinging. Going out before I go today and pull my fuse to reset the map.

I thought there was something in the manual about recommended fuels/additives, where Mobil was one of them. Might just be marketing. Started with Sunoco, only because they're close. Went back to Mobil now that they've dropped the extra fees for using a card at the pump... that really annoyed me, greedy bastards! Nothing but 93 since I got the car.

Sunoco only for me. I get the best mpg with it. There are no shell or Exxon stations near me. Places like delta sonic are the worst places to get fuel. They water it down so much it's not worth the savings or risk.

I get on Gas Buddy and look for the cheapest BP or Shell in my area. Usually my location has the cheapest gas in town anyway.

Good gas is the same price as what we call "crap gas" here but if a crap station is running a great deal I'll run a tank of it, won't hurt anything.

It's a mental thing, everything else we will pay slightly more for a supposedly better brand.
