Where do you get your gas??

Where do you fill up with gas? I assume everyone is using at least 91 octane premium fuel but where is your favorite place to get it and why?

Note that the manual recommends a "Top Tier" gas and in looking at their website, here are retailers that sell "top tier" gas. Does this make a difference to anyone??

TOP TIER Gasoline Retailers:

QuikTrip
Chevron
Texaco
MFA Oil Co.
Conoco
Phillips 66
76
Entec Stations
Shell
The Somerset Refinery, Inc.
Kwik Trip / Kwik Star
Aloha Petroleum
Tri-Par Oil Co.
Turkey Hill Minit Markets
Mileage Stations
Road Ranger
Chevron Canada
Shell Canada
Petro-Canada
Sunoco Canada

Pilot most of the time. I don't know what brand of gas they get. That's the gas I put in the car.

MY gas I get from home made chili and the occasional 12,000 calorie taco salad.

I use Chevron 93 here in Texas. Sometimes will use Texaco.
I have used Chevron 87 in my 2003 Tahoe with no issues of gunk or getting bad gas.
We used 93 Chevron in the 97 Z28 also with no issues and no bad gas. That car ran very well on Chevron 93.

Shell. I own stock

If you use discount gasoline there's a reason you save a few pennies per gallon. They use fewer additives, usually have a higher sediment level (just look at a fuel filter on a car that's used nothing but discount gas) and are at the low-end of the octane range for which they're rated. As always, you get what you pay for.

Here in Salt Lake City the big ones are Holiday Oil or Maverik. The highest octane is 91 here.
