    Default Where do you pump gas?

    alright so there are brands that are rated top tier gas and there are brands rated best quality. would you rather pump with the TOP TIER or the BEST QUALITY?


    These brands in the USA meet the TOP TIER detergent gasoline standards:

    I try to always go to BP, I went to Shell once, it's all alcohol -- I got very poor mileage, barely got 80 miles on the tank. Now I always get 89 at the BP, or I get a bottle of Techron with every fill up of 87 elsewhere.

    I don't know where Sam's Club buys their gas but they are always the lowest price in the area. When traveling I always use Shell and have since the 70's.

    I live in a little town with only one gas station, Shell. Most the time i put their V-Power in it. Ive always liked the fuel but the gas station is about 6-8 cents higher than other gas stations in our area because they have no competion. The next nearest station is about 25 minutes away.
