Where I live Shell is the most expensive station but I always see people buying fuel there even when another brand across the street is as much as 15 to 20 cents cheaper. It usually is only a 5-10 cent spread but i have seen it at the 20 cent spread. Just wondering if there are a lot on this site that are loyalty to one brand.

I usually shop wherever is cheapest. Usually that is Costco in my area. Although I get a fair amount at BP.

Yes. WaWa

I have done test on a few gas stations and WaWa has given me the best MPG and sounds better driving it.

I have a Smart Car which is pretty much Mercedes and I see the Top Tier gas stations. Don't see how that's true

7-Eleven and Mobil is by far the worst gas in the car. I got 30 - 32 MPG and driving habits were the same exact as any other gas station. Hess is about 35 - 36 MPG. BP was about 34. WaWa has given me 36+ MPG, mainly 38 - 40 MPG.

Plus my car requires premium gas but I am trying a test on Ethanol Free Gas even though it cost more

Honestly I would love to payless for gas but I'm going for the one that has the best performance for my car

So WaWa wins. Not sure how many people know about WaWa but it started up north and now is opening up down in Florida like crazy!

When local, I tend to be loyal to Shell. When traveling, price tends to take priority.

I've always been as loyal to them as they have been to me. In other words: No. I try to stick with major brands - not hard to do, there aren't many independents anymore, anyway. I've never noticed better performance or mileage in one brand over another.

The exception is Arco. I've still got a bad taste in my mouth from their posting of cheaper prices, then tacking on a fee for any kind of plastic. I guess they don't do that anymore, but my habit is formed. :-)

Yes, I am loyal, to the lowest priced station. Anyone who spends 20 cents more when there is a cheaper alternative across the street is throwing money away.

Loyal?
And here I could not understand why the prices are as they are.
Loyal?
I wonder if this LOYAL-TY does not encourage owners to reward us with those higher prices?
