I like BP, but my car runs well on Sunoco also, and marathon, though
I don't like marathon they aren't green, nor agree on equality, for there employees. I don't go there very often.

BP is all the above, Sunoco is green but isn't very into Equality.

my car gets the worst mileage ever on SHELL so I aVOID IT.

The so called experts on fuels (gas, diesel, ethanol, etc.) are of the opinion all brands are pretty much alike, but give their additives different names (techron, etc.). In southern California most of the trucks delivering fuel filled up at the refinery offering the best price, just like I fill up at the station not too far away with the lowest price. Talk to a delivery driver next time you see one. You might be surprised.

I like Chevron and Shell but, in my opinion, they are worth 1-2 cents more, at most. That's the cost of the added Techron or equivalent. You can buy Techron on sale and add half Oz. per 10 gallons.

Taco Bell produces the best gas in my humble opinion. It's dependable and aromatic. I get good mileage out of it.

All gas is gas. Some that have had their engines quit may disagree with that statement.

It depends on where the fueling station gets its fuel from. Not all Shell fuel is Shell fuel, for example. There is a station that I know of that purchases some of their fuel from the local Shell supplier. And they purchase some of their fuel from an alternate source. So, grading brands is difficult in at least some instances.

The cheapest.

Gas is basically gas. It comes out of the same pipeline. Difference is in what additives are added locally/regionally. And that is not a big deal to me. Price is more an issue.

Nice discussion, Cheapguy! Been interesting! Even if you are a 'jersey boy' No offence on that!

Now about that Port Reading in your area? I hear that facility has generated potential operators but that Hess is going to scrap it. Whats your take?

Jef4ers...." The majors don't want that crap at their certified stations.......so where does it go?"



What exactly is a "certified" station?Where does it go? It gets re-refined. Indepemdent station are not dumping grounds for "stale gas", "crap", "transmix", or whatever other myths you're trying to perpetuate. On the rare occasion that substandard or contaminated fuel does hit the streets due to loading rack error or whatever, it is just as likely to land at a "certified" branded station as an independent.


"You probably have very spec. gasoline in your storage. Its only the 2% that makes the test not specific."


What?
