When driving locally, I purchase fuel from 1 of three Top-Tier Shell stations based on price. When traveling, I tend to be more price oriented.

There are a few stations with consistently good price and consistently good quality. So I keep going back. Simple.

yes,usually at Hess, because it is right down the street from me, and it most often has the best gas prices in the area. I usually get a 5% discount with my credit card at a stand-alone gas station, so if the prices are a bit higher than 7-11 down the street, I still go to Hess. (because 7-11 is not a stand-alone gas station)

I most want 100% ethanol-free gasoline(E0) in my tank, & the Everett, WA E0 station is most convenient for me. Presently, the Burlington, WA Costco E10 is 20% cheaper & I try to go there.

Usually but it's because I'm partial to one brand of gas and only use Shell V-Power. I only fuel at Shell locations and fill up when my gauge is at a half tank.
