Author Topic: 93 Octane should be listed? Back to Topics

I find it weird that 91 Octane is the only Premium fuel listed in the app yet the only station near me that actually sells 91 Octane is Sunoco. 93 Octane is the norm for Premium for me it seems. Can we get both added?

Also, I would have looked to see if this was already posted but there seems to be no search bar to search the forums other than searching for a particular user name. Am I just missing it? The "browse other forums" brings up non-gas forums only?

We have some stations with 94 prem also. I sometimes try to put a price in the comment section.

In my area, the eastern half of PA, the common grades are:
87 - Regular
89 - Mid-grade
92 or 93 - Premium
Most Sunoco stations here sell premium as 91 octane and Ultra 93, but since 93 octane premium is the norm at other stations, Ultra 93 is what is included on the station sign.

Around here, and in the parts of OH, IL, MI and KY where I typically travel the grades of fuel at the stations I frequent are typically as follows:

87 - Regular
89 - Mid-Grade
91 - Premium

Once in a while I'll stop at a Sunoco or Phillips station that has 93 octane as well, but these are less frequent.

Octane does not matter... Other than to know what a perticular station sells... Realistically it is/should be lviewed as relative.... Just like I do not buy at atarioms who do not advertise prices for higher grades a...I also know that certain stations sell 91 and others 92 or 93 as premium. Again is all relative.

My last post was incorrect. The common grades in my area are

89 - Regular
91 - Mid-Grade
93 - Premium

There are a few Sunoco stations that sell a 2nd grade of premium that I think is 95 octane.

The norm in my area is 91. There are a handful of Sunoco's that sell 91 and 93 but they are few and far between.
