Any thoughts on how good Costco gas is? Always cheaper in my neck of the woods!

"Sams is better price and quality"

Hmmm, don't see Sams' listed as a top tier gas. Am I missing something?

It's good gas. Just have to time when you go so you can get in and out quickly.

It is top tier meaning there is no better unless it is race gas.

We don't have Costco, but if it's like Sam's Club, the gas seems to be good quality. I've never had trouble with it, and it's usually always at least a nickle lower in price than everywhere else, and sometimes as much as 8 or 9 cents lower.

None near me, but have used in the best with no problems. Haven't really had any problems with fuel in years with lots of different brands. Just when you might get some water in the fuel, people will have problems.

Judging by 40 cars in line, and to save six or seven cents/litre, it must be good.

Costco at least in the Boston MA area is a top tier gas supplier that means it is at least as good as any other supplier. At least that is my understanding and yes Costco consistently has the lowest or at least is among the lowest price suppliers in these parts. Not all Costco locations have gas in MA.

Here where I am, Costco has 2 wholesale suppliers. One comes from Queens, NY the other from Southern Jersey. I have seen both wholesalers drop gasoline
at area Exxon and BP stations.

Don't waste your time worrying about "good gas and bad gas." It's gasoline. Sure, you'll get a "bad tank of gas" from time to time, but that can happen at a top tier retailer or some backwater place in Canada.

Costco needs to get with the program and build a warehouse in the area around Clear Lake City. As it stands now, you have to drive across Houston to get to a Costco. We do have Sam's Club but that's not Top Tier Gas.

I buy gas from Costco regularly and have never had a problem. They are usually the cheapest around and they tend to be slow to respond when prices spike upward locally.

Good gas. It's "Top Tier" PLUS, at least around here, it's probably the busiest station in town so it's going to have a huge turn-over and always be fresh!

I have been happy with it also. It's considered a Top Tier fuel.
