Just curious. Some people say gas is gas. Personally, I couldn't disagree more. I have been using BP for awhile, using different octanes in different cars/trucks as needed. I have one buddy who's hardcore Shell. I know another that uses the cheapest he can possibly find, but he tends to drive beaters anyhow.

What do you think?

Personally, I used to use solely 76. Now i've moved to Chevron, and my truck seems to like it better. Runs smoother in general. Normally I use 87 octane but every once in a while i'll put 91 in.

Whatever is cheapest that I can find. But I always stick to 89 octane. Gas is gas is gas IMO. Unless you are in Mexico.

I use 87 octane gas, as that's what my owner's manual recommends.

Gas is gas for the most part. Once I went to a ma and pa shop once with a gas can.(We ride a lot) I swear the fuel was brown. Suppose to have a light yellow tint to it normally. I have bought a lot of gas everywhere(we all do) and as long as you know they sell a lot of gas so its fresh, ie. Arco, Shell, Cheveron, Bp, whatever it should be fine. The smaller no name places tend to have fuel sit in their tanks longer, collecting rust and whatever from storage. I did a wireless install for BP Fuel is Socal and I think all the gas really comes form the same source.

What you said is kinda what I was aiming at with gas from Mexico except that gas has a tendency to have particulate in it so a pre-tank filter for filling up is a good idea ;) Fresh gas is the key tho. In a large(er) city, you can go to almost any gas station and be safe with the gas coming out of their tanks.

i bought texaco 87 octane and my truck pinged the whole tank. The only reason i filled up there was because it was close and convenient. Next time i filled up i got Shell and it quit pinging. Shell is what i normally buy.

i little info for you guys. i drive a tanker and haul gas/diesel for a living. i know in my neck of the woods all the terminals to load at are within a few blocks, we service most of se wisconsin and some ne illinois. all the gas comes in on one big pipeline and branches off to different terminals. the only difference is the additives each brand puts in. for example, citgo/mobil are at the same terminal, but they have 1 tank for mobil additive and one for citgo additive. bp has their own terminal. we load shell gas at the u.s. oil terminal and the guy next to me there today was loading the same gas for a flying-j station. the unbranded mom and pop stations usually just use generic gas as does speedway. or check this out. yesterday we couldnt load for shell because they were out of theyre weekly allocation so loaded citgo gas and took it to a shell station. you really never know. i would just try to stick to the same place all the time. i personally always go to the same shell station.

I use 91 oct. no matter what. Sometimes from conoco or shell, but I dont have a favorite. As long as its 91. I dont use BP tho, on account of all of BP gasolines have 10% ethanol in them.

I recently made a trip to Tenn. & got some of the good stuff! Sunoco 93!! Good stuff indeed!
