I really liked Chevron, but they have pulled all the gas stations out of my area. Now I do not know and would like to see other peoples comments regarding this question.

In my area, we have Speedway, Sheetz, Shell, Exxon, Sunoco and Marathon.

I'd suggest using the busiest station with the assumption the more they sell the less H2O or other un desirable elements have had time to accumulate. My problem is knowing where they sell the most premium. There will be owners who swear by each on your list as well as swear at them. Very few secrets here. If one was leaps and bounds better than the rest it would be well known.

Oh man, I miss going to sheetz. When I lived in the states and was in college I practically lived on sheetz food.

A lot of gas is the same. Most stations buy from the same distributor and slap their name on it. Maybe except for specialty fuels like Chevron Techron etc. I now in the NJ area a lot of stations buy from the same distributor, so it's tough to say.

That's true around here, we have a Marathon refinery 30 miles from here and most of the trucks run out of there. I know each brand will tell you that the refinery blends it to their spec's, so they are different. That's hard for me to beleive but it could be true. Can't help you.

I use the local Shell for all my cars whenever possible. They don't have any ethanol in any grade of fuel (of course my Challenger only gets 93 octane). There's another Shell near my job and they do add 10% ethanol at that station. As for political issues, I don't see them being any worse than middle-east sourced brands.

My mechanic is also a Citgo station and they don't have ethanol either, but not long ago I was in upstate NY and filled up at a Citgo and was disappointed that that particular station did have ethanol.

I think they are all pretty much the same.

I use Sunoco as it is 100% US - no foreign oil.

CITGO is owned by Hugo Chavez.. I ain't support that guy. Doesn't matter if that's the last gas station around.. I'll walk.

Since performance isn't really an issue, and all oil companies are greedy bastiges, I try to support US greedy bastiges.

@David

Thanks for posting that info, since they pulled all the Chevrons out in our area, they replaced them with Shell stations, looks like Sheetz and Speedway will no longer see me around.

No BP on the list? It's got exclusive seawater additives.

It's not that I really needed 370 hp...but having 150+ hp riding shotgun at a moment's bidding w/o a 6000 rpm moonshot is what makes me feel like I'm in the right car for me. The roar of a v8 seals the deal!

The Google keyword is "ethanol-free gas". The truth is coming to light. Check out http://pure-gas.org/
