Default Best GAS (company) for our cars...

Please comment on your experiences with the big and small gasoline stations and brands out there, please state what part of the country your in so we can get a more specific idea (I live in PA so I don't know of anything out of the northeast of the country).

Thank You and keep on cruisin'.

I usually use ExxonMobil:
Consistant quality, plenty of stations and Speedpass is so darn convenient.

And the stations with built-in QuickyMarts usually have decent restrooms (which my favorite traveling companion thinks is important).

I live in Central Florida and usually purchase gas @ BJ's warehouse. It is a few cents (1-3) less than Hess, Shell & Speedway. I usuall buy gas at the least price available.

I've tried Hess, Amoco, Shell, Citgo, Gulf and BP, can't remember any other, but from my experience I'll stick with Shell, I notice the performance difference, I put Hess once (I was almost out of gas) and I could feel the drop in performance, even though I put higher grade Hess than Shell.

I'd put Sunoco in if I couldn't find Shell.

Citgo, Gulf, etc, I have always had a problem with, I say if you want your car to last, get some decent gas, I am one that does NOT sacrifice durability for price (my father taught me that, may he R.I.P.)

I've always found my GT turbo to run best on Chevron Supreme.

I'm a salesman and always on the road, so at times when I need gas I'll stop at a station selling for a fair price. But lately, I've been using Costco's gas. They have been 10-15 cents cheaper then everyone else and they use Amoco clear premium 93 octane.

I use Sheel and/or BP because i have credit cards with them. I have expeiremented a little with them by using their premium grade instead of regular to see if i could detect a diffence in Mileage and performance
Seems like i can always (in my mind) detect an improvement in performance right after i put it in. but as i think back i don't think i ever noticed the difference the next day when i had forgotten about putting it in. I have checked Mileage mecanically and found no improvement in MPG

We are in Fort Worth Texas. Shell, Texaco or Chevron. All are pretty close in price and only a couple of cents more than the cheapy gas and perform much better.
