Yeah what the topic says.. As for me i like Sunoco..
BPs 92 octane, Marathons 93, Swifty's 91, are the big three that I use.
Usually shell for me.
if im at the track its sunoco (as i havent seen a one of their stations out on the street)
it depends on what car i'm in... my Mazda gets the best gas mileage with Shell, my CRX liked Mobile the best. I hardly ever use Chevron but I have no problems with them. When I still had my CRX, my car felt like it ran smoother and stronger with 76 but that might just be psychological(sp?)... No matter what car i'm in Arco/AM/PM was the worse. Especially in my CRX, my B16 would start to detonate a little with their wattered down 91.
Am I the only person that just uses the cheapest?
There are some bad sides of using cheap gas though..
Except in Texas everything's switching to 10% ethanol, so that pisses me off....
I'm not using anything less than 91 octane in this car regardless if I can or not.
It's always had premium, it's always gonna get premium as long as I own it.
If I build or turbo I'll use something better but for now a stock car is getting cheap gas.
Tell me about it...Crazy stuff. I know the 2 places around here that dont have the signs that say 10% ethanol. Gotta go to roanoke (right by TMS...5 minutes from my house) or the shell by the ihop in denton (by UNT).
Only two places the prelude gets gas from. I dont drive it as much anymore cause the heater sucks. the heater in the protege rocks.
Marathons 93 or BPs 92 for me.
Shell 91 or Mobil 91. My car has a slight pinging at WOT with anything and everything I put in it. Damn you all and your 92/93 octane!
I put in 93 i forgot to mention. also i fuel up my d15b7 with the good stuff!
anything but Chevron
I had trouble with dirty gas from them 20 years ago. A couple of years ago I got a pre-approved card from then with 5 cents a gallon discount for a while.
Sure enough I lost a fuel pump on one car, and clogged both fuel filters and had to rebuild the carburator in the other car at the time.
i use shell Vpower it works very well on my civic gsr!!! although i need some help my gsr boggs hard sorda like something is plugged but only when i push the gas down ALL THE WAY someone please help me if u got a answer just send me a msg thanks!
i always fill up my turbo coupe with premium from shell.....chevron is good to. never use arco....they r crap....made my car run like shit
