    BPs 92 octane, Marathons 93, Swifty's 91, are the big three that I use.

    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.

    :werd: for both.

    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.

    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!

    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.
