Just wondering where everyone fuels up. My family has always used chevron and my dealer does also. I've been fueling up at stinker sinclair though (regular unleaded with 10% ethanol) I like that it's american gas and not middle eastern. The only thing that worries me though is whether its as good for my engine/car as chevron or other gas I'm told american gas is inferior (has more sulfur?) and can wear the engine more.

Usually wherever it is the cheapest, which is often Wawa, a convenience store chain headquartered in Pennsylvania. Sunday, Jan. 28, I topped off the tank at an Exxon station, $1.989 a gallon, in Salisbury, MD.

If we had Sunoco around these parts -- I'd use that. I used Sunoco only when I lived in Maryland/Virginia. Now I use BP whenever I can. I get the best mileage/performance with them based on my own tests and beliefs. I've also asked around here in the car club locally and they said that the Tom Thumbs [Citgo] had "bad gas" for a while and it turned people off. I don't want any shit running in my lines, so I stick with one.

What do you mean by "American gas". All gas sold in the US has to meet the same specs. But it all comes from the same place. Basically the gas comes out of the pipe and goes to the different blending stations, where each gas company puts in their own additives and/or ethanol. But the raw gas is all the same, it's a mix of American, Middle east and all the other oils.

Depending on the local arragements, it may be even more similar. Where my parents live, they found out that Chevron is the only one who brings in their own unique gas. Everything else in town comes from the exact same truck.

Used Shell for years, and then the Fusion and my wife's Windstar recently started pinging on acceleration. We switched to BP and it went away.

BOZ your bitchin about your MPG at 1.98 a gallon? I'm paying at least 2.20! I noticed my gas cap has the BP logo on it but we don't have any of those here. All of our gas comes through utah and there is currently an investigation into prices. HOpefully it goes down soon.

Typically BP or Sunoco. Depends on which is closest or more convenient.

I'm not picky. Anywhere they have gas works for me.
