Default Gas Types in Canada

So I just ordered my new 2013 STi and am picking it up soon. I was wondering what gas stations and octanes to look out for in Canada. Im mainly in Fort McMurray Alberta but will be making drives to Edmonton/Calgary and out west to Vancouver. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

Petro-Can, Shell, and Chevron are the top-tier fuel suppliers around here, that's what BMW recommends anyways. I go to petro with all my vehicles, never a problem.

Run 93, that's what your car calls for...

I suggest reading the owners manual once you pick it up.

Petro-Canada here in Ontario serves up a tasty variety of 94 octane. Used to be Sunoco until they were converted for brand consistency.

Every Chevron I've seen in BC has had 94. The problem is that it can be really tough to find a Chevron outside of major population centres. If you are driving through the BC interior and you see a Chevron and you have less then 3/4 of a tank, top up. It might be the last one you see in a while.

BC is the only place in Canada that I've seen a Chevron station. I could be wrong though.

I heard that the husky stations have 94 octane gas as well. Not in bc though, the husky here stopped selling 94 around 2010

I'm using Husky/Mohawk 94 octane, it's the highest octane fuel in Manitoba. Next best option out here would be Shell 91.

Use the Maple 91 Eh.


Seriously though. The user's manual states you should use 91 octane, so use a minumum of 91 octane from a reputable gas station. Chevron, Petro-Canada, Esso and Shell fall under the top tier gasoline retailers in Canada.
