Question Where do you normally get gas?

For the 2.5RS, where do you normally get your gas and at what octane?

87 at the cheapest place I can find. The car does not run differently regarding brand as far as I can tell.

Unocal 76 lately. They've been the cheapest. And since I don't feel a real benefit or more power from running high octane, but didn't want to run the cheapest gas, I go right down the middle at 89 octane.

on the corner of sunrise blvd and coloma rd. Cheap Arco gas. I haven't noticed any difference either in the other brands apart from price.

87 from wherever I happen to be when I'm running low.

Just remember folks, 87 octane does not equate to lower quality.

Here's the Octane FAQ

Check out 6.13 Can higher octane fuels give me more power?

I heard that some peole are starting a campaign concerning who they buy their gas from. There are stores (conoco, citgo, etc.) that don't get their oil from countries in the middle east. I gues they get it ftom the states, venezuela, mexico, etc.) I don't have any gripe with middle eastern people, but we nkow what kind of shams their governments are.

anyone know anything about this?
