Have a Nice Day? Now What Gas to use?

Hey guys now that Sunoco is no longer offering or soon not to offer at all the 94 octane and made super 91 octane. What gas are you guys going to use that get the least amount of oil from the middle east, won't make you pay extra for that 93 octane like Sunoco does and will fill the need for the 93 octane map for the APs! Just wondering and see what you guys have or will be using.

I think both of those Shell and Exxon Mobile get a lot of their oil from the Middle east. I guess it's a preference just trying to support the Domestic guys or other foreign oil other than Middle east.

That's right quality not quantity and not to sound prejudice and no offense but who knows how much oil bought is going to fund terrorists.

I've heard that Hess is only from South America. I ususally run either Shell 93 (never had a bad tank, and usually see +1-2mpg increase), or Hess gas.

Shell make my car Detonate like all hell.. granted it is probably a crappy tune, BUT it doesnt do it on other fuels. I like sunoco, bp, exxon, amoco, i do not use other gas co's just because i dont trust their QC. im sure it all comes from the same place, shell adds that vpower crap and im pretty sure thats why my car hates it.

at all this seriously.

I've seen the oil tankers fill up the exxon/mobil/shell on one side of the street... and the ghetto no-name RIGHT across from it with the same truck. So Ic ould give 2 ****s. If you're so scared, carry a bottle of Torco with you. It wouldn't hurt, I have a nice 6 pack of it in my garage for bad times, which has happened... once in the past 2 years. Torco 6 pack > beer 6 pack

All gas in the United States comes from the same pipelines (except for Chevron or Hess, I can't remember which). The only differences between Shell, Exxon, Mobil, etc. are the additives put into the gas at the station (like V-Power, etc.)

All the manufacturers do drill for oil and ship it into the US, but since they all use the same pipeline all the gas is dilluted together.

I've used BP, Mobil, Sunoco, and Shell... and never had a problem with any.

I know BP fuels now contain 10% ethanol... do any of the other manufacturers do the same??

I am still using Sunoco, I have a friend that works there as an engineer. They set a higher standard than most for the quality of their fuel.
Once in a while i'll throw in a few gallons of GT100.

Uhhh so long as the station doesn't put water in their tankers to make more money, gas is gas.... But I mainly fill up at my gas station, but if I can't it doesn't really bother me. Oh yeah it's a no big name station and we get the same tanker as a gulf across the street, a bp down the road and a sunoco ahead of us. Gas is gas guys- the mentality that there's a difference by name brand is just your mind playing tricks kinda like that 'performance part' that won't add power but cause you think it will you'll feel like it did cause that's what you're expecting.


Oh yeah incase some people may not know- when you see a station with a brand name it doesn't always mean that company owns the place. Alot of times it's still privately owned(just like those no name stations) but with a contract with said company to renovate and fancy the station up for XX years(typically 10-20) in agreeance that they order only said brand gas and XX% money goes to them as well. Once that time limits up they can purchase and resell any gas they want. Typically the stuff we no name brand places get is what they end up ordering cause it's cheaper. What that is is the excess gas from multiple said brand names has left behind all mixed and sold for a cheaper price cause it's no longer a pure brand name. So for all you fanboys of certain brands- you may not be getting what you think you are, but rest assured it doesn't mean squat anyway.

They all the same.

Dont all the oil companies buy and sell each others gas ? I read they do this to save on transporting. If company "A" has a storage tank of 91 octane on the west coast and company "B" is short 91 there, they just make a deal. They are all the same.

I don't like Exxon's business practices either. They were once almost a monopoly that personally controlled about 90% of the oil reserves and personally drove the price of oil up in the years past.


Then we have the Exxon Valdez that a drunk captain crashed and rather than trying to clean the mess up, Exxon tried to push it out of the public eye and hide the incident until called upon. Not a stand up move in the least.

As my father taught me, they won't get my money unless its a last resort.
