i want to find out what brand of gas is better for our cars. i know we need to use gas of a certain octane or higher, but does anyone have any suggestions as to which brand of gas is better? shell, chevron, texaco, bp, etc etc.. obviously stay away from the really cheap ones..

I use 93 octane. the 89 octane makes my car a little sluggish. If you have an automatic, you may not noticee.

1. BP
2. Exxon
3. Shell

Wawa 87 octane.

Before the peanut gallery chimes in, let me point out that I get better fuel mileage and have more miles on my car than 95% of the forum members. Interpret that as you may.

Chevron Premium or Texaco Premium only. BTW, they are the same as Chevron bought Texaco 3 years ago. :str8pimpi

BTW, the Top Tier gas additive package specs were jointly developed by GM, BMW and several Japanese car companies. If BMW sez it's the correct additive package, then it must be good.

i used 93 in VA and loved it, but now in Cali and use 91 on NAVY base, still runs the same really no difference, i think there gas is Citgo last time i checked. What is also good is "Lucas Gas (Injector) Additive" once a month the keep those fuel injectors clean.....
