If you are Canadian then watch Marketplace on CBC tonight at 9:30 PM

You may find it interesting as the truth will be told about the different gasoline grades and how the public is being mislead by the oil companies.

Shell V-power 95% of the time, or Sunoco if Shell not available or refilling at the track (LRP, NJMP and the Glen have Sunoco pumps).

There's actually been a lot posted on here about this. Gas is gas when it comes from the refineries, but the difference comes with the additive packages used by the various brands to keep things clean. Certain BMWs and other performance cars have had fuel system problems with low-quality gasolines; it's best to stick with gas that has the "Top Tier" designation. Not worth it to save 20-30 cents a gallon in filling up a $70,000 car when it could potentially be damaging to use poor-quality, cheap gas.

Check out the website: http://www.toptiergas.com/

Here is the list of current Top Tier retailers:

USA
76 Stations
Aloha Petroleum
Chevron
Conoco
CountryMark
Entec Stations
Exxon
Hawaii Fueling Network (HFN)
Holiday Stationstores, Inc.
Kwik Trip / Kwik Star
MFA Oil Co.
Mileage Stations
Mobil
Ohana Fuels
Phillips 66
Quik Trip
Rebel Oil
Road Ranger
Severson Oil
Shell
Texaco
Tri-Par Oil Co.
U.S. Oil
