The ethanol long term is bad for our cars. I know they all say it is okay but teh alcohol dries seals and can dmamge our cats. To much water in the exhaust.

I know in Calgary there is a Sunoco that sells high octane gas but I think we are SOL unless we get a barrel of race gas.

Thx all. I'll stick with the Shell Vpower and give the Esso a try, there is a new one a couple blocks from home.
