Which Brand Do You Use?

Weird Question but i usually use Shell gas because its a brand name company and the one by my house is cheaper than most that ive seen, this morning i paid 2.93 for 91oct. and this station usually is 5 cents at least cheaper than Chevron, 76, etc. Have you seen better performance, longer gas milage with other brands?

Thanx...

I live close to all of the stations listed in the poll. I use 76 mainly because it's usually the most reasonable. I'm told it's better for the car to use the same gas consistently; so I stick with that brand. Whether the fuel I'm pumping is, in fact, blended consistently I do not know. I have no choice but to trust the station.

Shell V-Power is all I've had in my car (since I took delivery).
I'm assuming that the dealer's complimentary tank was from BP.

Typically Shell or BP for me. Sometimes Sonoco but not too much lately. These are also the 3 gas cards I have. Which is why I stick to them. Sometimes Giant Eagle if I have enough cents off to make it worth while.
