Poll: What Gas station and Octane you use for your M3?

Just trying to get an idea of what everyone has used in the past or using. Please do post any particular good or bad experiences if you can. I am fairly new to Canada and mostly I see 91 or 94 and don't see 93 as an option.

I see Shell getting a lot of votes. Is there something particularly good about it?

It is considered a top tier gas and reportedly has lower ethanol content.

Great feedback from everyone, thank you! I am glad to know that 91 works fine for most.

Shell 91. Contains very minimal traces of ethanol as opposed to other brands, including Husky 94 which is meant to be the top-tier gas in Canada. Heck I'd use Shell 89 over most other gas stations 91 octane.

I'm in Montreal/Mont tremblant area for the next week and I'm seeking this mythical 93-94 octane rated gas????
Where the eff is it hiding? I've already visited 1 x SUNOCO and 1 x Esso both with 91 ....

The grass is not always greener, or is it?
Who's going to be the first to help me liberate my abused gas tank?

This is odd because most of the Petro Canada's I have been to have 94 Octane.

Your E46 M3 will do best with Shell 91. I am running Shell 91 in my E46 M3 S/C and get amazing mileage and less ethanol was the main issue for me, plus airmiles too!
