Default What type of Gas do you use?

Hey CL,

I was just wondering what kind of gas you all use.

Since I got my IS250 (3 months ago) I have been using mostly 91 at 7-11/Petro

I have tried Shell 91 before but I found it super expensive and I do not have Air Miles(Probably will get it sooner or later..)

I recently filled it with 94 from PetroCanada.

I am wondering what is the best type of gas to use for my vehicle.

here is some food for thought.

though you may be purchasing 94octane, carefuly where you buy it from. it may contain 0 ethanol as most gas stations state, however most gas stations do have the ability to switch the pumps if the 94 tank is running low. also, the area you buy it from is important too. say its in an area where most ppl will ONLY be buying the lower octane gas, that means the 94 octane gas station tank is gas that is fairly old. old gas isnt any better.

from where i work (a different car manufactuer), the engines are more sensitive to ethanol. so far, esso 91/92 seems ok, shell 91/92 has no ethanol as advertised. im not too sure with petro canada and i believe in the vancouver lower mainland area, they got rid of the 94 octane all together.


personally, i use shell 91/92

I heard Shell gas is supposed to give better gas mileage for Lexus cars.

I get Esso 91 or Petro if I can't find an Esso. I get worse overall mileage on Shell 91 than Esso.

I get better city mileage with shell but better highway mileage with Esso.

no statistics no care, talk is just talk
there are so many factors that come into play with mileage you can't just say "I get better here than there"
theoretically vpower will give more mileage because there's more energy and less (no) ethanol
