Any 91+ octane that lacks that ethanol garbage...(on average gives 15-20% better gas mileage than city gas)

City gasoline (93 octane, with 10% ethanol) makes my wallet hurt.

Top Tier Detergent Gasoline

TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline is the premier standard for gasoline performance. Six of the world's top automakers, BMW, General Motors, Honda, Toyota, Volkswagen and Audi recognize that the current EPA minimum detergent requirements do not go far enough to ensure optimal engine performance.

Since the minimum additive performance standards were first established by EPA in 1995, most gasoline marketers have actually reduced the concentration level of detergent additive in their gasoline by up to 50%. As a result, the ability of a vehicle to maintain stringent Tier 2 emission standards have been hampered, leading to engine deposits which can have a big impact on in-use emissions and driver satisfaction.

These automakers have raised the bar. TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline help drivers avoid lower quality gasoline which can leave deposits on critical engine parts, which reduces engine performance. That’s something both drivers and automakers want to avoid.


TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline Retailers

Gasoline retailers must meet the high TOP TIER standards with all grades of gasoline to be approved by the automakers as providing TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline.

In addition, all gasoline outlets carrying the brand of the approved retailer must meet the TOP TIER standards.

Additional gasoline retailers are added to the TOP TIER list as they meet the standards. The retailers known to be on the TOP TIER list are shown below.

TOP TIER Gasoline Retailers:

QuikTrip
Chevron
Texaco
MFA Oil Co.
Conoco
Phillips 66
76
Entec Stations
Shell
The Somerset Refinery, Inc.
Kwik Trip / Kwik Star
Aloha Petroleum
Tri-Par Oil Co.
Turkey Hill Minit Markets
Mileage Stations
Chevron Canada
Shell Canada
Petro-Canada
Sunoco Canada

personally, I prefer Chevron/Texaco gas with TECHRON.

Chevron and Shell will keep the engine and fuel system the cleanest, but, for maximum MPG, driving in a non-agressive manner, consolidating your trips, keeping tire pressures where recommended, limiting A/C compressor use, avoiding hilly areas when possible, and cleaning out unnecessary weight from the trunk will go a whole lot further towards stretching your fuel dollars than merely switching gas brands.

I usually only use BP Premium 93, cheapest in my area out of the Major gas brands and doesn't feel any different than the others ...

Default Shell wins with Priuses

Over at the Prius land http://priuschat.com/forums/fuel-eco...mpg-shell.html owners who diligently track their detailed gas mileage on Excel spredsheets seem to observe that Shell gives them the most miles per gallon.

It's all the same....same fuel made in the same refineries, pumped from the same central filling station, often delivered in the same trucks. Perception=reality, if the marketing tells you their brand is better, then it is. Hogwash.

we all know that, the point is the additives are different. THAT'S what makes matters.
