Default the gasoline thread

Do you stick with one gas brand or do you use multiple ones and whats your MPG on each brand (make sure you state which IS you have)

I use Chevron Supreme and Shell V-Power I get about 20 MPG I have IS350.

Shell V-Power

If you get a Shell Plat. Master card (free), you get back 5%.

Since I have seen tankers drive across the street from Arco to Chevron filling both stations from the same truck, I no longer care where I get my gas. I have yet to see non-biased scientific studies comparing the "quality" of the gas from station to station.

Keep in mind the amount of cleaners in the gas will not effect performance (short term). Running carb/injector cleaner every few tanks is as effective as paying the premium for the often more expensive companies.


Anyone got any links to credible sources to refute this?
