    Gasoline is fungible, i.e., it's the same product except for proprietary additives which amount to a tiny percentage of the total volume. The major oil companies in fact trade stocks of gas between themselves all the time and just toss in their additives. If there is any difference it's minuscule.

    Oh...?

    I thought the topic was about which company was the lesser of two evils in the oil industry. Oh well.

    I use the 10% ethanol blend from BP. For years, 89 octane ethanol blend was the same price as regular 87 octane, but now it's ten cents cheaper than regular.

    If I were still a gear-head, I'd get a turbocharged car and max it out to run on E85, which is around 105 octane.

    Practically forever, I used nothing but Shell. And, I don't know why. One day I woke up and realized that they were charging far more than everyone else. Now, I think it's Arco where I gas up...

    Did you notice that, even in this economic crisis, Shell's profits for 2008 amounted to $31.4 billion ? The Big 3 should be asking THEM for a bail out.

    Get which ever is cheaper. For the most part, gas is gas. But like TexDef07 said, the main differences are whatever additives or "engine cleaners" they mix into it.

    I think this might be a case of marketing hype.

    I go for whatever is cheapest or most convenient. I don't think it really matters where you go for your gas.

    For the quality of gas and paying MAYBE 50 cents total at the pump more, Shell is the answer. Besides, they sponsored ( and still do) the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival after Katrina!!! So, yeah, I'll pay that extra 2 cents a gallon. See you at the Fest this weekendicon_wink.gif

    Oh in that case I think all oil companies that are not Exxon are an improvement.. But I did hear Shell had some dramz with building a pipline across some country in Africa that would have displaced villages and fragile eco systems.. I'm not sure if they went ahead with it.. And maybe i'm mixing stories but I think that countries government was arresting and killing people who protested against Shell.

    But we don't have Chevron in Canada.

    lol. I just had this conversation with my old roommate the other day. Shell. I used Chevron for years, and when I switched to Shell, my car thanked me for it.
