Given that there are many to choose from I just wanted to know why people choose the brand they do. Is it the marketing? Reputation? Price? I will always stick to Chevron or 76 in all my cars only because it is readily available in where I live. It is either that or Costco, but I've tried Costco brand gas and it seemed sluggish for my vehicles. Shell Nitrogen anyone? I dare not try...

Get mine at Sam's Club because it is the cheapest. The Sam's Club here sells Mobile (I asked them what brand it is).

I usually get my gas at Citgo or Quickcheck but I have noticed that most of the gas stations in my area get a delivery from the same tank truck that has no writing on it and a bright yellow cab. I think all the regular fuels are all the same at all my local stations and the only branded fuels are mid or high grade.

I go to AM/PM because it is one block from my house and is the cheapest.

I stick with Shell but many I think are the same. I've seen the same gas truck go to a Safeway gas station then a few miles down the road went to Shell. The Safeway gas was $.05 cheaper plus if you are a member you save an additional $.03!

I simply swing by Sam's Club or the nearby Kroger's; at times Chevron up the street will be lower as well. My friend and I tease how fast gas goes into our engines, and straight out, since both our vehicles average below 19mpg. So I run Regular 87 octane on my HEMI. Performance does not seem to be affected at all.

I use Shell V-Power (93 octane) only on the BMW. At least I can get near 30mpg on the freeway...unlike the XK.

I tend to stick to Shell and Cheveron because I notice my gas mileage tends to be a bit better then buying Costco, or grocery store gas. Besides its litterly only $1 or 2 more then the cheap gas per tank.

WaWa in the XK and Costco in my neon. They're both the cheapest for the grade in the area.

Speedway, because it it the closest. On the road Marathon, Shell, BP, or Mobil. I will use Costco if gas goes really high.

Costco 75% of the time. Arco any other time. They're all the same anyway except for additives. I'll give my Hemi XK a shot of Techroline (sp?) once in a while.

Whatever station I'm closest to when the gauge hits half a tank unless it's Citgo. I wouldn't buy Citgo if it were .25 a gal. I refuse to support that whacko president and his hatred for the USA.
