Has the car passed its running in period or not?? If yes, was the run in period performed in an "easy" (under 4.000rpm in all cases) way??

If yes, then, do you put gas at one service station, or from one brand of gas, or do you use stations randomly?

I have found that the super unleaded or minimum premium unleaded petrol that stations have varies significantly in quality and cleanness.

I dont know the brands there in the Us, so I cannot comment more on that, sorry. Ask around, and you'll get the answer you need.

Ever since I own my car, I have only used chevron and shell. But there is one time I did a research on the 2 brand of has, lots of people told me chevron is better. So I have used chevron ever since.
