I've seen this before. I'm not too sure if this is valid, or a marketing ploy. I just fill up at the cheapest gas station. Right now I'm using HESS since I have a HESS card that is 10% off purchases for the 1st 3 months and 5% after. After this period is over, I'm planning on switching to another Chase card that offers 5% from all gas stations and supermakets, and 1% off everything else.wingspan said:

-I've always disliked Chevron, but after reading up on Tier 1 gasoline protocol I have to recommend Chevron, 76 and Shell. I've been using Chevron exclusively for the last 8 months and I've noticed a consistent increase of about 1mpg in my M5.

That quote is true, but there is a lot of R&D that goes into the individual additives, and the ratio of additive to gas can be as much as 2 to 1 from top tier gas to others.chuck92103 said:"What'Often just a quart of detergent added to an 8,000-gallon tanker truck. "
I too, only use Shell V-POWER. Too bad though we dont have any Chevron stations here in N Jerseyhupps said:I only use Shell for 2 reasons:
1 - told by mechanics that engines they've worked on whose owners use Shell are cleaner

As an aside - if you have Texaco stations you should start seeing singage that says "Texaco with Techron" soon, if not already. Chevron owns the marketing rights to Texaco, and in the south they have already started advertising that Texaco now has Techron.
