Gasoline - Cleanliness.

Everyone has a different opinion on this and claims that remain unsubstantiated.

Some say that Shell has the cleanest fuel out there - due in part to working with Ferrari to achieve this.

Some say Sunoco has the dirtiest fuel, simply because of lead derivatives in its fuel.

Some say that Petro Canada additives can have a negative impact.

Thoughts?

I really don't see much difference I mentally think Shell V-Power and Sunoco gas runs great. Heck even CT gas is fine.... I have only ever had problems with Petro Canada

you mean you're using a special credit card or just the esso card?
i use octane 91 now, so when i pump, my points are double? like 30 bux is 60 points?

I go to Petro. I only go to other ones when I do not have a choice. But I always avoid the TruValu stations and the like.
I will say this though, I prefer the pumps at shell and sunoco. I have a feeling that the pumps at petro are rigged. Every time I pump the meter will start counting but the gas will take about 3 seconds to actually start flowing, and then like an additional 2 seconds to flow at full speed, whereas the other gas stations are instant. Maybe its just me.

At least its not like in my home country where some crooked gas station owners dilute the gas with water.

So in other words no one knows and they just head for the bright logo that appeals to them best or that has the best rewards program?

Man, the marketing people at gas companies really have us going.

Pretty much, use sunoco for CAA, so membership is reduced.

Same, or whatever is cheapest (whithin viewing distance).....If there is a PetroScam i'll go there because I collect the points, even tho there is nothing worth buying (I have like 10k or something)

Persoanlly I like Petro or Sunoco ... Ive read somewhere that Sunoco has the cleanest gas (possibly due to the 10% ethanol mixture?)
