the thing that makes you go

i know different gas stations have different gas mixes but i was wondering which gas stations have the highest quality of premium gas for our cars. ive heard to never go to quick trip and that shell bp and mobile gas stations are the best.

I fill up where ever I am and need gas. I've never noticed any issues.

I make sure I go to the newest station available with high volume. New tanks = no leaks or water in gas. Volume = freshest gas.

Call your local race track and ask which stations sell the racing fuel.

I know in Kellyfornia that all gas stations suppose to comply with the same mixtures because of our emissions. So all gas stations will be the same.

Now matter which gas station I pull into when I need gas, I put the highest grade in the GTO and usually the lowest or medium grade in the Maxima. I have never had a problem with "bad" gas so I just pump it and keep on rolling.
