What Brand Gas are you using ?

My plan is always to run high-test gas. While different states have different octanes available and local regulated additives , I was wondering what brands of
Gasoline other 04/05 GTO owners were running ? I have always run Amoco White (ultimate) but once BP took over they removed the clear viewer on the handle - so I might change to another 93 octane . I hear Chevron w/ Tech. is the top gasoline now...

Any thoughts ??

Haven't noticed a big difference between brands out here in Northern California, including the stuff pumped by independents. Did run into a bad batch of Shell a long time ago, though.

I avoid going to places like El Cheapo gas. I heard some bad stuff about Shell once also, but think they have that worked out. That was in California also.

Xcommuter, do you plan on heading to the track in G-ville with yours? that's where I typically run mine at. If your interested I let you know when I'm heading that way.

fergyflyer , Mount Dora is a lovely part of the state , but isn't the Super Retirement Complex around Lady Lake adding alot of near blind drivers ?

Yes I plan on hitting Friday test/tunes once I get some miles on...

Last I remember - $25 for unlimited runs ... And their is a way to avoid the
water pit...

I know you;ve read the FL traffic law changes that started today. Several changes are just tax collection devices. The one I love is the exhaust tone
must be original or ticket. Still trying to get the State to provide a 2005
summary...

Here in Cali, we don't get 93. 91 is as high-test as it gets.

Like the a couple of the guys above, I shy away from "no-name" stations, but other than that I've no brand preference...though due to their strateigic locations I use either Shell or Arco /BP a lot...like to the tune of 50+ gal/week.
