Is one gas station better than another for gasoline?
« on: May 29, 2014, 03:07:48 pm »
I see ad all the time saying one station has better gasoline than the others. Do you find this to be true or is it all pretty much the same. I have a friend that swears if she uses Chevron gas it lasts longer. What do you think?

I have been hearing about this for years and all i know is when we would go those no name gas stations that people only went to because they were in the middle of nowhere our gas mileage would suffer. Nowadays with the newer cars you can see how many miles you can go on a tank of gas from a specific place.. that's what we would do. Empty the tank and fill'er up

My dad used to tell me that off brand gas station is like getting the bottom of the barrel.

I use to have in the distant past a form of loyalty to Shell stations, but as prices continued to rise this thought process changed.  Nowadays, I tend to target warehouse clubs for the majority of my gas needs (if they have one) as they tend to be cheaper.  I am open to using off-brand gas to a degree too.

I think they are all rip-offs.  I usually get my gas at Kroger and get extra $$ off buy buying groceries there.
Have a wonderful day!

They are all the same.  You can't see what's going in your tank.  I just buy the lowest price gas, unless your car requires a more expensive type of gas.

It depends on how new is ur car. If it's an older car it doesn't matter what kind of gas or which gas station  u go to.

I have heard this before, but I don't know it to be true. I personally like Speedway b/c if you have their rewards card, you earn points for gift cards and other free stuff. So, it's not a quality thing, but a reward thing!

I have heard this and used to think it wasn't true until last week and now I am not so sure. My husband and I were on our way home and stopped to get gas. Our truck was running perfectly. After we pumped the gas our truck all of a sudden would not start. The tow driver we called said they were getting lots of calls this past month where this had happened. Now honestly who knows, it could have just been my bad luck. But we was something we deff thought about.

I'm not sure. I haven't noticed a difference in quality. ???

Probably not...it's all pretty much the same stuff, just branded differently and from various locations

My husband thinks so but I am more loyal to the stations that I get a discount for my gas.
Have a wonderful day!

We usually use Kwik Trip or Kwik Star. We have a debit card from them that gets us 3 cents off each gallon of gas plus 10% cash back on anything (except alcohol and tobacco products) bought in the store. Plus they guarantee their gas, if our mechanic says a problem is caused by the gas we used, Kwik Trip  pays the bill.

I always thought the all gas was the same but recently I started going to a gas station near me and have found that for some reason the gas seems to last longer in my car, so even if the gas is a few cents more expensive at that station, I will still buy from them.  :)
