its really just a matter of opinion, personally i hate shell gas and wont buy it, some of the worst mileage with shell gas for me, but others have had other results, all depends on who you talk to, what other brands are available to them, and their location.

your gonna get every opinion out there for this one

i won't make a difference that you can feel just by driving the car. unless you used a different octane than usual.

as for the clean valves like in the commercial... i don't know

i get the same thing... everytime i use shell gas, i get worse gas mileage than i do anywhere else... i normally just run 93 octane at either WAWA or SHEETz... shell's gas is the most expensive down this way so i dont ever go to one unless my gas light comes on and i cant get to another station..

I don't buy Shell they aren't around me... I actually buy from a place called "PitStop" which has 100% gas no ethanol... YAY! MUCH better gas mileage
