Old Goat Ninja Premium every tank here. It's $.20 more a gallon where I live for the good stuff, so only a little over $2 per tank using premium vs low grade.

I also only use Chevron. My brother in law used to be a gas tank delivery driver. He says every truck for every company lines up to the same tank to get a load of gas, except Chevron, they have their own line.

I used to have a Mazda Protege (03) and I used cheap no name stations all the time. Engine blew at 60,000 miles. First question my mechanic asked was if I use cheap gas. Yup, excluvely lol. I put a JDM motor in and never used chap gas, got 70,000 miles on that motor (I had a 120 mile round trip daily commute) plus whatever was on it before I got it. Car is still driving around town. I see it all the time (I don't own it anymore).

Every station here in Cali has ethanol, which sucks. I'd love to run pure stuff.

stuff1138 I joined that shell rewards and there's no participating stations anywhere near where I live or work...what a crock...that's off topic though sorry

Juicedz 93 V-PoWA for the win!!! I use it exclusively anymore. I'm part of the shell rewards now too so I get .03 cents off every gallon. Not huge but it makes you think you're getting a deal.

Junk_Poet It has been said before by other people but the driveability between 87 and 91 (I live in CA) really is a huge difference in my MK3. I've ran 91 for the last two tanks and it's crazy how much better the car feels. No more drop in power when starting from a stop with A/C on, car has more linear power throughout the gears, 2MPG increase, and it feels there is more HP.

$4 to $5 more... No brainer there.

Altho Av gas is higher octane dont confuse Av. gas with race fuel , Av gas is for high load low rpm , race fuel is for low to moderate load high rpm and yes there is a difference , Av gas shouldnt be used in a car

Great if your racing, but for a DDer, premium is good.

Fasgas is racing fuel
