FS Fast Stop - midgrade is cheaper than regular that and its a farmer-run organization.

I stick with Mobile or BP stations. Once I got bad gas from a Marathon years back, so I stay clear of them.

Default gas

gasoline stations are like underware. You have to decide what is the best fit for your
car as long as there is no known defect in the gas.

"As part of an agreement allowing the Chevron-Texaco merger, Shell acquired Texaco'* refining and marketing interests. "

So does this mean that Shell supplies the gas to Chevron-Texaco too?

Never been disappointed with Kwik Trip yet. Otherwise I've used Mobil and Texaco without any bad effects. I've known a few people that have got bad gas from some Holiday and Super America stations, so I stay away from them.

Someone once said to never pump gas when the tanker is filling up the stations tanks, as it disturbs all the crap inside there and it'* possible to get that into your car.

I usually use Kwik Trip or Texaco, but since the last time the Kwik Trip pump was screwed up and sprayed gas all over my car and then charged me for it. . . I don't use the one on Madison anymore.

The weird part was, the pump wasn't even started yet and it just started pumping gas without the handle held down either. . . Faulty gas pumps.
