Default Gas

Give me some opinions on what brand of gas is used most. I use Sunoco 93. Every Saturday and Sunday this station I go to runs a sale. Sometimes the middle and the 93 grade are one price. Other weekends 93 and 94 are the same price. Sometimes I use Shell. Can't get better then 15 or 16 MPG out of either.

I use whoever is cheapest and with my foot on it I'm still getting about 20mpg.

at 16 I'd be changing the o2 or looking for something.

Edit...93 octane

I Don't use no-name gas stations. even though they are the cheapest.
I love to find a Sunoco or some other main name across the street from a
No-Name station because they will have to compete in prices
