Default What Gasoline and Oil do you use?

The current Oil, and gas I use is Mobil 1 10w-30, and the Gas I always fill up with Shell V-Power.

I've been hearing alot of ranting about how bad Shell gas is, and I wanted some opinions on what everyone thinks would be the best Fuel to use. If you've had problems with Shell gas, share it, as I'm very curious (and worried) about what the best gas is to use in my car. Thanks.

Okay, for those of us who care about what we feed our cars, I've heard that Amoco/bp is pretty good. I used to use Conoco until all the station here that were that switched to Shell. So now I'm going to use the Amoco/bp fuel. Some here have observed better gas mileage, too.

BP/Amoco or Mobil premium fuel only!

I don't recall what was used in the last oil change since I just got the car, but I think it has Castrol Synthetic.
