I generally get better than 29... with the current season and with your conditions I'd estimate 32-33 to be par for the course. And that'* with normal driving and a definite lack of maintenance on my part. Pussyfooting/Hypermiling would only mean better

I use Esso exclusively...

Speedway, its the cheapest most of the time. And you get points to get stuff with I've never really looked if any stations don't have ethanol.

Or sometimes Costco. They dont have high prices. But its a bit out of the way so most of the time the fuel spent driving there costs more than the savings.

You guys are lucky that your gas stations don't have put any ethanol in your gas. Around my area, every gas station has at least 10% ethanol.

I ALWAYS use Shell V-Power 93 or Sunoco Ultra 94, nothing else.

I had to use Speedway 91 octane one time in a pinch, and it caused me to get KR, I swear it was just 89 with octane booster dumped in the underground tank. BP has also caused problems, half the time the gas smelled weak (stale).
