Wow. I'm the only one that went for Mobil? Seriously? My car ran like balls awesome on Mobil 93. My second choice is Chevron. I'd never use anything else. I used to use Hess, but that became a crappy idea real quick.

Depends on the use ill be giving the car-
For commuting Quick Trip gives me the best mpg, in regular 87oct. - Sentra XE

For spirited driving Shell has the best response, in any grade I usually go for plus 89oct or 91oct depending on the side of the city im in. - NX

For longer trips where I want to clean the engine(very rarely) Super Premium 95oct from the only gas station that sells it around here 7-Eleven. - Any vehicle

I've never used anything else and have never had any issues

I use chevron and shell for the most part because of location to places i go (they are everywhere) but i'll stop at a 76 now an then if the price is right.. for a long trip where i'm not going to be thrashing on the engine i'll use safeway gas, but thats just to save money an like i said i dont have any fun with that gas in the tank.

also i only use 92oct, its the highest we have at the pump locally.

Same here. I thought it was just in my head but when I used to live on the east coast I used Gulf gas and it did seem to last longer then other brands. Glad to see I'm not the only one who noticed .

I see QT's,Hot Spot and Spinx down here in the S.C. but I rather run out of gas before I use any of those.

Gotta love that gulf. In Boston they don't have gulf so I used sunoco.

Chevron and Shell will clean up a dirty carboned up engine (valves and pistons) very quickly.

^^^^ this is true. I started using Chevron after I read that the Big 3 in Detroit all truck in Chevron to test their new vehicles.
