Yep, i personally watched what happened to my old nx1600's motor using Arco, Diamond Shamrock and other cheap fuels in a matter of 10k miles. Nasty buildup on the intake valves and pistons. Then started using only Chevron and the valves and pistons were spotless in a matter of about 5000 miles of using it. Using a bore scope to look down in the cylinders and at the valves. Crazy stuff. Never cheap out on the fuel unless you absolutely have no choice. Pay that extra 3-5 cents per gallon for the better stuff. Its worth it.

BTW Chevron and Texaco are one and the same. They merged quite a while ago. So either is good. Texaco before the merger....Crap!

Chevrons got Techron, its what engines crave.

Believe it or not, Costco and Kroger gas has been proven to be cleaner due to them being forced to change the filters every other day. That being said, I used to use Shell Ultimate, BP, or Chevron.

My favorites are Shell.. Then chevron and finally mobil.. If none of them are around ill use 76

hmm i see most of you are in the East that choose shell ... are there chevrons over there ?

and i uses ARCO one time , i started the engine and the thing fucked my engine up! think the mechanic said something about compression of the pistons. i was covered though because i had just gotten a engine rebuild.
