favorite gas brand

7136 Views 49 Replies 18 Participants Last post by  blackgti06
I know many people who swear their car runs better on a particular brand of gas. I have yet to notice any real difference in my GTI, and I pretty much get gas at whatever station is nearest me when the refuel now light has been on for 40 miles or so ;)

Anybody have an opinion (that's a stupid question around here), or noticed any differences?

In the States: Mobil. I don't know, with my old Jetta on Mobil 93 it just felt a lot less anemic.

In Canada: Petro-Canada. They add fuel additive to their gas, in the summer Tractrol to keep engine clean and in the winter they have "winter gas" which has something in it to avoid fuel line freezing. Also, I have a credit card thru them that gives me 5.5c/L off and I earn points on all my purchases and bonus points when I fill up with 91 that I can then use on
I actually find the Canadian version of Exxon (Esso/Imperial Oil) to be the absolute worst gas. I'd like to fill up at Shell, but I just don't have a card to get me a fuel discount.

What didn't you like about it, if you don't mind my asking? You called it "the absolute worst gas," so I'm wondering if it caused any adverse reaction to your engine components, a la BP.
I probably wouldn't notice any difference in my new turbo 4 cylinder, but in the old Jetta, Esso gas made it feel more aenimic than usual.
Smite for God-awful spelling/grammar/punctuation. That clusterfuck you call a paragraph was painful to read.
I promise never to read it again.
It's hard to read stuff when your brain has to make that extra effort to comprehend what someone is saying. Oh well, can't blame him. He hauls gas, probably doesn't have any high school.
Are you proud that you know how a question mark works?

You make more money than I do with far less education, I hate you even more now.

oh thalo
dont be jealous. if you had what i had you would be much happier!!!!!!!!
to have your loser ass know. i make approx 250 325 k ayear pal.
my two petercars cost more than your entire whatever you have!!!! no one here asked you for your smart ass remark anyway. i thought i was helpfull in saying what i said!
so before you start trying to put someone down you should have the facts pal..
ill bet you have a hefty note with that gti.... idont
and ya no high school after tenth grade was all about making money pal
and didnt ya ever here of vapor recovery?
theres the punctuation BITCH
Hey, man, take this shit elsewhere. Around here, aside from some good-natured ball-busting, I haven't seen any flaming, and I think it's pretty cool. I also haven't seen people use IM speak and forgo punctuation.
He didn't completely forego punctuation, he did have a question mark in there.

I also agree that gas doesn't all come from the same place. I live in Alberta, oil capital of North America, each major oil company here has their own refineries and each one has their own plots of land up north in the Oil Sands.
I don't doubt that he probably owns his trucking business and grosses up to $300K a year. Probably doesn't know how to read the bottom line on an income statement either.
Whoah, where did you all of a sudden get -31 karma from buddy?
Let's still try to smite him as much as possible.

I think he more deserved to be banned for bad english than for his attitude. I mean seriously, I can tolerate if someone maybe speaks english as a second or third language and posts short succinct replies, but when its long and winding and your brain is forced to compute what the hell it means, that's just painful.
