In order... I try to stay with:

1) Shell
2) Chevron
3) BP
4) Exxon/Mobile

In other words, stay w/the name brand stations - they typically maintain higher QC standards.

I fill up with Shell 99% of the time. The times I fill up w/Exxon/Mobile my MPG's always seem to drop a point or so perhaps indicating a lower cetane fuel.
