What gas do you guys use?

I've always used shell (91) and when I mix it I use 76 race gas (100)

What gas does everyone else use I use shell because of the "V-power" but chevron says there gas cleans up your motor what do you guys think? Or use?

I use Chevron exclusively, but I am willing to try something different if it will work better in my car.

Here in AZ, Chevron gas is the best we have. Shell is a second or 3rd option for me.

Chevron for mine only. I will drive out of my way for Chevron and keeping the car on a steady diet will eliminate issues down the road such as hiccups or drive-ability

I personally only use Shell V-power 91 here in all my car (that require 91). Other available gaz is 91 with additives and addition of ethanol to make it 94 octane (but its not regulated) at petro-canada. Always ha better result and mileage with shell !

Shell 93 or Chevron 93. Usually more Shell, but only because there are more stations nearby.

I was using 93 Kroger and 93 Sam's Club at first, but discovered the car runs much better and gets better mileage on the Shell/Chevron. In fact, the in-town imrovement in mileage more than makes up for the extra cost between the discount places and Shell/Chevron.
