What brand of gasoline do you use?
« on: June 16, 2011, 10:02:18 PM »
I live in Hinton but work in Fort Mac so yeah,I put alot of kms on in a year,about 60,000km. So gas mileage is a concern of mine.
At first I would fill up at Fasgas because with thier litre log you can get back 3 cents per litre,not a bad deal.Then once I filled up with Esso and noticed that I could go a little farther on a tank.Tried Petro Can,not bad but not as good as Esso.Tried Tempo fuel and it was crappy just like Fasgas.
I have a 2010 Ford Ranger 4L V6 (no ford jokes pls..lol) and with Esso I use 4 litres less fuel from Hinton to Athabasca than with Fasgas...it all adds up.

Anyone else have a truck (car) that prefers a certain brand of fuel?

I have tried the different octanes and have not found a difference with my truck.  I really havent noticed the difference but will have to pay a little more attention.

You might not notice the difference just driving around town but on a regular long haul you will. ;)

I knew of a guy that was big into motorcycles and he did his own little study with his crotch rocket and found that Shell gas outperformed the others.  Myself I go to Hugh's as I get an extra city discount there so I save a tiny bit more than the regular places.  Safeways sometimes gives you a good discount if you buy groceries there but rip you off on the grocery price.  Superstore has their deal as well which is not a bad way to go either.

I almost always fill up my vehicles and boat up with Canadian tire gas. I get a ton of Canadian tire money and use that for buying fishing gear when they have something I am interested in.

I always fill at UFA and ESSO but that is just because that is what work gives me for fuel cards. I have never noticed a big enough difference in milage out of any of the stations ive filled at. My company trucks usually get pretty much the same number of clicks out of a tank no matter where it was filled. More depends on the driving conditions and the speed I drive. Doesnt take much of a head or tail wind to change your milage allot.
