This Top Tier subject is brought up weekly. All Top Tier posts should be merged together. Gas additives have been in use for 100 years and Top Tier means an extra cent or two at the pump and clean breath for your Car.

I voted Other, because I fill up at Costco. Costco is top tier, and where I am, is the cheapest gas in the area (cheaper than the non-top tier stations). I also get 4% off on fuel using my Costco Citi card, which at these prices ends up being a savings of $0.10 per gallon.

I also fill up at Costco when I am in town (Toledo), but out where I live (farm country), there are 3 Circle Ks, 1 Shell, and about 3 miles down the road there is a Marathon. So for me, its Shell or Costco.

I use a Chevron that is just down the street from Costco. It is about 20 cents more than Costco, but the lines are much shorter. And, I can get up to 20 cents off per gallon if I shop at Safeway. There is usually a 30-60 minute wait at the Costco by my house. That's not worth 10 cents per gallon in my opinion.

I personally have pretty much my whole life bought the cheapest gas I could find. Never really had any problems with it. When I bought my first Cruze in May, I joined here and started reading and now pretty much use Shell gas exclusively.

I filled up at Safeway on 8/31 and amassed an unheard of 15 Gas rewards. You can only use 10 at a time so I saved $12.50 on a fill up. Cleanest non Top Tier gas in town. To think what they did before Top Tier and how much longer engines are lasting these days:uhh:. The Stooges sold Mobiloil Becky, Hazel, and Ethyl in the 40s. Mohawk stations had an additive dial with 7 blends you could mix. It is all marketing and a pinch of detergent.

Gas cars get filled at Sam's Club (usually - Kroger or Meijer on occasion, depending on price - generally Sam's is lowest). The diesel generally gets filled up at Kroger (or Meijer, again, if the pricing is better - it's also closer - but Kroger is on the way home from yoga for my wife).

Buying gas is like buying a lottery ticket, are you feeling lucky? While we may have a good Mobile station here in town, in the next town, wouldn't feed that crap to my worse enemy.

Have a friend in his town swears by Shell, here you will swear at it. Really taking a gamble with ethanol, may be okay one time, next time just buying 80 octane fuel. Wonderful EPA has over 155 different blends of gas and there are oil pipe mix ups.

Never was this way for years, sure is now, are you feeling lucky? And what kind of crack is that tanker guy smoking?

If there were any Phillips 66 in my area I'd use them exclusively. However there are very, very few of them in Michigan. The ones I know of are in the extreme southern parts of the state and when you cross the state line into Indiana there are tons of them.

Gas in Cincinnati is priced so strangely at least where I am @ 10 miles from the City. But if I drive out of the city prices go down. I should have voted other but if I use a Top Tier gas it is typically Shell only bc they offer .10 off for a reward with Kroger(for $100 spent and my wife spends a lot there and the .10 brings the price down to Speedway) typically I will use Speedway or Thornton's sometimes Sunoco. Lots has to do with proximity to my house and ability to get into the stations when I need gas. BP is way out there price wise and very few locations esp for other than 87 octane(which I never use) BP will vary @ .35 per gas grade(depending on location) One I see from the hwy is 2.39(87) 2.69(89) 3.70(93) In Cincinnati we have Shell BP Marathon Sunoco Speedway Thornton's, Sam's Kroger and UDF. The last 6 compete price wise. Shell BP and Marathon don't care.

I prefer Shell, but when their premium is $0.80 more than 87 octane compared to $0.40 for other top tier stations, it's a no go for me. I still fuel up my other car at Shell on 87, but the local BP is where I fill up the Cruze.
