It really makes no difference as most gas comes from only a few refiners. So it's really all the same anyway regardless of brand. Or have they got you fooled into paying more for a brand name...

And to answer the question, whichever one is the cheapest is my fav...

Ditto! Actually, anything is OK other than that Arco crap. I just like using my debit card at Chevron.

I ususally use Sunoco, Amoco or Mobil. My car runs better with the Sunoco or Amoco. Has anyone noticed that the car seems a lot quicker when the tank is full?

I thought cars were lighter with the tank near empty because of the weight of a full tank. I think i've noticed this too, either that or i was just imagining it..

A near-empty tank may make your car considerably lighter, however, it also can result in fuel starvation for the engine. In particular, if you're cornering or accelerating hard the gas will be sloshing around in your tank, and, if there ain't much gas there to begin with, the chances are that not much gas is going to make it to your engine.

Uh, it WOULD be quicker downhill...'cause it's heavier.
