    Top Tier Gasoline Retailers - new ones added

    Looks like I dont have to forage for a Shell or Texaco dealer anymore.
    I do try and only use Top Tier retailers and its been slim pickings on the east coast and where I live(NJ/SC). Shell and Texaco(major retailers) are not all that common and usually require a few miles or more from home to find one.

    I just checked the Top Tier website and see that Exxon and Mobil have been added. Exxon is widely available in the east and although Mobil is gone from NJ, it is pretty common elsewhere.

    Exxon and Mobil are the same company, they just use different names geographically.

    I though gas was just like oil, all the same. The best always being the cheapest. LOL

    just feeling a little sarcastic..

    Yeah, but my Shell Mastercard earns 5% cash rebate on Shell gasoline purchases. At today's prices, that's a couple of bucks saved per fillup...lol

    My old Italian Grandfather used to say, "Pasta is Pasta." Meaning you can put it in any shape you want, but it is still pasta. Tastes the same and does the job. My view is that gasoline is the same. In fact, my old business used to be very close to a large fuel depot and it was not uncommon to see several different trucks with different brands all lined up to get the same fuel. So....in my view, "Pasta is Pasta" and I have never had any problem with different brands in the more than 50 years I have been driving. The CTS runs great on Costco gas.

    I love Costco gas; it's like .20 cheaper than just about any place else. And now I can buy regular instead of premium

    I'm a Top Tier user and about 99% of my gas purchases since 2005 have been from Shell and Chevron stations. It's nice to see some new brands added to the list.

    Bottom line? More detergent additives.

    From the Top Tier website. http://www.toptiergas.com/

    "TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline is the premier standard for gasoline performance. Six of the world's top automakers, BMW, General Motors, Honda, Toyota, Volkswagen and Audi recognize that the current EPA minimum detergent requirements do not go far enough to ensure optimal engine performance.

    Since the minimum additive performance standards were first established by EPA in 1995, most gasoline marketers have actually reduced the concentration level of detergent additive in their gasoline by up to 50%. As a result, the ability of a vehicle to maintain stringent Tier 2 emission standards have been hampered, leading to engine deposits which can have a big impact on in-use emissions and driver satisfaction.

    These automakers have raised the bar. TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline help drivers avoid lower quality gasoline which can leave deposits on critical engine parts, which reduces engine performance. That's something both drivers and automakers want to avoid."

    Yeah, different truck brands filling at the same terminal (but the additive package can vary by brand); a non top-tier can be just as good as a non toptier (but you can't tell unless labeled as toptier). "You pays your money and you takes your chances"

    I only drive by Valero, Gulf and Lukoil. 99% of the time I fill up at Gulf to help the local economy. Isn't Lukoil essentially Exxon/Mobil?

    For me with the addition of Exxon/Mobil, I can again use my Speedpass for gas purchases. Speedpass only works with Exxon/Mobil. As for Lukoil - there are from Russia.
