    I think the manual for all 06+ GM vehicles mention that. Just FYI.

    Kind of what I was getting at is that I dont blindly believe that top tier is the bees knees... A notable omission is Amoco/BP. However, it seems a simple way to immediately eliminate the 'cheap gas' statement when troubleshooting fuel related issues is to say "I only use top tier gas (as recommended in the manual)".

    Took the 2013 SRX in for it's first service. Had Service check for the pinging issue. They looked at all the all the codes, etc., and found nothing. So, I filled up with a tank of Chevron Regular and am watching to see if this helps any. I don't think this will completely solve the problem, but it may help. I was using fuel from Costco and Sams pretty exclusively. I did get 24.5 MPG @ 75 mph on my way back into town, which is the best I've seen.

    Name brand fuels, including the ones you've mentioned above, should be about the same. That's really nonsense IMO. SAMs doesn't have a dedicated oil supply. They buy from the big oil companies. You may find that one brand or even station works a little better for you, or it may be psychological.

    Hello Brian,

    I am sorry to hear that the dealership was unable to find anything relating to the pinging noise that you are experiencing. If you are still concerned about the noise, I would be more than happy to contact the dealership you were working with to speak with them about this. Please feel free to private message us, or send us an email at socialmedia@gm.com if you would like to further discuss this concern. If you choose to email us, please be sure to include “ATTN GREG” in the subject line so that it gets delivered straight to me. Thank you very much for your time.

    Gregory W.
