Best Gas in Canada?

Best Gas in Canada?

Postby TomsGT4 » Thu Apr 14, 2005 2:50 pm

I was using premium Esso, but my g/f & another guy I know say they are getting bad regular grade gas from them recently.
Not sure if I want to trust Esso anymore.

I've been reading the thread about the Chevron 100 Octane gas in the states.
I don't think we have anything close to that here.
Didn't Shell or Sunoco or Esso have 93 Octane gas at one point & then discontinue it?
Where do guys fill up?

I have always used Sunoco Ultra (94 octane). Unless you're in the middle of nowhere it should be available on every Sunoco gas station

Thanks
Is that the only gas over 91 Octane in Canada?

I run 92 octane. You can get 92 from husky/mohawk if u like the "enviro blend", I cant think off the top of my head what other places have 92. Well i know petrocan and Esso does here in Saskatchewan.

I don't like Esso or Shell.
I usually go with Mohawk/Husky 94 Octane. Seems to give me better mileage. Chevron is my next choice.

Only Chevron 94 octane goes in my car. I don't think there is anywhere else in Vernon that even sells 94 octane...

I think living in Windsor (ontario) you're stuck with Sunoco!
Pioneer gas stations used to have 93 oct but stopped selling it about 6months ago. Sunoco has good fuel specialy if you are boosting high.
BTW. They add up to 10% methanol to it

Husky/Mowhawk does 94 here.

We don't have Chevron or Sonoco stations in Alberta. I work across the street from Chevron's canadian head office though, which kind of p's me off. :shoots:

Rick, on husky/mowhawk gas...

its part ethanol...which delivers less energy/unit than normal gas. so you will make a bit more power on chevron. that said, gas mileage may vary. just something to note. hell, i use husky/mowhawk b.c thats my only choice. ;)

Esso had 92 until recently...then they changed to 91. Everywhere else here has always had 91. :(

I wish I could find 100 pump gas. That would rock. Oh well. There's always leaded race gas or a Toluene mix. :D
