Best Gas in Canada?

Postby Guest » Thu Apr 28, 2005 6:53 am

I tried a tank of that Mohawk 94 octane in my AllTrac and it idled like crap and was very hard to start... swiched back to Esso 91 and all was well!

94 = harder to ignite than 91

Odd though, I've never had that problem!

I've always used Pioneer 91, only because i like the bonus bucks and i commute an hour a day in my alltrac and the cheaper the gas for me the better. :wink:

shell sucks. many friends have had some scary experiences with their fuels (using an additive to evaporate water when they found they had horrible power and watching the guage go down and down)
chevron is the ONLY teir 1 supplier in canada. that says something. in the okanagan youre using the shittiest gas in the world unless your running 94 from chevron. the others all come from the same place where they flow crude -----------> and refined <-------------- without cleaning the pipe. this causes the deposits to be cleaned by the refined fuel.
subsequentally the okanagan has a very high mortality rate for fuel pumps and filters. many dealers/shops actually stock the pumps here.

I agree with "Guest" about the Okanagan having crappy gas. I've read it in the newspapers even. The old Pontiac I used to drive has gone through numerous fuel pumps...partly due to the number of km on the car, but a lot is to do with the gas (cheapest grade of gas all the time for that car!). My Mom has had recent fuel pump issues in her car...day after changing out the fuel filter, the fuel pump goes in her car (and the km aren't even that high on the car). Needless to say, my GT Four only gets Chevron!

...you lucky bc people, we dont have chevron around edmonton for some reason...i can get 94 octane from a husky/mohawk, but like others say, its the tree-hugging hippie gas....
