Jeep gets what ever 87 I find cheap, and the Eagle gets the local Non ethanol 87 octane.

I usually get it from Kroger since it is cheapest, but if its out of my way then just wherever really.

My dad always told me to not get gas when you see the tanker truck at the station, because you could get sediments which are stirred up. Anyone else do the same thing?

I used to run only 87, and the cheapest crap.

But now I always use Kroger (I usually have about $.30/gallon) b/c its shell gasoline now.

I also only run 89. The car just seems to run smoother on it

I would run 87 and fuel up at Pilot. If I could get it to run on methane, then my mileage would be out of this world, but feel sorry for the poor folks behind me

Of course if I do not think I will be able to make it to Pilot, I get enough fuel in town to get to pilot. I am not scared of the fuel that is in town, it is just that Pilot is closer to the Highway / Future Interstate..

Kroger uses BP gas, they struck a deal with shell to offer 10 cents a gallon off. i can't speak for all kroger stores in all markets, but here in north central indiana i've seen the same trucks delivering to kroger and BP.

That's funny because there is a BP just down the road from my local Kroger, and it is always so much more expensive. I guess the brand just helps to make some people feel warm and fuzzy inside.
