I've done one.*

sport trac

shell 340 miles to a tank
exxon 400 miles to a tank
chevron 450 miles to a tank

gt stang

shell 260 miles to a tank
exxon 280 miles to a tank
chevron 310 miles to a tank

these are all premium numbers I'm jsut trying to figure out why i'm getting such good gas milieage from chevron and exxon' premium 93 but such milieage from shell v power.

Re: anyone done a gas test???

Interesting road test results. Most companies will buy additional raw gasoline from other refineries if they can't meet demand. They just add their own additives, the raw gasoline is molecularly identical. It's the additives that will affect emissions, carbon buildup, gas mileage etc.....

Re: anyone done a gas test???

....!!! That's very interesting....I always use SAM's Club gas or Race Track (cheapest ones close to me) but I'll give it a try with Chevron.
