too many V-Power signs at the station by me. They must have 20 signs for an 8 pump station.
That, and for some reason, they laugh at me when I hand them my BP card ;)

I've never seen it or heard of it until recently, can anyone say Chevron rip off? :rolleyes: IMO the two best gasoline brands I've use are Chevron and BP, I'd say Shell comes in a close third. Although Shell gas is almost always higher priced than anything else. I may just try some of this V-Power gas, hopefully they'll have it in 92 here in Omaha.

I just returned from a family vacation to Minnesota, Tennessee and back to Virginia. I saw lots of Shell V power signs over the 3500 miles on our trip. It is ONLY available in the "Super" variety.

However, my Subies have preferred Texaco gasolines. Back in '95 I saw a bill board saying "Give us 5 tanks." By the third tank the engine stopped pinging on regular so ever since I use Texaco mid-grade exclusively.

Around Tidewater area Texaco is very competitively priced, Citgo and Crown are almost always cheaper. And between Crown and Citgo, Crown performed better in my past cars.

marketing

It's all marketing ! just like CHevron/Texaco/76 ... Bottom line 92 octane is still 92 octane!!! and you just pay them or someone else. Get some octane boost 108!!! or AV gas ! And to complain about cost is absurd ! We have the cheapest gas in the world ...Even if it's $2.50plus a gallon! :rolleyes:

I wanted to revive this thread to say that over the holidays, while back in my hometown in Illinois, I filled up twice with 93 octane V-Power fuel. I will say that my Outback ran better on that stuff than any other fuel I've ever used, to include Chevron 93 and BP 92 & 93.

My mileage was great and performance was certainly better, I may have to get rid of my BP card and get a Shell card. I guess times are changing in the gasoline world, or at least in my gasoline dreams.

I've been wondering about this subject and am glad to see the tread started back up.

I too have been trying out different fuels and have found that my sub runs and feels a lot better with V-Power. Maybe it's my imagination but it seems that power is more constant.
