Hey all..I did a search for this and nothing came up, except for some posts on the different octane ratings between N America and the EU...

Where I live, we have Texaco, Shell, Exxon Mobile as well as a smattering of BP stations....there are other smaller brands that I am not familiar with...does one brand of fuel top the other?? I see commercials from Shell stating that by using their gas, you reduce engine build up. Yet when I put Chevron gas in I see things like "approved by BMW, Porsche, etc"......

Opinions, please???

Many thanks,

Thanks to you both....funny, I was thinking good thoughts of both Chevron and Shell....I never use Texaco and only rarely use Exxon (still mad over the Exxon Valdez, I guess)

Cheers,

Umm....

Cheers,
Chevron bought Texaco and the 2 companies merged; they are now the same company. 'Same gas.
