    The past few days I've been doing a test on the live stream question videos by making them longer with more questions but no funny pictures to see what you guys preferred. I've decided to keep the same format as before, shorter videos with funny pictures instead of longer ones without the pictures, since I don't have time to do both. So all videos will once again have the pictures, thanks for the input and support!

      Ethonal does raise the octane if anything it lowers it. Lead in gas was for lubrication at the vaive seats now the have hardened seats. You don't get a good quality gas with Ethonal because it has a percentage of water in it. That's why it causes corrosion

    There an older gentleman who talked to me about the gas stations that he goes to and every time he went to different gas station he checked how many miles he got. So people check your milage on every gas station.

      Friend hauled gas to stations from the rack, Exxon uses the least additives, Shell the most, I fill at Shell because you can keep getting 5¢/gallon off by putting your phone number in at the pump, I just use my old phone number every time.

            If the register shows anything more than zero, while would anyone go ahead put gas in the tank? Many of use are old enough to recall that glass sight glass that supposed to be full when pumping start, and full when pumping stops. As far as NJ goes. Government regulations are written by those being regulates. After all, all across the board the USA has governments ran my the merchants.

              I had this experience. I bought some gas at a place. Later, I went back there to buy some food as it had a deli there and the lady told me that a few minutes after I left, the price of gas changed (got cheaper). This was done from a central location electronically and was done because the price the gas station paid for the gas changed.

              They didn't wait for the tank to be pumped completely dry to top it off so they ended up with a little bit of a more expensive batch still left in their big tank when the next batch (slightly cheaper arrived).

              So when the central office determined that the second to last batch of gasoline was sold out which they purchased for that location, they stopped charging a priced based on that second to last batch and started pricing based on the most recent batch (the cheaper batch).

              My point is that don't assume a sudden gas price change in the middle of the day means someone's cheating you.

                I heard from a mechanic, Shell & Exxon are good gas and Valero is "watered down" and that's why Valero is always cheaper

                  There was a gas station near me that got caught with a garden hose running at night into the under ground gas tanks.

                    People in New Jersey don't pump their gas for a reason, it creates jobs. Plus with every station using do it your self check outs, who wants to work for free? Also It is great not having to get out of your nice warm dry car to get gas.

                              the gas in Jersey is cheap as F plus they do it for you! that's a plus in winter.

                                The crazy thing about Jersey is although they don’t let us pump our own gas, the gas is STILL cheaper than neighboring states (NJ, PA etc). Think about that: their paying some kid $12/hr to pump your gas for you and the gas is STILL cheaper!

                                  You can't pump your own gas in Oregon either. I've been told that it's this way because it creates jobs. Pretty crappy jobs , though.

                                      Arco recently lost a HUGE class action lawsuit because they were chiseling via the settings on the pumps. I once filled at an ARCO station and the metered amount was actually greater than the tank's capacity.

                                        I used to be in retail brokerage (sold supply contracts to supermarkets, gas stations, and convenience stores). Chevron was a competitor for one of my clients. The reason they stopped advertising the additive percentage is because nobody cared. They tried to use it as a selling point. With a little research, they discovered it wasn't working and dropped it.

                                                        There is 2 gas stations where I use to live. A mobile and a shell. I always filled up at the mobile. If I filled at the Shell I got crappy fuel mileage. Especially in my 87 f150 I use to have. I put gas in at the Shell to go to the next town I would use a half tank round trip. It's 20 miles one way to the next town. Now I fill up at mobile I would use just under 1/4 tank round trip to the next town. It was the same with the other vehicle I had. Now where I live there is a little store not even a mile from me in the middle of nowhere. Usually they sell there gas cheaper then in town. I get good fuel mileage filling there also.

Years ago I worked for for a company that used a temp service for extra workers to help out .One of the workers was an American Indian who had lived on a reservation in California. At that time gas was $1.35 a gallon. While talking at lunch he asked me what do you think the price of gas is on the reservation. He told me gas there is .35 cents a gallon. I was shocked . That means we were paying $1.00 tax for .35 cent of gas at the pumps.

                                                                              • Edward Frost

Base stock is pure premium, high octane, no water emulsion or clay particulate. Base stock is junk, low octane (67-68), lots of water & clay emulsion. Stations blend both at the pump down to Target Octane. Regular gas is about 80% premium gas and 20% junk. Buy only premium gas. 20 cents more per gallon will save big headaches later.
