When I had my tuned WRX STI my experiences and mileage (no pun intended) varied drastically based on source/octane.

My preferences were;

-Petro Canada 94 (I REALLY miss this being an option!)
-Chevron 94

I ran US Chevron 92 countless times but never noticed a difference between this and Canadian 94 so I find it very interesting that so many people in this thread do.

Mileage was comparable and performance was nearly identical.

I HATED Husky 94. It was AWFUL....

Not only did I genuinely take a 15-20% hit in fuel economy (I did the math on this) but it felt like I had an extra 500lbs in the car with me based on power delivery, etc...

For the bike I prefer :

-Chevron 94
-Shell 91
-Petro Canada 91

Husky 94 is garbage. Makes my dads 03 cobra run like shit compared to the very first tank of Petro Canada 94. Car stopped bogging and cutting out at 4000 rpm and going through 02 sensors every few months.. sucks trying to get any o2 sensors for it.

So for a new car like bmw x1, does it really matter which gas station I go to for 92 especially in the states? For example: is Shell 92 better than 92 found in a no name gas station that I found in bellingham? Also how about superstore 92 vs chevron 92 vs shell 92?

Not sure if anyone noticed, but for some reason, Chevron 94 was really good back in March /April. I was getting my tuner to redo a 94+methanol tune and I was able to run about the same boost/timing as on my 94 + 20% E85 tune.

Now it seems Chev 94 is back to its usual crappy self. My last full tank had pretty bad knock in the upper boost/timing ranges. I tried 2 half tanks from different stations in Vancouver and Richmond and both had the same negative results.

Yes I noticed 100%. I got a new tune on my focus and on chevron 94 it was adding up to 4 of timing advance on WOT 4th gear pulls. Now all through May (even trying different chevron stations) it's retarding up to 2 timing on the same pull. I'm glad someone else has noticed as I'm kinda pissed

I talked to other speed3 folks also currently getting tuned by Stratified and they're seeing the same results with the current 94 that is available.

Since the new E85 place is now open on Saturdays, I may just run 5L of E85, which should be like 94 E10 and not require a dedicated E85 tune and require that I run an E85 blend all the time. I stopped running an E85 blend becasue refueling and mixing gas was such a hassle.

I filled with Chev 94 last week in Pitt Meadows and noticed that my STI pulled its own timing-- had this happen before, and immediately knew it was the shit-tastic gas.
I'm now boosting at wastegate 10psi instead of the usual 17.8psi. The car is a stock STI, and it seems to love Shell 91 over the Chevron 94...

My gas light just came on. Suggestions where to fill up in Richmond? Tuned for 93, but don't want to run chevron 94 on this next tank.
