leary of a station?

You ever see a station that has SUPER low prices and wonder what the catch is? There is a station locally that's not a chain and has the lowest diesel in town. Like .50 cheaper than everyone else. Its about 10 miles from the house but on a 30 gal fill up it maybe worth my time. I'm Leary about the quality of fuel though. I've asked around a lot and no one i can find uses or has heard of the place.

What would u do? Fill one tank and see how she does? Filler up and let her eat or run like hell?

Yea theirs one like that in my town but i have heard some stories about motors not running to good after filling up there, and having to ride it out till its gone and put good fuel in it. I never go there and tell people not too either, its a gamble who knows try a little and c what happens.

There was a station in town that was like that and whenever we used it our cars cold started pretty rough. We just go with the tried and true even if its a bit more expensive.

The last time I filled up at a place such as the one you are describing, I had HORRIBLE issues because the fuel was loaded with water. It was so bad that I couldn't drive a mile down the road without having to drain my fuel-water separater.

actually EPA minimum is 40. most stations have about 41 shell averages 47


I as well avoid cheap stations and only go to big chains or a name brand company. I am a manager for a company who dominates any market of gas and fuel sales. i always buy our fuel cause it generally triples the amount of additives added before sale than any other station. NEVER has water and is normally the cheapest in town anyways. ( QuikTrip ) is the company if your curious.

our gas actually is graded by major auto companies and we earn the badge "Top Tier Rated" and we guarantee our gas and diesel 100 percent you dont even need a receipt if the mechanic says your vehicles damage is from the fuel our company pays for it hands down.
