Best fuel station

Do you guys notice a difference in brands of fuel?

If so, who stinks, who is good for your truck?

I notice that while Sunoco seems to be the cheapest, my truck doesn't run as well on it as the BP I go to sometimes. Makes a little difference in MPG too..



Thoughts/results on your trucks?

Back when I was running a big truck over the road, I noticed that Flyin J fuel seemed to run better with better mileage than any others did.

I usually get diesel from Sheetz (I dont know where there gas is from) around here or Mobil, I have noticed that BP from our local station gets about 3mpg worse than any of the others

Hess all the way. Smokes like a fog machien, but never had a problem with the truck as far as injectors go. When I go upstate, there is no Hess and I really see a difference. Mileage go down about 1.5. I will stay with Hess.

If you are in WI Kwik Trip fuel sucks. but its about the only thing in my area, since they are based here. I noticed a 2.5 mpg gain, on my trip this weekend when i got to use another brand of fuel

I've had water in my fuel twice after filling up at BP so I don't go there anymore. I usually go to Pilot or Flying-J because they're about the only places to get diesel around here.
