Shell, especially from Jackson Oil.

Jackson Oil Shell's have the cleanest tanks and nozzles.

Their fuel doesn't compare to regular Shell stations.

I already use shell as my preferred premium octane brand. How can I tell if they use Jackson oil? Is it a regional thing? I'm in the new England area

I tend to use Rutter's where I am from since My truck gets about 1 mpg better from them vs the other local outfits.

It depends where you live. Around Chicago, most places that sell diesel have 1 or 2 pumps for diesel, surrounded by gas pumps, on a corner, with no room to turn around, and cars zipping in and out. One truck waiting to get in can mean a 20 minute wait for fuel.

It's like that here in maine as well. Pumps are off on a corner AND uncovered. Unless I'm on a toll road at a service station. Those are nice
