I think that's going to depend heavily on every person's history and personal opinion.krazyrich21 said:This may seem like a stupid question...but i dont think it has been touched upon...Does anybody know if it makes any difference what brand of gas you use? I always use at least 91 octane, but does it matter whether i use sunoco, mobil, shell, etc??
You are correct - the single hose design means you get some of whatever the previous person bougth (which is probably regular). I did read before, that the total volume of "old gas" from the last fillup is quite small, maybe one liter.saito said:Speaking of which...could someone please explain this to me:
I fill up at Sunoco and use the 91 octane. The pump is one of those where there's one hose coming out of the pump and you have to push the button to choose the grade of gas you want.
Since there's only one hose, it seems to me this is a little bit like waiting for the hot water to come out of the tap: you have to run all the cold out first and wait for the hot to get to the tap from the water heater. In the same way, the hose is going to be filled with the cheap gas from the last guy until the 91 gets from the tank up through the hose to the nozzle. Since the tanks are buried and the hose is pretty long, it seems like you must be paying premium price for at least a gallon of cheap gas.
Am I wrong? Enlighten me.
