Default What brand of gas do you use?

I made a very brief effort to search before I'm posting. Apologies if its out there already. I was wondering what your gas preferences are? I'm liking sunoco nowadays. American owned is def priority. I do think its important to stick with a quality brand. So hop on the forum everyone...what do ya think?

Conoco, it's the only station in town that doesn't have ethanol.

Yeah I'm in southern Indiana. Not far from Louisville. I won't support bp either. But yeah there's lots of marathons, not sure about the gas but the station usually dirty...draw your own conclusions. I just always try to get same brand bc I figure its better for my truck since everybody puts in their own additives

I hate to tell you this but all gas stations get their fuel from the same distributers and the only difference is additives mixed in at the gas station itself.
I didn't understand your first sentence at all.

As I understand it most gas (aprox75%) comes from Mid East. Stations do use their own technology to "brand" it. I think most all are probably good, I just think its best to pick one and stay with it. I'm just trying to stick with USA owned company. I think chevron is but there aren't any in southern ind. shell has a USA headquarters but I don't think it's a USA owned company although I believe they have quality gas. Sunoco, for me, is reliable and everywhere.
