    Was that even English? I heard of excuses, but I think that one just took the cake. I can see if he used diesel and jacked up his car, but come on now. Some people are retarded.

    I have been using Costco 93 gas about 99% of the time since I got my rex. I used Sunoco 94 a few times and noticed 0 difference. Costco gas is 15-30 cents/gallon cheaper than the rest and saves me about $5+ each fill up! If you do the math thats $500+/year!!! I may be missing something, but whats the difference between 93 octane at costco and 93 octane somewhere else?

    Dat pic is teh funnay!!

    SOUTHPAW - There is a difference between the mixtures of gasoline from brand to brand. All the oil companies that produce gasoline have a different mixture of getting to that octane rating. Some are better than others. As far as Costco goes, they *probably* get bids from the oil companies and go with the cheaper. I could be wrong though. I know this method is used by Wawa super stores. I learned this the hard way. I too thought 93 was 93 no matter where you got it from but my car detonated on the dyno with that cheap Wawa gas.

    over in CA (also where the rsx guy is from) our highest octane (aside from race gas) is 91. 76 gas seems to be the most consistent as far as quality/performance goes.

    I work for an environmental engineering firm and I get to see a lot of info in regards to gasoline because they (gas stations) are one of the biggest polluters!! I definitely agree with you that 76 is a good consistant gas. The only others that a real good are Chevron and Sunoco.

    Shell/Texaco/BP are good gasoline's, but I would say they are 2nd tier to the above.

    That is pretty funny. 2003 WRX + mods and he wanted to kick his ass cause the car is ugly? Hey, at least my car has some sort of unique style, its not a reskinned FWD civic 'aiight?

    Yeah, its called no torque. Ever. But especially not under 5500 rpm. TT supra would own him unless it wasn't racing.

    HEY! I resent that! It was A/C, and yes I did 'lose'. I could have caught up, but didn't want the embarrassment of it all. I also don't like slipping the clutch at high RPMs..., so the A/C compressor caught me good!

    About this Costco gas, - now that's just plain funny.
