    There's a Citgo station right down the road from my house, so I often times fill up there. Otherwise, I try to find a Hess. There aren't too many Sunocos in my area, but if I'm less than 3/4 tank, I'll stop (I hardly ever dip below 1/2 tank).

    True, technology is getting good. On discover channel's Futurecar show, they showed the Opel turbo diesel that with a motor less than 2.0liters did sub 4 second 0-60 and topped out at 160+ mph.

    I tend to pick stations on price primarily. However, a good station should be appreciated. For example, there's a station near my work that offers funnels (paper, for topping off oil) and towelettes free to customers, plus they have a coffee machine that grinds and brews each cup fresh on demand and a clean restroom. That's a good station. Rare these days though.

    I agree that the majority of California is pretty pansy in itself, but i'm reppin Tuolumne County and it's really an interesting place. lol I KNOW Alaska is pretty hardcore but my town is pretty close.

    I do it at home, and once in a blue moon on the road when I fill up at this particular station I'll splurge ($1,50 for 24oz fresh ground and brewed -- a "bargain" when compared to yuppie coffee shops but highway robbery when considering the materials cost less than 10 cents, the majority of cost being in the cup itself).

    For "cheaper" fuel (not inexpensive but at least not as much a some stations) try supermarkets with club card savings and/or discount retailers like Costco if you're a member (not worth joining just for the fuel IMO). Again, I've not come across any quality differences and frankly, if the most technologically advanced nation in the world cannot guarantee uniform fuel quality what's the world come to? I buy according to price (unless I'm making a "statement" and those cannot be discussed on this forum).

    EDIT: Costco also hase reasonably priced automotive items including oil and tyres, and batteries at competitive prices too.

    Ya, I make my coffee at home. But road trips require a little gas station coffee. lol

    Living in a rural mountain town I have no large supermarket or club stations. just a couple big name ones and a bunch of mom n pop type stations.

    I do admit to buying gas and what not at costco on my trips to the city.

    I get mine from Valero outside of LAFB... stopped at a chevron a couple weeks ago and my mpg dropped, no different driving, just the gas... won't go back to that one. Base gas is good too, but I don't like AAFES so yeah...
