    Citgo gas SUCKS

    Just wondering if other people have experienced problems when using this gas... I've filled up twice on it in my stage 2 wrx and both times it caused problems. The car would sometimes cut out for a quick second while cruising and I lost A LOT of power. Everything fixed itself once I filled up on some other fuel and ran a little ways through it. I will NEVER use Citgo again.

    CITGOs are rare in my area but if I do find one and need fuel I definitely use them. Never had an issue.

    thats why I stick to the bigger gas stations and never have any problems, first choice is always chevron, then shell, then 76.. if I can't find one where I'm at I'll just fill up enough to get me to a good gas station.

    I almost exclusively use Shell in my STi. If I can't find a Shell, then BP works fine too.

    I used Citgo in my boat once and it caused it to run on like crazy. If you know anything about an I/O boat, you know that's big trouble for the water pump. I'll never put that crap in anything I own again. I've been using Shell in it since without a problem.

    I only buy Shell in my town. My dad always says it doesn't matter but something just always tells me to just go with the better stuff.....but when i'm traveling I just usually get whatever if I can't get Shell. Cheap insurance (that is if the gas reallly is better )

    thanks for the info, I won't buy Citgo

    94 is overkill. unless you're tuned on it.
    i hope to have a 100+ octane tune over the summer.

    I've never even seen anything over 91 octane for sale.
    definately none at any normal gas stations where I live.

    +1 I am tuned for the 94oct, but before I had the protune I experimented with speedways 93oct and Sunocos 94oct and found i got a little better MPG with the 94oct and about the same performance and both were almost always the same price per gallon.
    But if you have no tune or are running on the 93 maps, 94 may be overkill

    Apparently they have a lot of high octane gas readily available all over the So. Cal. region like in Los Angeles, but I live in a rural mountain region so it's a no go here.

    Damn Prius's lol ugh so ugly.
