I have never filled up at a gas station that had a tanker there; I'm well aware of the issues that causes. That doesn't mean I haven't filled up 2 minutes after the tanker left (and didn't see them), however. Maybe I've just been unlucky with my timing at those places, maybe not. I just know my car has not liked some of the gas there, and won't buy from them in the future. If I pay a little extra, no big deal.Originally Posted by teflon_jones

Different brand gas stations may use the same base fuel but they mix their own additives in.
Fuel 'goes off' over time and fresh fuel can produce more power so use a busy gas station to guarantee a fresh supply.
To make those bleating about paying $3.50+ per gallon feel better, over here (NZ) we pay $6US per US sized gallon.
In the UK they pay $8.50 a gallon.
