    For the most part, I agree with you. However there are sellers of gas, here at least, that I have experience with first hand that I know have worse gas than others. Whether it's a dilution problem, or a manufacturing problem, I don't know. But I do know what brands to stay away from because of personal experience.

    when i got my vf39'd bugeye (back in the day) dyno'd i had marathon 93 (e10) and dyno'd less than with 100% V-power. could have just been a freshness thing though...

    my 93 Escort GT loves to sip Chevron and chug marathon gas, I can't explain what causes this, though I would be curious to try a blind test...

    The way I understood it is the fuel itself pretty much comes from the same distributor/company/refinery but the individual companies add their own proprietary additive/detergent package.

    Only have 91 here in Ontario, 1 out of every 15 gas stations will carry 94. It says 91 or better is just fine in my owners manual...When I have the chance, I reward it with 94.

    Since it cost me 72 bucks to full up the other day, the rewards will have to come less and less though...lol

    So the manual says 91 for WRX. Most of you seem to be using 93. Is that just because most places don't have 91, or is there an actual benefit to going with 93?

    around here our Sunocos have 91. any disadvantage to using that?

    More detonation-prone.

    Around here, Sunoco is the only station that carries 91/93 (everyone else just has 93).
