    I would say honestly, if I get better mileage with any gas, it's with the generic gas I buy right around the corner at Martin Eagle Oil Company. Although they mix their own gas there.. and it's the only place that sells either e85 or natural gas for at least 30 miles around.

    I sometimes feel the car hesitate on some fill ups, but it could be shell gas or any other kind and do that.

    I would love to see what a built motor could do running CLNG... that stuff has an insane octane rating. I wonder if anyone has tried to do that yet?

    I like Shell solely because they brought this commercial into our world...

    YouTube - Shell - Ferrari commercial

    Otherwise, it's all the same. I usually buy the cheapest station I can find on the GasBuddy app.

    Are you referring to Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) or Liquified Natural Gas (LNG)? They're not the same thing For passenger vehicles, you're going to want to use CNG since LNG requires refrigeration. CNG has an octane rating of 130. I work in the CNG industry, so I know a thing or two about it, and even wrote a proposal to build a GTR race car powered by CNG:
