Hey guys/gals,

What’s the consensus on 91 from the various brands in the GTA? I have the following nearby:
Costco
Shell
Esso
Husky
Petro
Pioneer

I personally hit up Petro or the safeway by my place. Shell would be my next choice. I always understood husky had ethanol in all their fuels. But I could be wrong.

If OP can. GTA is close enough to the border and, if he/she had the option, I’d suggest to take advantage of that benefit.

They have better gas than us.

That said, John@Unitronic recommends Petro 94 which we don’t get here (Vancouver).
I see. Was under the impression that gas in Ontario was better quality.

My Uni Stage 1 tune definitely runs better on Shell 92 from Washington vs anything else in Vancouver.

Thank you for the comments. So far I've tried Costco 91 in the GTA and currently have Sunoco 93 from the US (was in the US yesterday). Not sure if I'll notice any marginal differences so if you have any means of validation using OBDeleven, please let me know. I'll go by seat of the pants feel for now.

At least Costco is top tier!

I’ve always been a Shell user since my 2001 Bullitt Mustang, but would swap with Chevron sometimes when I’d gas up at home.

When I got my Nexus 10 years ago, I’ve been using Shell 92 (Blaine, WA) exclusively for my old Malone tuned Mk5 Rabbit and Eurodyne tuned Mk7 GTI, and now current JB1 Mk7 R.

You prolly won’t notice anything with the butt dyno, but not sure if OBD11 can log it.

Are tuned or plan to?
