How about a roll call of Lower Mainland locations so we have a better sense of where we all are.

My profile says Vancouver, but I'm in Surrey (160 and Fraser/Fleetwood area)

Curious where you all gas up?

After talking to Jonny at RPI about this, he and Marcel of HPA both agree that even Canadian Shell 91 is better than Chevron 94. Even George Smooth agrees on Shell > Chevron idea with regards to JB1 logs.

I fill up with Shell 92 at Blaine since I live so close.

I've heard that too from many people in the tuning community here and swtiched from Chevron 94 to Shell 91. My MKV GTI had an APR Stage 2+ 93oct tune that ran way smoother with less hesitation on Shell 91 compared to Chev 94. I ran Chev 94 exclusively for about 6 years on my APR 93 tune then Shell 91 on the same tune for about 2.5 years. My MK7.5 has only gotten Shell and will for the foreseeable future.

Glad to know, thanks!

I do wish we had Petro 94 to try in BC. John at Unitronic exclusively uses that.
