    About gasoline – here is my understanding from what I have read in the major car magazines [ Motor Trend, Car & Driver]. All the companies; the fuel starts out identical – manufactured to the same standards, the only difference, and it is a minor one, is the additives added such as detergents.

    They said the brand doesn’t matter that much, the most important consideration is WHERE you buy the gas. You want to go to a high volume seller where the fuel gets turned over frequently, that way the gas is fresher, and the gas stations supply tanks are less likely to have a build up of sediment in the system. It is that sediment that causes engine, fuel line, and exhaust system issues.

    -From Jerry Reynolds-

    We had a caller to the National show last week who stumped me by asking if all gasoline was the same. I realized I didn’t really know the answer, and as always, said so. The topic generated a lot of discussion, but I feel this listener had the most offer, to so I wanted to share this:

    Hello Jerry and Kevin,

    Start with love the show, I listen to the podcast every Sunday morning. I drive a 2017 Colorado LT 4 cylinder and love it.

    So listening to the show this weekend a caller had a question on gas quality I think I can help with. I deliver fuel to gas stations for a living and most of my deliveries are to Costco.

    To start, all gas is the same. The difference is the additive added to the base gas. So when I load gas for Costco, I may go to Shell or Chevron and load the same unbranded fuel as the next truck. The difference would be the next truck, if he is loading for a Chevron station, they inject additive as it loads into the truck to make it top tier gas.

    Costco is as good as Chevron or Shell as Costco puts in additives at the station as I deliver the fuel to make it comply with Top Tier standards. Sam’s Club does not do that they are not a Top Tier gas.

    I hope this helps and please, if you have any other questions please ask.

    Ed
