    Ok I have to ask you guys this. I know some of you drive newer vehicles daily. Do you still have brand loyalty? Example my old roomate would only run Chevron in his cars and trucks. I always notice Chevron, Shell, 76 etc like .08-.10 more expensive than the Citgo AM/PM whatever across the street, but their is a line of cars in the expensive station parking lot:confused: :confused: I have none anymore my brand loyalty stopped at $1.99:rolleyes: What about everybody else?

    Nope, none here really, as long as it's the cheapest, I get it. :)

    AM/PM back home is always the cheapest actual gas, so it's where I go. All four of my immediate family get gas there, and always have, not one complaint, ever.

    There are still people that run premium gas in vehicles that call for regular too. :)

    Cheapest price for me. My dad stuck with Sohio (Standard Oil's brand in OH) until they were bought by BP. He worked at this station in Independence, OH.

    That is his '69 Z-28 in front, on the street. The picture was shot from the steeps of St Michal's Church.

    Chevron and Petro seem to be the cheapest here, so that's normally what i use. Plus, they're close to my house.

But no matter what brand they are this month I go there cuz they have good gas priced the same as everyone else in town, Free coffee, Cold beer, and the best cinnamon buns in town.

    I generally fill up with Sinclair........ But that's because I get a 5 cent discount if I fill up at work :)

    Otherwise, I go wherever I pull in at... Or cheapest if I have time and want to drive around comparing prices while burning the very fuel that I'm trying to get a good deal on...

    Usually the Shell station in town, but that's cause they've usually got good prices and my truck seems to like their fuel better (might be the seat-of-the-pants dyno talking) and it's the only station in town where I don't have to prepay. Not to mention all the ladies that work there know me and are funny as hell.

    I go to the aafes here on post. They stay about .07 cheaper than the guys off post, plus they are the same price all over post. With 31 gallons of tank, that .07 actually makes a difference.
