mobil was my gas of choice years ago, until they jumped in bed with the very evil exxon corp, in which i have boycotted for a very long time now. http://www.lieffcabraser.com/wbh_exxart.htm shell is my choice by far than any other, but price will trump every time.

So I am gathering that the cheapest + an injector cleaner additive, mostly techron is the choice of most.

thanks.

I will probably keep going to Shell. I just hope I dont try to fill it up with diesel. Although the fuel filler orifice looked quite small on this new gasser.

(p.s. political statements are pretty easily ignored)
