    Any just because you buy fuel at a Shell station, it doesn't mean that fuel came from a Shell refinery.
    In California almost any gas station will be fine. Fact is with fuel rewards I get Shell for damn near cheaper than other station in the whole LA county region.

    As far as running 87 goes the factory recommends 91 so 91is what I run.

    Where you notice 87 vs 91 on other cars is usually under heavy load. Then you most likely will get ping. Now on a NA engine thats not good but if only mild you can get away with it.

    On a Turbocharged engine its a little more critical IMO. Plus the amount the ecu retards your timing to manage it does actually take away power.

    Do what you want but 87 in our cars is really not logical for the car. If your going to run 87 go buy a 160 HP NA Focus. You can run those all day long on 87 and turn in excellent mileage.

    Our cars are Performance cars 87 octane is not Performance octane levels.

    You bought a performance car that is designed to run premium fuel. I feel bad for your car. Ford should have a hotline you can call to report such terrible abuse. Your car is going please Daddy this fuel explodes too easy, I need premium so I don't have to cut boost and timing. Somebody help me my Daddy should have bought a Toyota Camry. Somebody get me out of California can you believe they want to stick something up my tailpipe. I just want to run free with 93.

    I remember the Sinclairs as a young kid (MANY moons ago! LOL) as well, and always loved seeing the Bronto logo.
    The ONLY one I've ever seen recently is in Hopewell, N.J., on the road to Princeton.
    This.

    If only the Shell in my town had 93. I run the 93 tune but use Shell 91 because I prefer Shell. We used to have 3 Shells in my town now there is only one.

    It looks like Shell, Chevron, and Costco are the top three. These are probably the most prevalent or cheapest (COSTCO) top tier gas providers in Oregon, other than ARCO. This must be fairly consistent throughout the US. I haven't done much driving east of the Rockies, but I assumed that there would be different major options on that side.
