Default How often do you get bad gas (not that kind)

Not talking about after a trip to Taco Bell

It just seems like lately I have been getting bad gas at least once a month. I only fill up a name brand stations. There is one local station that I have been using when I can but I finally got a bad tank there this week. The UTEC is pulling timing in 3rd and 4th gear.

BTW for NOVA guys, the Amoco on Backlick near Five Guys/ Springfield Subaru has screwed me a couple of times so I never get gas there.

From Chevron, quite a bit, which is why I never get gas there anymore.

from 76 I got one tank. All the other 76 in the area were out of 91 that night (a fact I didn't know until later). I just happened to pick the only one in a several mile radius that had 91. I can say with near absolute certainty that it was NOT 91.

I think that between the increased gas prices and the consumer being more price sensitive there is a temptation for gas station owners to sell a lower grade at the discounted price point of a higher grade.

I am as certain as can be (without actually testing it) that the Amoco on Backlick has given me lower grade gas.

I've only gotten one bad tank of gas. It was from what I always considered a reputable Amoco station that has lots of traffic. If my utec didn't flash the CEL under boost, I probably wouldn't have known about it.

Sure enough, I ran the tank low and filled up at a different station. I got into it in 3rd and 4th and didn't get a single CEL flash from the UTEC.
