Interesting how few of those top tier names are readily available in the Seattle area. With all the mergers and rebrandings, Shell and Chevron are still somewhat common. But most of the gas is sold at independent or small regional chain stations, or convenience stores, supermarkets or Costco up here. I make an effort to go out of my way and pay a few cents more a gallon to fill up at a Chevron whenever possible, just because of the Techron additive package. I have read a lot on the merits of Techron and motorcycles.
Another pet peeve of mine is that ethanol is added to all auto gas produced by the refineries in Washington up by Anacortes. Some of the small regional chains here say they get ethanol-free gas shipped in from the refineries in the Rocky Mountain states, but I have my doubts as to the consistency of supplies from there. The local stations listed on the pure gas website still have the ethanol stickers on their pumps, and the person behind the counter cannot tell you if ethanol-free gas is in their tanks or not.
