Don't floor it, clean filters, use cruise control, speed limit, don't use shell or BP fuel.

Same question. That's all I have easy access to and don't have any problems with it.

Some people have personal preferences on gas. Some gas stations are just crooked and leave a bad taste in their mouth. I had a gas station that I went to that had so much water in the tanks that I was literally spewing five or six ounces out of the tail pipe every time I fired up the car. That was at a marathon.

Shell and BP are fine here.

Must be just my area then. Some BP stations had dirty fuel, water, crap like that. Didn't care much for it.

I'm not sure if all shell fuel is like this, but there are 3 gas stations close together here, Shell, 7-11, and Liberty. For some reason, the tank full of shell fuel always seems to empty quicker then if I filled up at 7-11.

Never could figure it out why I got more miles to the tank with 7-11 then I did with Shell. And that's with almost the same speed/distance traveled, and weight.. Fuel additives?

I would worry more about that all if it wasn't winter.

I was getting 300 to a tank, mostly city, didn't think it was too bad. Averages about 25 mpg.

Mine recently dropped, but I have filled up with Shell the last couple times. Maybe I need to switch back to Diamond Fuel Stations and see if it goes back up...

What is everyone getting to a gallon?

I'd be getting 0 miles if I were you. I couldn't bring myself to drive an Impala if I had a G35 sitting there too. Laughing

Winter gas has killed my MPG. In the summer I easily see 400 a tank without trying hard. Now in my Jeep, I'm lucky as hell if I get 130 in a half tank and that SOB's got a 20gal tank. Rolling Eyes
