Texaco
Usually I have the highest respect for texaco products, but this once blew me away. Sept. 19th about 12:30 a.m. I pulled in to fill up my 2000 fxstd Harley Davidson with hitest. Nine dollars and some change later I was heading home. I got about 3-4 miles when my motor sputtered and died. I pulled over knowing it wasnt an electrical problem. I took it out of gear and tried starting it again. It started and I pulled off making about 50 yds and it died again. Every time it would start but not go a hundred yds. before it died again. After about 6 starts I pulled into the Brannion Stand Shell wondering what the hel was going on. I took off my gas cap stuck my finger in the hole and what I pulled out didnt even smell like gas. I was stuck in the station for almost three hours waiting for help. I eventually drained the gas out of the full tank and replaced it with Shell hi test. Today I went by the station to alert them of my experience and the dude behind the counter said it couldn't be their texaco gas because it is tested every month. Long and short of it, he refused to give me back my money or offer any compensation for my troubles. Caveat Emptor!!
Tips & Advices
Driver can find the cheapest gas prices by using an app to search for the lowest prices in their area.  Some apps such as Gas Guru take note of your location, and provide a list of gas stations nearby, along with the cost of gas currently being sold at each station.
There are things you can do to slightly improve the fuel efficiency of your vehicle. Make sure your car's tires are properly inflated, and treat your engine to regular tune-ups. Check your engine's air filter, since a dirty air filter will compromise fuel economy.
Drivers must shut their engine off before pumping gas because it's illegal to fuel with the engine running, even though this law isn't always aggressively enforced. Pumping gas with the engine running can compromise your safety. When your car's engine is running, it's possible for its catalytic converters to generate heat that could ignite gasoline, and start a fire.
Even though many gas stations have warnings advising you not to use your cell phone while fueling, the chances of cell phones igniting a gasoline vapor fire are extremely remote. However, fires at the gas pump may be caused by static electricity discharge. For safe fueling, it's recommended that you turn off your car's engine and avoid smoking at the pump. Also, you should never re-enter your vehicle while refueling.
Many factors contribute to the lack of uniformity in gas prices. Retailers consider their tax responsibilities when setting gas prices. States place varying taxes on gasoline retailers, and a state with higher taxes will have higher gas prices than a state in which the taxes are lower. Also, if a gas station is located in an especially competitive area, a branded operator may receive wholesale discounts that allow the station to sell gas at a lower price. This is done by brands to keep their gas competitive in tight markets.
