I looked at the list above and wondered why Chevron (US) and 76 Stations (US) weren't on the list. I see that copy/paste function merged them together. Here's an unmerged list: USA
Hawaii Fueling Network (HFN)
Holiday Stationstores, Inc.
Kwik Trip / Kwik Star
MFA Oil Co.
Tri-Par Oil Co.
I've been running Shell from the day I brought my Buell home in 2007. They are the closest station to me as have OK pricing. Plus I have a card from them and get bonus bucks from Kroger at the Shell station.
Good to know it might help keep the bikes & car running better longer.
I don't use top-tier (unless travelling), rather I am quite lucky that a local gas station chain has ethanol-free gas. I use that all the time - figure no ethanol is better than ethanol gas from a top-tier station.
There's absolutely ZERO need for 93 octane in the Versys. You're only wasting money ;/
Some engines are designed with the need for higher octane.....usually high end vehicles, etc, but the V is not one of them. Higher octane does not equal cleaner gas.
Theres a Mobil & Chevron a block away from us and a 76 station down the road. Usually use one of those but since my ride out to see my brother out in Calimexia i put Shell in the Versys and it ran like a totally different bike. So gas up at that station on the way home bike ran better and milage was better. So i put Shell in the Infiniti last week and the car runs much better. The Shell stations are not as close to get to but i'm sticking with Shell for now on.
