The main reason I use High Octane Gas is because of the flawed procedures of mixing lower octane gas

When it comes to all of cars, I only use the HIGHEST octane gas I do this for one reason and one reason only. The gas mixing procedure is flawed. If you’re mechanic is constantly telling you that you have corrosion build-up, this is primarily because of the cheaper gas you’re pumping into your car.

When you go to a gas station in Canada do you notice that there’s only one type of diesel fuel? There’s also only one type of propane, has it ever occurred to you why on the retail level this is? It’s because the commercial sector is all about their bottom line.

If a cheaper diesel fuel was introduced to the commercial trucking sector as an example, business people would know within a year if the cheaper fuel was costing their company more money in maintenance costs and if it was discovered they’d stop buying it and word would spread throughout the industry.

On the retail level, ignorant consumers, would more than likely turn on their democratically elected governments if it came to their attention that all of these stupid environmental laws were inflating gas prices. Higher octane gas is more expensive, but gas prices are artificially lowered because, on the retail level, gas stations offer a mixed cheaper form of gas.

Now, don’t get me wrong if you’re leasing or renting your NEW car there’s no reason to buy the more expensive car, but if you’re like me and you own your cars, don’t bother with the cheap stuff. My mechanics to date still have no clue why cars run so well. 2 of my cars have over 130,000 miles/210,000km and no problems by me.

Especially when it comes to American and European made cars, many of which have cheaper parts via the labour unions raising the cost to build, do not use cheaper gas if you plan on keeping the car. Even if I leased I’d still buy the highest octane gas, however, that’s because I can afford it. If you lease and you can’t afford the highest octane gas, do what your budget can handle.

What you should never do is buy the highest octane gas one day and the lower octane gas the next, corrosion is corrosion and if your wallet can’t handle the higher octane gas, don’t waste the money buying it at all! Because cleaning as you drive doesn’t mean that it’s going to clean out existing corrosion, the corrosion will still be there until it’s cleaned and the higher octane gas at that point might worsen the corrosion problem.

I’m in Canada and I buy the 94 octane at Petro Canada gas station although Shell claims they have the superior 91 octane, I’ve compared the two and the Petro Canada version for me has been better. With that said Shell has a much better online presentation and explanation of what cheap fuel does to your car. It’s absolutely true, anyone who tells you differently is probably a mechanic who is obligated to talk to customers under the confines of their mechanics license.

The mechanic isn’t lying to you when they say you can use the cheap crappy gas, they have to say that, if they don’t they can be sued, because as I’ve stated if someone as an example leases a car and plans to bring said car back in a 3-4 years while it’s under warranty, said customer shouldn’t feel obligated to buy the more expensive gas.

Canada in many ways is one of the best countries in the world in regards to engineers that come through our colleges and Universities. However, like many other countries, our engineers are burdened by globalist regulations, socialist politicians, and labor unions who prefer consumers to remain ignorant as to how they’re being screwed!

The whole octane debate is dead on arrival, the cheaper stuff is available because politicians want votes and higher octane gas is a lot more expensive. Imagine if you were forced to buy higher octane gas because everyone knew the other stuff was crap? Do you really think people would accept a carbon tax or a Green new deal?

Don’t be a sucker! Don’t be ignorant to the obvious, if you buy cheap gas, do so with the expectation that the computers in your car will eventually go haywire, and your engine and other maintenance-related lights might start blinking in your dashboard every once in a while.

The moment you start mixing gas, there exists no perfect procedure, every single gas station will have a different mixture, some will be better than others and less octane in your gas the more corrosion you should expect, it’s actually common sense when you think about it!


Interesting times ahead!
