Same here. Shell fuel is top notch

Default Switching Fuel Additive

The name on the station doesn't mater its who running it. The only time I have gotten bad fuel was from a shell.

Any time I use any sort of no name fuel or noticeably cheaper fuel, my mileage and power suffers. Murphy to be exact. A few others too.

Just little update, I'm still on that same tank of fuel because I got some surgery done but I'll be back behind the wheel tomorrow and probably by the weekend she will be empty enough and then I'll run the Howes and hand calculate my MPG.

As far as winter additives I've used the white bottle of power service in Proudhon Bay, Alaska and in the Bakken in ND and never had an issue with gelling.
The only thing that I did as far as prevention was plugging my truck in and I built my own lift pump mount so that it isn't hanging low. Wind chill doesn't affect inanimate objects but it seemed like it made since when I made it

I think you butt dyno is off.

I'm just saying you can get bad fuel anywhere. I look more at the store. If it looks run down I'll got down the road and find a store that looks like the owner cares.
