And for the record, I did the same test in back to back tanks in my M3. The Shell 91 consistently averaged around 50km more per tank than Sunoco 94.
yea i realize that but I still ended up getting about 25 more kilometers out of the sunoco 94....i run shell 91 whenever I can. It has proven to be the most cost effective fuel for my car.
