It says on the gas door what you 'should' be putting in if you don't know.

... I'm 99% sure they all require 91 octane.

I put 91 shell (and 91 Sunoco when I'm in the US)

Is Sunoco (US) and Petro-Canada (Canada) gas the same?

FYI - my Acura gets CEL sometimes when filled with petro canada regular.

I've been reading/hearing that Shell 91 is highly rated. Ultra 94 has ethanol now which on paper would give you less mpg.

The other day I filled up at Pioneer with their premium. Price wise it's great. We'll see how it will affect my mpg if any.

I use Ultramar 91. But I also only fill up on Thursdays which in turn is usually only around 1.32$ mark. I haven't paid over 1.35$ for premium since the new year Doesn't seem to bother when I was using shell or husky or any other brand.
