Many people say Chevron, but I'm not sure if that's true or not.

I don't think you'll see a real difference between companies. Use the right octane for your vehicle. Other than that, do the best price-wise. Also, don't go to a station that's getting refilled or just got refilled because you might pump some junk in that got stirred up.

From What I noticed from my Ford, Subaru, Volvo, and Mercedes, Shell has the best gas, just make sure you use the right octane as well. I believe your car requires regular unleaded 87 octane.

I used to work for an oil company, and I can tell you that ALL gas comes from the same place, the only difference is the additive. Do note that no matter where you buy gas from, they are required to have some kind of additive in the fuel, although the major brands additives are superior. The best advice I've heard about fuel is to switch brands for a tank-full every 3-4 fill-ups. Each companies additive will leave SOME deposits, but the competitors additive should be different enough that it cleans the left behind deposits. I personally use Chevron, but about once a month I'll stray over to the Shell or 76 station.Also there is no reason to run higher octane then is recommended in your owners manual. You're not giving your car a "treat" by putting a tank full of supreme in it from time to time, so save your money and use the minimum required octane.Hope this helps!
