Since all stations sell a max of 92 octane, and I was wondering if anyone has a preference for the best premium out there.
By best I mean resistance to pinging.

I've heard that Chevron makes the best gas, with Exxon being at the bottom of the list. Unfortunately, everyone here in Richmond sells Texaco and it's hard to do many comparisons.

Back when I had Organic Chem class (89) we actaully tested all the local gasolines for octane and it turned that Arco had the highest
of all the local gasoline samples....

Ironically all of their gas (regular unleaded and Premium unleaded ) was the SAME octane just sold at different prices. - In case anyone is curious this was due to the higher concentration of benzene from the California Oil fields...
