    Majority of older and public (taxi) drivers still think that fuels without the "UNLEADED" brand name are still leaded, hence they still choose to pay for the slightly more expensive variant, you're not alone...

    Honestly, the gas stations should stick a note or something to indicate the fuel type to educate those who aren't as familiar as some of us are when it comes to fuel types.

    Shell's mid-tier "Super" gasoline is still being treated as the "leaded" variant by most cabbies that I talk to hehe.

    No more leaded pump gasoline available commercially since April 2000....

    Lahat ng fuels sold ngayon commercially are unleaded. Iba-iba lang ng octane rating and names for their brand's marketing hype..

    ...Kung gusto mo ng leaded (w/c is harmful for everybody, by the way), racing fuels are still leaded, pati AV gasoline leaded pa rin... They are sold by barrels or sa trucks sa MIA/NAIA...

    What about those "REGULAR" gasoline used for 2-stroke motorcycles? They mix a so-called 2T oil with it. Unleaded or leaded?

    any comment sa performance ng mga gaso? mas ok ba ung hatak nung mas mahal na gaso? thanks
    Use the octane rating recommended by the manufacturer, using gas with higher octane than needed will just waste your money because there is no real performance gain. A lot of the advantages that you read about are advertising and marketing only. A Shell 91 octane gas is the same as Petron 91 octane gas with minor differences in percentages of detergents used. Any FC differences is more dependent on driving conditions and the drivers involved rather than the brand of fuel used. The only way there could be differences is if they make a summer and winter mix in the Philippines which I highly doubt since there is no winter there.

    Unleaded din ang regular gasoline. They mix 2T oil kasi 2-stroke pa ang motorcycle nila. Designed talaga and 2T na sunugin ang oil unlike 4-stroke engines

    According to my brother in law na engineer sa refinery, jet fuel is kerosene with a little anti-freezing elements lang ah.

    performance of each gasoline varies from each car. so if i were you, try a variant first and compare the performance of your car.

    imho, almost all of the fuels sold in the market today can be put inside your car (except perhaps for the regular fuel, diesel and kerosene). all of them have octane ratings of 91 RON and above.

    start with the cheapest one first.
