    sa akin naman, pinakapino ang takbo ng oto sa shell. dun sa dalawang major players, medyo shakey ang engine.

    pero imho, to each his own yan.... may mga nakausap din ako na hindi maganda ang takbo ng engine nila sa shell, pero sa caltex.

    actually, pare-pareho lang naman yan. minsan nga nagpapalitan pa nang mga stocks yan e. pero for me, ok yung techron nang caltex- mura pa. meron na bang e10 ang shell? pwede kaya yun sa mga stock engines?

    i have tried caltex and petron. i noticed na meron caltex station na maganda ang hatak meron namang tumotope. I use this sa revo gas ko. revo 1.8 gas engine requires 95 octane pag 93 lang tumutope. Even if caltex gold (w/c is 95octane) ang nilagay ko me chance na tumope din. so di na ako nagpapalagay dun sa gas station na yon. mukang me halo.

    after 5 years i sold my revo and change to innova. i still use the caltex gold but after a while i tried yung xcs ng petron. you can really feel the surge. but i noticed then na sa ibang petron di rin ganon kalakas ang hatak.

    my conclusion. depende sa gas station. it doesn't matter kung petron or caltex. stick to the station na walang halo yung gasolina nila!

    i'm using Petron XCS now (95RON)

    mahal ang Shell V Power compare with the 2 - Caltex Gold and Petron XCS

    mas ramdam ko yung hatak sa XCS and tie-up kasi sa bpi ang petron. :D

    Not sure kung may pinakamaganda sa kanila specifically.

    Ito kasi formula ko: Php300 na Petron Extra Unleaded and Php200.00 Shell VPower. Magandang-maganda ang takbo ng sasakyan.

    IMO, ganito kasi yun: masyadong mahina ang hatak pag pure unleaded; pag pure VPower naman, ayaw ko kasi killing me softly ang dating sa sasakyan.

    And ewan ko lang kung guni-guni ko lang pero mas mataas mileage ko sa combination na nabanggit ko sa taas.

    dati, i use to fill a tank full of blaze. yun talaga ang grabe sa hatak. you get more smile-age per liter. kaya lang sobrang mahal na nang gas kaya yoko na.

    anyways, you can't really tell kung me halo ang gas na nabibili e. unless you stick to one gas station.

    halos pare-pareho lang yang shell, caltex and petron when it comes to the base fuel. then they just add additive depending on their brand.
    The problem is the gasoline station/distributors, there are some distributors that put additional liquid( etc. kerosene) for more profit. there are also gas stations that does not maintained their storage tanks clean and free from water contamination especially those that are classified after A and B. (remember their storage tank are placed underground)

    The best thing you can do is know your trusted gas stations to be sure that you don't get contaminated fuel in your tank the next time you fill in.
