Re: Differences in Fuel by company? Texaco, Shell, etc.? Am I nuts?

They send the batches of fuel premium, regular no lead, etc through the same pipe line and to different brand tank farms here. The tank farms are all grouped together to use the same pipelines.
Additives are stored in their own tanks and added when loading onto the trucks.
One thing you have to watch, in our area are the gas stations, marts, etc run by Asians and Indians.

That's the same for Atlanta. In Doraville, GA there is a tank farm that supplies all of the metro area. If you are over there you will see a BP, QT, Petro, Pilot, Shell, Flyin J, and the no name tankers that haul fuel out of there. I buy my diesel at the places that sell the most fuel so you get the freshest fuel possible. My 2 cents.
