Usually Standard unleaded at the cheapest price I can find.

Prefer premium on a long trip as thats the only way I see better milage.

It's an expensive way to make pulp... plus you don't get the fuel system cleaners that are in pulp if you use ulp with an octane booster.

I think the cheaper octane boosters add around 7 points you your fuel. ulp is 91 octane, pulp, like optimax, is 98 octane...... you end up with the same octane rating. But optimax is only about $6-$7 more expensive per tank. The octane booster costs over $10.

95 octane from anywhere in the 'mont, BP Ultimate in the Sprint.
And yeah, same as Daniel, can't be f**k hunting for cheap prices.
Time spent hunting for fuel can be better spent using fuel in the Sprint :D

I love people who drive halfway across the city and use $10 worth of fuel to save about $3 at the pump :D

so much for premium, ran out of fuel 40 minutes before the E10 on that test. I think I'll stick to regular form now on, it run out of fuel 20 minutes after premium on the same tank volume.

It depends on the car.
I swear by the fact that when I had enough money to run the fairmont on ultimate, it was getting about 50-100kms from a tank.
