Because of this experience, I sometimes take the brand of gas in the fuel tanks at the convenience store with a grain of salt.

On the opposite side of any potential argument, my grandfather owned a Texaco station in 1962 and a Standard Oil/Amoco station from 1963 and into the 1990's. I know in the 1970s-80s he always got his gas from a local distributer that was a part of the Standard Oil/Amoco company. It was probably a little convenient knowing that the refinery was about 45 miles away (this is outside of the Chicagoland area).

BTW, both gas stations are now gone. The Shell is a strip mall and the BP is now across the street at that intersection.
