    From what i can tell most single handle pumps in my area dont actually show which fuel was used last... you would have to do the math (gallons dispensed vs full price) to figure that out, unless you have another trick!

    I cant remember the last time i saw a dedicated hosed pump here in socal.

    Yup, the hoses at costco are INSANELY long... 3-4x as long as some other gas stations!

    It's not really all that remarkable, Leo. Honda certifies 134 mpg for a factory stock Grom and I'm only getting a little more than that. I specifically modified mine for gas mileage rather than performance and just ride it normally as a transportation vehicle. It's set up to short shift and still keep up with traffic without needing to pin the throttle.

    Over here it has the last sale still on the pump. So if 87 is 4.00 89 is 4.10 and 91 is 4.20, I look for the pump that says 4.20

    I check for Top-Tier compliance, if it meets that standard, it's good enough for all of my vehicles.

    The only stations I have come across that are NOT Top-Tier are
    Sam's Club (Walmart's warehouse-club answer to Costco)
    BJ's, which is another regional warehouse club.
    Safeway
    Giant Eagle
    Rotten Robbie

    Because of marketing non-sense (the greatest of which is calling 91 Octane fuel "Premium"), it can be very difficult to determine what difference there really is between brands and locations.

    One of the other confounders is that independently-operated stations are more likely to neglect their equipment, which in extreme cases can lead to contamination of the fuel, usually with water or sediment. In most places the facilities are inspected and audited regularly by local government to avoid these issues, but the rigor and frequency of those inspections varies by location.
