Gas question!!!!!!

Do you think they really put additives in the gasoline they sell us ?There have been 3 types of gasoline you can purchase,regular,mid-grade and premium.But there is only one truck delivering gas.So is there 3 trucks of different gas?Or are we all being hoodwinked into thinking that????I just filled up and they were out of regular but charged me for regular even though i had to purchase premium!So tell me is it all the same or what?? The clerk said its all the same so ?????

  • The gas trucks have different compartments in them for different grades of gas. The Govt does regularly test the gas for the octane levels

  • No No, No, its all a different Gas grade. The truck that delivers Gas has three sealed off compartments in the one huge gas tank on the Semi truck that delivers the Gas to the Gas Station.Using the wrong Gas in your car could and would destroy your car engine.
