    So ever since I got my 02 Tacoma...all I pump is Chevron. I hate mixing gas so I just pump Chevron. When it was up to almost $5 a gallon...I still pump Chevron. But the local Chevron is closed down for remodel and I've been driving 25 miles to the next Chevron for gas...now I know this is stupid but what should I do? I am highly thinking about parking my truck and borrowing my rents Corolla...

    Seriously? Dude, come on. It isn't going to hurt to "mix" gas.

    I would just stick to one of these while Chevron is being remodeled.

    Surprisingly enough for our area all gasoline comes from the same place except for Chevron, they have their own pipe. What makes the brand is the additives package they put in once it gets up here.

    All the gas is the same. What differentiates 1 brand from the other is value add like the detergents they put it in or 10% ethanol or what ever "ice guard", "economax" BS they put in it, its gas.

    As long as there is no water in it just pump what ever is closest. I have been doing that for 20 years and never had any issue.

    none except for crappy hub caps and floor mats.
    Your engine doesn't care as long as its gas. I've filled up with whatever's handy for the whole 15-16 years I've been driving. No problems.
