    Just wondering? Years ago I was taught to stay away from any gas stations that were not mainstream like little mom and pop type places due to the fact that the major brands had additives to keep injectors clean and the little guys didn't therefore keeping the prices competitive with the big boys. IDK if this holds true or not? Also the fact that I usually get $.10 off per gallon for using the grocery stores with the customer cards. Are they trustworthy? I know Kroger's pumps ask if you want to spend extra to get the additives. So do you use the grocery store gas?

    So do any of you believe or have any knowledge about the additives and buying from say Kroger? I'm just wondering if I'm making a mistake buying their gas to save $.10 a gallon.

    I like QT but I hate it for the fact they are always so damn busy and sometimes have to wait to get to a pump.
