There are two Shell gasoline stations around Barbourville. At one, the pumps have stickers that says 10% ethanol added. At the other, there is no such stickers. Does that mean this Shell adds no ethanol to the gasoline or only that there is just no sticker present stating that ethanol is added? Both are called Shell, so one would assume they sell similar gasoline but apparently not. Does anyone have an answer?

Ok, yeah, this guy wins the dumb a$$ award for the day. There is no such thing is g&m oil gas. They get Shell gas just like the other Shell in Knoxville just like anyone else in the tri-state area. It all comes from Knoxville. Who hauls it has nothing to do with it. There is a big ole pipeline that runs from the gulf up to Knoxville that all gas comes through. Even marathon, bp, exxon, speedway, super Americas gas, everybodys gas comes through this pipeline. Once it gets to Knoxville it is split into separate tanks. Then whoever puts their own additives to it to call it theirs such as Shell. Other than that, its all the same until it gets too watered down which is how they separate it in the pipeline from diesel. This is where lower quality unbranded stuff comes from. The water content is a little higher. I go to all kinds of terminals to fill my truck. Branded terminals like Shell and Marathon and unbranded ones to.

The additives do make gasoline different. Just as you said. Shell probably puts different additives than g&m oil does. Which makes the gas different. Maybe the dumb a$$ award of the day should go to you for contradicting yourself.
