The past few days I've been doing a test on the live stream question videos by making them longer with more questions but no funny pictures to see what you guys preferred. I've decided to keep the same format as before, shorter videos with funny pictures instead of longer ones without the pictures, since I don't have time to do both. So all videos will once again have the pictures, thanks for the input and support! ⬇️ Things used in this video: 1. Ethanol Test Kit: amzn.to/2PNXblf 2. Common Sense 3. 4k Camera: amzn.to/2HkjavH 4.

if you go to a discount gas station and get the cheapest gas, would you recommend buying a fuel additive like that chevron techron stuff or STP?

I never heard which stations to avoid.... I got distracted by Scotty's waving and started reading the comments. I will never go to Arco again. I put their gas in my car and it wouldn't start. I added fuel injector cleaner a couple times and it cleaned it up and then I only went to Chevron or Shell stations. It was fine after that!

And what many do not know about Top Tier gasoline is stations who claim to sell it are only required to buy a given amount every month. Once they hit that quota, they are free to buy anything else they'd care to buy...and they do. Your best bet is to buy gas from a station that's busy, selling lots of gas all of the time. This way you know you are getting fresh gas. In this day and age, you are not going to do much better than that.

they dont tell us ?well we can surmmise its because the additives are carsenogenic,or rot the valves or cause dimentia .????and likely just cost us more per gallon for no earthly good or no better than dropping into ya tank a squirt of metholated spirits .

Hey Scotty, I enjoy your videos, but maybe you should take a bit of time, or hire a grunt to clean up all the crap laying everywhere. It doesn't do anything for your credibility rating. See, I can relate because it looks like mine, however that is about to change. Drives me nuts. I'm really not a slob and I'm guessing you really aren't either. It just tends to get away from us. I'm actually a perfectionist.

One if not the biggest thing to know is the new gasoline with ethanol breaks down faster then years ago... So buying gasoline from a busy station means fresher gas. Stay away from a gas station that is not busy... one thing a lot of station owners were guilty of is adding water... not so much today because Mom and Pop don't own stations today.

Scotty, that story of your where you went to a station with a one gallon tank and only got 85% is kind of fishy. Or the receptacle you used had a larger capacity, remember you didn't use a "calibrated measure" or you simple tested incorrectly.

Supposedly the reason why New Jersey has the gas station attendant pump your fuel, is so they can give uneducated workers a job. If that's true, I can appreciate it. When I am visiting that state, I do however get out of my car to keep an eye on things anyway. Just to be sure.

A sleeeeezy industry. Or so a friend of a friend who read it on the internet...... I dunno... No big leap to think the industry is crooked from the time it leaves the ground to the time the "gallon" if it's weight is not being cough cough adjusted by the highly reputable store owners via a simple/cheap mod. Inspections are anything but random or unannounced. And YES, the cheap gas causes rubber orings/gaskets to swell.

Pumping your own gas is a scam by states who claim you will pay less, but you don't because the scam is making you do the work. Do they give you hand towels as they may have in the beginning? Some people are dressed up for work, wedding,etc. and they are pumping gas getting dirty hands and possible stains.

@Borax Sopanic Not sure what that has to do with anything but we don't really have a choice. A lot of stores around here make people do their own check-out. Personally I like choices. I don't mind having my own gas pumped, but when the place is hopping I'd rather be able to do my own versus waiting ten minutes for the attendant to show up.

One scam that is done here in the Las Vegas, NV area by a few gas stations is they will post a bogus price on the sign that is lower than what the pump is set for. People pump the gas not knowing the price is not the price on the sign. That low price on the sign is showing up on Gas Buddy and people like me feel good that they are getting the lowest price in town. At one station that runs the scam they will offer to give you a receipt that has the price of the sign on it, apparently this causes some people to believe the pump is actually pumping the price on the sign but showing a higher number. Always check the price on the pump before paying.

I hope you realise it's ridiculous for people to pump their own gas. Are they giving you a savings?...no...that was the claim in the beginning to get people to do work for the stations. Self pumping is worse than self service. Soon you will be paying and doing your own work in everything.

Scotty, I miss service stations like your Dad's. Although my Dad was pretty competent with car care, it was nice to pile out of the car, hit the ladies room, buy the glass bottled Cokes, Lance peanuts and gum. By the time you all got back to the car it had been fueled with "ethal", the oil, water, tire pressure had been checked and topped off as needed. Cars were taken care of and we drove all over the lower 48. 🚗

If ethanol increases octane how do you get less mileage on ethanol per capita?
Jeffrey Creem
Jeffrey Creem 10 days ago
Octane is not a measure of the energy density of fuel. It is a measure of how much you can compress it before it explodes. Using fuel with octane rating lower than the design point of an engine causes some of the mixture to expose before the spark plug fires causing 'knocking'. Using higher octane fuel than required essentially just wastes money.
