      Precisely. I have always used 93 (mostly Shell). Since I bought the car with ~ 3k on it. Then once the tune came along, I have never strayed from Shell.

      Ah. I seriously don't remember how much. I think I put in $43 worth...but that's all I remember.

      Only other gas I will use is Hess. If I am in a pinch, obviously any 93 will do. But I never fill with non-Shell.

      They don't really have those companies on the west side of PA. I only fill with Sunoco 93. They are also incorporated with the grocery stores, so I get discounts off of the gas which is a plus.

      i dont have shell around me but i ususally use sunoco 93 or hess 93, i would like to use valero (american gas) but around here its not of the highest quality due to rumors of water contamination

      I almost always use Hess 93 but from time to time I use Valero bc it is much cheaper than Hess.

      Changed the fuel filter. At 57k, it was a little over due.

      The most time consuming part? Finding the right fuse diagram for the fuel pump relay fuse.

      Thank you too

      I guess i will first try wet sand and buff first, then clay bar? and if all else fails i guess i will use that touch up kit.

      Im really inexperienced when it comes to body work so i guess ill be googling and youtubing for the next few days

      I dont know where in town they sell 93 octane, but I know there are a couple of gas station up in northside near LV Speedway that sells 100 octane... I always use 91, Chevron or Shell
