Truck? What truck?!
Top tire means name-brand - Shell, Sunoco, Mobil, Exxon, and the like. Supposedly, you should avoid places like, 'Mike's Gas.' =o\
No and don't use fuel system snake oil. It's in your regular gasoline. Just drive the car and do what the owner's manual says to do.Just got a 2013 civic lx. Is it too my benefit to put premium gas in it. Also pretty much all my driving is Highway. Secondly, how long should I wait to use fuel system cleaner products (gum out) and any preference on which is the best?
Thanks for the help in advance!

When I worked for west mark ,making tankers,concoct-phillips was a great customer.I don't think Sunoco is TT gas. It wasn't listed the last time I checked the website. TT gas supposedly has extra cleaning additives added when the tank truck is filled at the distribution facility so it's the same gas, but with more detergents. TT brands pay the TT organization to become members (as well as some car manufacturers) for the "honor" of saying their gas is TT.
Here's an example of what I think is the smoke of the whole thing. Chevrolet recommends in the Cruze owner's manual the use of TT gas in the Cruze (just like Honda does). However, they also say that you can put a bottle of cleaner (like Techron) in the gas tank at every oil change.
Around here, TT gas is nearly always a nickle a gallon more than non-TT gas. Why would I pay$.05/gal more for gas when every 7,000 miles I can dump in a couple of $4.00 bottles of Techron to achieve the same results. I ran my old '97 Civic EX on non-TT gas for over 105K miles with no additives in the tank and the engine had no issues for the 16 years I had it. End of soap box oration.
Around here, all gas is E10, except for the marinas. We have a BP/Husky and a Sunoco/? refineries in town. Sunoco pricing is all over the place as they price by location in the city. Near an expressway ramp = higher price. Away from an expressway = lower price. In a poor neighborhood = higher price. I've given up on gas pricing. I am still convinced that TT is mostly marketing babble. Show me a NA car that has run high miles on non-TT gas and has engine problems and I might become a believer. My '97 EX never had TT gas and was running wonderfully at 105K miles. The '03 P5 has 90K miles and has never had TT gas in it. Neither engine ever had any problems. You can't blame a bad thermostat in the '03 P5 last August on gas.Apparently Sunoco (part of conoco)won't spend the money to be registered as top tier because not all of their grades at all of their stations are up to spec.so for example go to any chevron in the US and every station on every grade qualifies.costs big money.
So Sunoco doesn't do it.so it's kinda hit and miss.some of theirs is 10% ethanol some isn't.so that's why
