Every car owner knows how strong the quality of gasoline is. affects the running characteristics of the machine. Octane number slightly less than the nominal – and that’s it, the engine can’t increase the speed to normal level. In addition, low-quality gasoline is capable of negatively affect the condition of the car – and with regular refueling with an inappropriate fuel engine will soon exit system.
For car owners who want to refuel only We have prepared a rating from 10 best gas stations for gasoline quality.
Rating of the best gas stations for the quality of gasoline
|Nomination||a place||Gas station||rating|
|Rating of the best gas stations for the quality of gasoline||10||Bashneft||4.1|
|7||BP (British Petroleum)||4.4|
10th place: Bashneft
Bashkir gas station network “Bashneft” characterized by an acceptable quality of gasoline. Gas station of this company work all over Russia. Mostly at Bashneft gas stations pour gasoline of our own production and processing, which is taken out of Ufa oil refinery.
The quality of gasoline is uniform and equally acceptable throughout country, except for individual gas stations in the Ulyanovsk region. However, refuel at Bashneft sensitive vehicles the octane rating of the fuel is still not recommended. But for engines resistant to the effects of not always high quality The gasoline presented at these gas stations is suitable.
It is worth noting that Bashneft gas stations regularly receive negative reviews for the quality of service and infrastructure. So if I want to take a break after a long journey rather than refuel, it’s worth choosing some gas station.
9th place: Lukoil
Lukoil also has its own gas supplier. Get it on Nizhny Novgorod refinery. This production the center has recently undergone modernization and is now equipped with new deep distillation plants capable of producing fuel meeting Euro 5 standards.
However, the quality of gasoline at Lukoil gas stations is constantly changing. There are lots that are characterized by a high degree of purity and correspond to its octane number, so the car goes smoothly and confidently. And there are low-quality ones that lead to jerking and other problems with driving.
At Lukoil gas station, in addition to standard fuel, you can purchase Ecto plus gasoline. Of course, it is a little expensive, but it costs Togo. The quality of this gasoline is usually at a high level. Also into it special additives are added that extend the service life engine and provide environmental friendliness.
8th place: Tatneft
The network of gas stations “Tatneft” buys gasoline on Moscow refinery. And this is an important plus for residents of the capital and surrounding territories. They are provided quality fuel at affordable prices.
But the residents of the regions are not so lucky. At the Tatneft gas station they may run into low-quality fuel that literally stale. So, it is regional drivers who say that after refueling at Tatneft there is a protracted acceleration and uneven car movement. Metropolitan mark high quality gasoline.
Similarly, residents of the capital were lucky with the service, as well as additional services. Gas stations located inside Moscow areas, as well as along the most loaded tracks, differ good infrastructure. Here you can pump up wheels and coffee have a drink and just relax. At gas stations off road there is no additional cross-country service.
7th place: BP (British Petroleum)
British company British Petroleum – or, in short, BP – on The Russian market collaborates with Rosneft. Both of these gas station networks receive gas from two refineries – Ryazan and Yaroslavl. And, apparently, this explains uneven fuel quality at BP stations.
At Russian BP gas stations, fuel of Ultimate quality is presented – with high purity, nominal octane rating and special additives that reduce engine wear and increase general environmental friendliness. And in most cases it is. But sometimes, according to drivers, fuel quality is markedly reduced – apparently, when changing the supplier-refinery.
But BP gas stations offer a full range additional services. Even in small regional venues a mini market is presented, friendly staff work, you can pump up wheels – and in some cases even vacuum salon.
6th place: “Oil Highway”
Gas stations of the Neftmagistral network could become one of the best in fuel quality – they always have a uniform and above average. In addition, they have an understandable bonus program, thanks to which can be significantly saved once in a certain period or even completely refuel the car.
However, everything is blocked by one important “but.” According to reports from drivers at the gas station network Neftemagistral “regularly there is such a problem as underfilling of fuel.
However, according to some car owners, some especially old gas stations use metal containers for storing gasoline. Because of this, fuel quality is reduced. New containers made of composite materials are installed only on some stations.
Due to underfilling of fuel and not always uniform quality, the network Gas station “Neftemagistral” is sent only to the 6th place of our rating.
5th place: ESA
The network of gas stations “ESA” is almost independent and quite young transport company. Therefore, its employees are trying to monitor the quality of gasoline. True, fuel is bought at factories that owned by competing companies – Gazpromneft and Rosneft. In addition, the ESA gas station is extremely difficult – yes, in fact, practically impossible – to meet outside the MKAD.
EKA gas stations are characterized by high quality gasoline. More precisely – stably high, that is, moving from one platforms on another there is no risk of “running into” fuel with a low octane or poor cleaning. In addition, ESA characterized by adequate pricing.
On the other hand, pricing is far from uniform. On the some gas stations “ESA” gasoline may be unreasonable dear. Therefore, it is best to constantly fill the tank at the stations this network and participate in the loyalty program – and then you can save or get fuel at “normal” prices.
4th place: “Track”
The network of gas stations “Route”, as the name implies, is based on the largest transport routes of our country. And obviously that on long trips – for example, on the M4 – fuel quality has crucial. Nobody wants a car to stop gain acceleration or began to move jerkily in a stream at sections at a speed of 90-120 kilometers per hour.
Therefore, the gas station “Route” consistently high quality gasoline. The company acquires fuel at a Moscow oil refinery refinery owned by Gazpromneft.
But with the pricing policy of the “Track” a little lost. IN Moscow region, where most of the gas stations are located networks, there are also less expensive sites. So, on average fuel at the gas station “Route” is 10-30 cents more expensive than competitors. When refueling a full tank, overpayment can be quite substantial.
3rd place: Rosneft
Rosneft gas station chain is one of the largest transport companies in country. She owns several oil refineries at once. factories, as well as a huge number of gas stations. Fuel they are brought from Ryazan, Yaroslavl and Saratov refineries.
That is why the quality of gasoline on them is high – but at the same time unstable. That is, fuel at one gas station can be excellent, at the other is a little worse, the third is a little better, and so on. And precisely because of this small number of “bad” stations (approximately 1 out of 10) this network takes an honorable third place in our rating.
The pricing policy at Rosneft gas stations is adequate. In addition, she has a loyalty program, that is, with regular purchases fuel here you can get additional discounts. On most gas stations there are additional services – from mini-cafes to swap wheels. A nice bonus is cleanliness – even in toilets.
2nd place: Shell
Shell gas stations should go for premium gasoline. Of course, it is somewhat more expensive than usual, but the price justifies itself. Premium fuel has a stable octane rating, high degree of cleaning, and also supplemented with special additives, which reduce fuel consumption and car wear. So Shell is the choice of motorists who care about their “iron horse” and are willing to spend money on it.
But conventional fuel at Shell is above average quality. AND this is not at all justified by the relatively high cost – a liter of the classic AI-92 or AI-95 at these stations can cost 10-40 cents more than competitors.
However, if you regularly refuel and have a special bonus card (including electronic), you can save. Even on fuel of a premium class.
1st place: Gazpromneft
Gazpromneft offers not only consistently high quality honest octane fuel and lack of facts of underfilling, but also many additional services. So, at these gas stations there is always a small minimarket, the ability to pump up wheels, vacuum the interior or even rinse the headlights. Therefore many motorists choose this particular network.
We recommend the purchase of branded G-Drive fuel. It – quite traditional AI-95, just past additional cleaning. Also, special additives are added to it, which are positive act on the driving characteristics and reliability of the car.
However, other types of gasoline at Gazpromneft are also good. And this is where the important flaw lies, with which come to terms.
Gas stations “Gazpromneft” due to a combination of price and quality very popular among motorists. And so at the stations often there are queues, relatively long service and not always purely. Employees just do not have time to cope with all by visitors.
The price of fuel is adequate. And thanks to the bonus programs You can save extra.
