Did you know that all car gasoline is different? Gasoline varies because each brand puts different additives into the gas.
In 1995, the EPA began requiring gasoline to have a certain amount of additives to help reduce deposit buildup in car engines.
Without additives in gasoline, deposits form in the engine causing intake valves to stick and buildup to form in fuel injectors. If the parts of the engine are not performing at their best, it hinders the car’s overall vehicle performance. Plus, requiring additives in gasoline also improves your car’s fuel economy and produces less emissions.
Since 1995, many advancements in engine designs were introduced into the market. In 2004, seven automakers — like General Motors (GM), Chrysler and Volkswagen — noticed that the detergent requirements enforced by the EPA did not fully optimize engine performance and that gasoline brands did not use the best quality additives to deliver peak car performance.
Top Tier Gasoline is not a grade of gasoline that you can get at the pump at any gas station. Top Tier is a gasoline that has high-quality deposit control additives to ensure optimal performance by not creating buildup in the engine.
Top Tier gasoline cannot be found at all gas stations. Find out which retailers in the United States sell Top Tier.
