Does it matter which gas station you buy your gas from?
Question: In my 2017 Rogue it has a 55 Litre gas tank and I usually buy it from Costco and they are usually 10 cents cheaper per litre than lets say Petro Canada, Esso, and Shell. I get 87 octane since thats what it says in the owners manual but I can also put 89 but 87 should be good. I am wondering if I should get it from Shell even though its more, is it better for the car itself and the gas tank? Does it last longer?

Drilling for crude oil, transporting it and building a refinery to convert it into gasoline is a very, very expensive exercise. It's only viable because of the economy of scale so there aren't too many players. People like Costco do not get involved in oil. It's not their core business activity. What they do instead is to use their buying power to get a huge discount on the gate price of gas at the local refinery. This allows them to sell it at a low price. It's a business decision how much profit (if any) they take. Now depending where you live, you may only have one refinery serving your entire area. So guess what happens. Yep, that e.g. Shell refinery sells fuel to all their competitors and those competitors reciprocate to Shell in areas where Shell are not so well represented. So short story is all the fuel sold in your area probably comes from the same refinery or two, and all the rest is marketing BS. As you can hopefully see, the fuel sold in your town is not necessarily exactly the same brew as sold on the other side of the country even by the same brand, so it doesn't make sense to get hung up this brand is better than that. Bottom line, buy the cheapest fuel that suits your car. Gasoline in first world countries is made to very high quality standards, and it won't harm your engine no matter the brand label it is sold under.
There are usually several cabs at the Westbury station to meet each train and when there aren't enough for all the passengers who need them, the drivers usually radio back to their bases to send more drivers. The LIRR website also gives the phone numbers of local cab companies that are based in each town that their trains stop in. It's a good idea to have them programmed into your cell phone just in case. Just a heads up though, riding the cabs in LI is not like a taxi in Manhattan. The cab drivers usually take more than one passenger going in the same general direction and sometimes you get dropped off first and sometimes you don't.
In Scotland there is only one oil refinery and nearly all petrol sold comes from there regardless of brand. The top brands like Shell, Esso and BP claim their fule has additives and cleaners that the supermarket fuels don't but that may just be marketing.
Love the Bowie Reference. It's what drew me to this question. MQ: Space Oddity - Something so firghtening and yet so tranquil about Major Tom's journey into space. Let's Dance - I just love this song! MQ2: Anything by Black Sabbath (specifically N.I.B.) The entire album Antichrist Superstar by Marilyn Manson BQ: I am sleepy and at work so... meh BQ2:Professional definitely. If you damage your hair too much, that sh*t falls out BQ3: Maker's Mark and Coke BQ4: I watched Control (the story of Ian Curtis and Joy Division). It became one of my favorite films.
Buy from a nice looking station with lots of lights. The idea is to avoid skimmers. Seedy looking places are more likely to be dishonest. IMO
yeah, you got to set up a media server on your computer, then allow your ps3 to connect to it, the ps3 does it automatically, you have to do it manual on your pc, once you do that. you can play music, videos, and pictures from your pc right on your ps3. here is a video showing you how to. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hmuhW2xvTY
