IF the Petro-Canada/Suncor merger goes through:

http://www.ottawacitizen.com/Business/Merger+means+Sunoco+stations/1424647/story.html

Which means no more 94 octane gas! Does this affect/concern anyone?

Why couldn't the converted Sunoco stations still sell 94 octane gas? They will still be getting their gas from the same place.

But in answer to your question, no, it will not affect me as we have neither brand in WI.

B/C PC doesn't offer anything more than 91/92 octane gas, so if a Sunoco station becomes a PC station, its going to offer what other PC stations offer. They won't have 'some' PC station offer 94 octane gas, and I DOUBT they will expand PC's product line to include 94 octane gas.

BTW, doesn't affect me, I run whatever 87 swill I can get cheapest in my Cavalier...but i DID think the 'Ultra 94' was a good oaffering/marketing thing from Sunoco...harkened back to the days of Sunoco 260 for some....

Except for a few stations near the racetrack that still sell 94 to 104 octane, Ultra94 morphed into Ultra93 years ago in my part of the woods.

In this part of NY it is the same, we lost 94 Ultra years ago. I still use the 93 version, since my GTI likes it as much as the Mobil Super at about a dime per gallon discount.

Well, Sunoco Canada is a separate company than Sunoco USA, and they have always bragged and promoted the heck outta their 94 octane Ultra up here. Interesting to see if it just disappears.....

Petro-Canada sells 94 octane gas in certain markets already. Husky/Mohawk does in the prairies. I wouldn't worry.

ditto. But the benefit to having the 4-grade setup is that 91 halves the price difference between 89 and 93, which are mid and premium at all the stations around here... Sunoco cant charge more for a 93 ultra gasoline, so tey charge the same, and offer a better price on 91.

As an update, I've found on the Canada Sunoco site that Sunoco stations will be becoming PC stations.

These stations, and select other ones, will still be carrying 94 octane gas, the exact same stuff that was sold before....

Is Sunoco the only place to get 94 octane gas in Canada?

AFAIK, yes. The PC stations that 'were' Sunoco's will offer the same 94 octane gas, and some existing PC stations will be up-graded' to serve it as well.

Some stations have 93 octane gas, like the Stinsons I was at the other day....but almost all are 91/92 octane for premium.

Funny because the Sunoco station that was near me is a Husky station now
