Best gas is there one?

So I was wondering I have always gone to BP and gotten 93 octane gas, People have been telling me Shell is better for power/the engine? I kind of always figured its all the same and people just have favorites that they like go too is there truly better gas (Sticking with 93 octane) from other companies? If so what gas company has it?

Locally we have - BP, Golf, Shell, Sunoco, Valero and a few others can't think of the names right now.

Yeah I mean I basically just use BP, but I have been hearing shell is like the best gas because of that new nitrogen stuff? Helps clean the engine and gives better mileage some how? Wanted to see if there was any proof of it being a better gas

Dream, why dont you be our test bed for it, lol. Worst case you get the same gas mileage as now, best scenario, you get a little more power (seat of the pants), better MPG, and a clean engine.

Have you tried to google it or anything similar. Just to see if there were any "independent" studies done on it? Thats my only other thought/suggestion about it.

I've used Shell 93 in my baby girl from the beginning. She hasn't complained yet.
