Here is a list of top tier stations. It is used by some owners of cars that have direct injection engines. When you have a DI engine you have to be more careful with the quality of gas that you use.
Our cars don't have DI, but it gives you an idea of which stations supposedly have better fuel.

This has been discussed a lot. The simple answer is that basically, gas is gas. One "brand" of station very often buys gasoline from a wholesale distributor of a manufacturer different than the brand they advertise. Joe Blow's Oil company fills his tanker up in the morning at a BP wholesale distributor and makes drops at a Conoco, Exxon, Chevron, and Texaco station. The difference is in the additive packages that each brand uses. And those differences aren't as big as you'd think.

I worked for years in an ExxonMobil refinery a stone's throw from where I live. They have a pipeline that runs to the Northeast US. A variety of different wholesalers besides ExxonMobil ones receive their supply from that pipeline. Remember Hurricane Ike in '05 that hit the Houston area? Remember how all the gasoline retailers across the nation were impacted with shortages temporarily until the refinery got back online? It wasn't just the Exxon and Mobil stations. Because they all got their fuel from the same supply.

Some retailers (particularly corporate owned locations that are not independent franchises) do use strictly fuel from their named brand. Most will buy from the distributor that gives them the best pricing or service.
