Part of the trucks load was probably High or low grade for Shell the other part was for Costco with their additive blend.

I also could not find any mention or article of gas stations buying old gas.

Edit:
I also use Costco.
80 cents cheaper per gallon vs everywhere else.
Zero disenable difference in MPG/Feel between any of the brands.
Next time I see a gas truck at a Costco Iíll ask him what other stations share the same gas. But youíre right, Iíve read somewhere all gasoline comes from the same local source- just some sketchy stations serve old/diluted gas.

I've seen Costco listed as a Top Tier provider. So this is not surprising.

There is a website, toptiergas.com I use costco because of the price, but BP works best for me. The entire point of top tier gas is about the additive package.
