Gas Brands

I have a question for all of you.

Does it really effect how much your gas gauge show with what brand of gas you use?

I've used Texaco and Sheetz and the times I used it the gas gauge would show less than what it really had. It would show I would have 1/8th of a tank but when I filled it up it would only take 12 gallons. At an 1/8th of a tank it should've took 14 gallons.

I don't seem to have a problem with this with other brands like Exxon, Shell, or Sonoco (at times). Do you think it's a problem with the quality of the gas? Maybe it's just my imagination, maybe it's a bad sensor.

I've never heard of such a thing but I guess I'm not sure. But I doubt it. By the way welcome to the site.
