Since the stealer sell Techron in a bottle with the BMW label on it, I think it's safe to say that BMW prefers the Techron. If you use Chevron or Texaco gas you'll get the benefits of Techron whenever you drive. Check out www.toptiergas.com/retailers.html for retailers that sell gasoline with the fuel system cleaner that conforms to the specs jointly developed by BMW/GM/Honda/Toyota.

Just switch up. Use one this time and the next time, use the other.
