i wouldn't bother, if you're anywhere near a costco and you drive to work, get the executive, get gas exclusively at costco, it'll pay for its self and you'll get cheap gas.

It's annectodal, but many people on a fb group (including myself) have noticed that our car SIGNIFICANTLY consummes more when using costco's. It ends up costing twice (and time) what I would've gotten in any other gas station.

Note that this is in Quebec. Not sure if it's the same gas everywhere in Canada.

there are 14 refineries that supply the gas for all stations in canada, if this is an issue at costco, it'd be an issue elsewhere too... costco doesnt have their own refineries.

Since we're doing anecdotes, I have the exact opposite experience.
Filling up at what used to be Superstore's gas bar, I was about 10-20% less mileage than filling up at Costco.
Since those have been scrapped for Mobil and Esso, I'm back at par, anecdotally speaking.

Not that any of it makes a difference because unless you're driving the exact same conditions for both tanks there's going to be some variation.

Side note: I also lost about 10% mileage going from AB to BC.

I just bought this today. I went to Costco and received everything they say in the cuppon. I think it worths $20 Costco Shop Card if members set up Auto-Renew at sign-up
They gave me two cards with 10 cad each one.
- $25 Costco.ca Online voucher (minimum purchase $250)
- $10 discount on your purchase of fresh meat
- 1 Kirkland Signature Laundry Pacs (value of $21.99)
- 1 Kirkland Signature Paper Towels (value of $14.99)
- FREE membership for a spouse.

I'm happy because they sell a lot of things for my day by day really cheap.

Superstore is usually cheaper when factoring in PC Optimum points. When factoring in the cost of executive membership, it surely would be cheaper. Lines are also shorter.

Costco is generally about $0.01 or $0.02 cheaper still, even with a PC Mastercard.
This is basically a rounding error at this point though.
Also not applicable any more since Mobil has taken over, but I hated their old gas.

EDIT: It's a landslide right now.

Costco in Langley, BC is currently 1.349
The closest PC eligible station is 1.529
7 cents with PC Mastercard puts it at 1.459 which is still $0.11 more than Costco base. If you factor in 2% for something like Costco's Mastercard it's even better.

Costco in Port Coquitlam is 1.399
PC Eligible nearby is 1.479
This is better at $0.01 more, but still worse after factoring in 2%
This one is more like a rounding error. But I've seen people do worse for $0.038/L

EDIT: Now I'm curious.
Let's say you have a 2010 Beige Corolla. 20k KM per year. 30mpg average city/highway. You're using 1568L per year.
$0.038/L X 1568L/year = $59.59 in fuel SOLELY by fueling at Costco. That's damn near exactly enough to pay for a regular membership.
This is also pretty much worse case scenario.

If you live in Langley, it's a $0.13698 difference which equates to $214.78 which damn near doubles an Executive membership.

Huh. Costco here in Edmonton at the moment is only $0.05/L cheaper than Superstore.

Before or after PC?
If it's before it makes it $0.02 cheaper than Costco before their 2%.
I don't know what gas is, but that'd be close to par.
If it's after, $0.05/L would easily pay for a membership.
