Cheap gas stations in Toronto

Cheap gas in Toronto may be an oxymoron but we decided to survey our Twitter followers to see if they had any recommendations for stations that regularly priced their gas a few cents cheaper than the competition. Apparently, a couple of hot spots on Dundas and the Danforth routinely have price wars, but a number of other sought after stations were routinely mentioned as well. You know what they say, count your penny and the dollars will follow. Vroom, vroom!

Here's where to find cheap gas in Toronto.

Shell (1292 Dupont St. at Emerson, near Lansdowne)
The line-up may dissuade some drivers from making a pit stop at this Dupont Shell, but others a willing to wait for what's often the cheapest gas in the downtown core.

Top Valu (1161 Kingston Rd, east of Victoria Park)
The name says it all, Top Valu, for all your gas deals, but it's only open till 8, so get there early.

Star Gas (3180 Danforth Ave., at Madeleine)
Head to the Danforth to Star Gas to fill up for cheap. My advice: go during non-peak hours as they are open 24/7.

Pioneer Gas (840 Dupont St., just east of Ossington)
Pioneer Gas competes with the Shell on Dupont for clients, often with price wars that would make any driver smile.

Costco (1411 Warden Ave. at Canadian Rd., and 50 Queen Elizabeth Blvd. near Taymall Ave and Queensway
Costco offers everything else for cheap, so why wouldn't they also be the cheapest purveyors of gas? Two locations, Warden Ave, and Taymall Ave, will hook you up.

Danforth Gas and Wash (3561 Danforth Ave., at Warden)
The edge of Toronto and Scarborough is a real hot spot for cheap gas, serving both communities. The Danforth Gas and Wash is another location for a great deal 24/7.

Lambert's Gas ( 2145 Dundas St. West at Richie Ave.)
Lambert's Gas is another of the Dundas gas stations that has low-low prices on gas, but this one seems to have a little less of a lineup at times.

OP (1471 O'Connor Dr. at Amsterdam Ave.)
The hours at this East York car wash and gas bar kind of stink (open till 5:45 pm and closed Sundays) but the price is right.

No Frills (449 Carlaw Ave. at Victor Ave.)
Leslievillers love Dave and Charlotte's No Frills for a sweet deal on gas (and produce, and international groceries). Pro tip: Go gas up before you do your grocery shopping, and you'll earn coupons to spend inside.
