octane level and/or brand of gasoline? seriously? okay, I thought all gas was created equal, is there really a difference between chevron, shell, or 7-11 gas?
All gas is created equal - the difference is in the additives each brand uses.
Octane level is standardized though - but I tend to avoid gas at places like 7-11.

Thanks for the list of TOP TIER Detergent Gasolines, I never knew of such a thing
As I mentioned we've only purchased 2 tanks so far, as the Pilot is brand new, the first from Exxon and then the second from Shell, both of which are on the TOP TIER list
So maybe this clinking or ringing engine noise isnt gasoline related?
Any other ideas???

Take it to the dealer. If it is not gas it is probably ignition timing and will have to be adjusted by a technician.
