mogus
 n.— «It is all about “mogus,” the term for the generic gasoline that the refineries ship, via co-owned pipelines, into jointly controlled holding tanks. When a tanker truck pulls up to the mogus tank, it is filled with generic gasoline that is treated with each brand’s additives as it flows into the truck. Consequently, oil executives know exactly how much mogus is flowing in and out of the tanks and to whom in real time.2» —“Bogus Mogus” by Peter Byrne Metroactive (California) Sept. 28, 2005.
