I try to avoid it due to quality issues. Can't say I don't ever, though.

What do you mean by "quality issues?" Have bought a lot of discounted Giant Eagle gas, never a problem.

Giant Eagle, Pitlot, and Flying J all buy "rack gas" which just means they by from the cheapest vendor of a given period. Yiou could get BP, Marathon, Shell etc. All good fuels.

That what I thought. I haven't heard of any real fuel problems in quality since the 70s or maybe early 80s -- there was a time Sohio (now BP) supposedly had quality problems. Has there been any fuel quality problems?

Only ones I know of are local staion issues feom time to time were someone puts say diesel fuel or E85 in the wrong tank.
E85 though is hard on vehicles even the ones designed for.it ( flex fuel) because it ready absorbs water .

Then of course you have the idiot with a diesel that grabs the wrong hose and puts gas in their diesel pickup.

there are fewer and fewer refineries online nowadays thanks to the all-seeing, all-knowing government, so your gas is really almost all the same no matter which brand you buy. The only difference is the mix of additives a particular brand may use.

I use GE's program all the time. It's simple, easy to use, and saves a bunch of money if you use it smartly.
