Well, last I heard, we had some 70 something different blends of gasoline across the state, so unless you have a real good nose for additives, who knows what you're getting? The stuff we get wreaks havoc on fuel lines. They crack up in six months or less. Fuel also has a bit of propane, or sulphur smell to it.
