Been using Costco gas for the past several years, mainly out of convenience, with no problems at all.

I use Sam's gas when I can because it is substantially less expensive than brands around here. The comment about lots of volume keeping the tanks clean is right, and the tanks at my Sam's were put in the ground about two years ago, so they are plastic.

I buy brand (Chevron or Shell) about half the time, but I run a tank of Techron (the only gas additive M-B approves) through it every 5k miles or so, so that detergent dose offsets whatever detergents are missing from Sam's.
