Ethanol is not a new thing in gas. Sunoco and a few off brand gasoline have had up to 20%, some more, but it was always posted at the pumps. Engines not prepped for ethanol and getting it are not being helped, and over 20% is short term damaging and very low efficient.
I never had good service from Shell, Chevron and Texaco would be my choices.
Otherwise super with one 375 ml bottle of Techron every 1500-2000 miles is the ticket, and always from a high traffic oil company service station.
A car would show appreciation for preventive maintenance by never leaving his owner stranded.
Defensive Driving is never having to say you're sorry: a true love story between man and machine.
