Have you ever put unbranded gas into your car, or do you usually buy branded gas?

No, unbranded stations sell generic gas and often the cost is the same or very close to Top Tier fuels. Modern cars require a more effective additive package than generic gas provides.

No. I buy from the majors because they have the financial resources to stand behind a bad batch.

Yes, the "unbranded" comes from any one of the major suppliers anyway.

Whatever is the lowest price in my travels is what I buy, branded or non-branded.

Not if I can help it. The unbranded stations mostly sell generic gas. I want a good additive package and it usually costs nothing because unbranded stations usually key their gas price to the dominating branded gas station in the area.

There are some branded generic gas stations like RaceTrac and Speedway. I stay away from them too.
