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.
