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

Yes, just because it's Costco fuel, I have no idea who refines it. When I'm travelling I use name brands....

Used to fuel up at the cheapest gas station

Since I got a better car now, I only fuel at "Top Tier" gasoline locations with added detergents like Shell, BP, and Exxon/Mobil

No. I never have. But especially not now since my fiancee bought me a ML 350 as an engagement gift.

No, or at least not as a rule. Even when out of town I try to fuel at a known name brand.
