Ethanol isn't bad, theres a misconception. Problem is it sitting and gelling up as stated. I put seafoam in my last tank of fuel in all my vehicles for winter, and I keep few oz in every 5 gallon jug of fuel I get for lawnmowers etc. never had an issue, starts up and runs great. I go through a bottle every 2 years or so of seafoam, but its cheap assurance to help not gel/seperate.
Another problem is, if you are buying crap gas from non top tier. Walmart etc. you should be buying only shell, BP, chevron, etc. If you use cheap gas, you can use a gas cleaner periodically with the savings I guess.
I just use the better gas 90% of time, I only fill with cheap gas if I am traveling and they have some off brand gas station in middle of nowhere. The top tier detergents will help longevity of all vehicles. Its only like 1-2c savings going to cheap gas in my area.
