Hess fuel in South Carolina contains 10% ethanol and proably in New York as well.

The jury is out on the long term affects of this in a car designed for performance. I think I'll pass.

Check out this link for a list of "top tier" fuel providers and an explanation of what it means to be top tier:

Top Tier Gasoline

There are some major players that don't make the cut including BP/Amoco, Exxon, Hess and Sunoco (except in Canada)

With the ethanol in gas, it might not be a bad idea to start adding additives. Especially those non daily drivers. Every oil change I add zmax fuel and oil. Almost every fill up of gas I try to remember marvels mystery oil.

I even add it to lawn equipment. Gas is messing things up.

I never found a need to throw in additives. They don't seem to do anything. Fuel injector/carb cleaner only seems to work in a 33% or better mixture with gas. I do use a fuel stabilizer for winter storage, the gas still seems a little sour in spring, but it doesn't hurt the system any.

In my small engines, I just use Deep Creep, and spray it down the carb bore while the motor is running, now that works wonders.

I've always used marvels mystery oil. I use it in my boats and other toys. Knock on wood I haven't had any starting, fouling issues, and gas deteriorating problems like I see frequently. I even put it in my new John Deere. It's suppose to keep everything inside clean as well.
