most reasonable lower compression car/truck engines , built in the last 30 years, can run the crappy low octane 10% ethanol laced pump swill thats sold at your local gas station.
if you have an older muscle car that had an 11:1 or higher compression engine or your running an engine like a chain saw or lawn mower that may be sitting for months between uses that ethanol laced crap is very detrimental, as it sits without any movement it tends over extended time, frames, to separated out, ethanol is hygroscopic

hy·gro·scop·ic
/ˌhīɡrəˈskäpik/Submit
adjective
(of a substance) tending to absorb moisture from the air.
relating to humidity or its measurement.
since water is heavier than gas, it settles to the bottom of the tank and in direct contact with the metal surface it can and frequently does cause corrosion issues

products like "STABILE MARINE FUEL ADDITIVE

adding 6 oz of each of these 3 products to your fresh fuel , assuming the common, (16-20 gallon tank capacity) before you put your muscle car in storage is a huge help in preventing problems from developing over a winters storage

heres a web site that lists stations that carry reasonably priced real gas with zero ethanol
