    ARCO Gasoline

    With the price of gas going up, I have been using ARCO premium gasoline. I add one bottle of Lucas or Duralube UCL every other tankful. I am wondering about this fuel, I have heard some bad things about it.
    Thirty years ago I ruined the motor in my father-in-laws truck when I put ARCO Graphite motor oil in it. He never quite got over that.

    I don't like the alcohol blend they put in it. My cars don't like it much either.

    I think I will quit being cheap and buy better gas. I have read the Top Tier link and I am realizing that what they say is important. Any recommendations on the best gas?

    I would feel comfortable with any of the gas stations listed on Top Tier. So basically it comes down to price/location.
