If you're ranking problems, water in the gas is a 10x bigger deal than the additive package they dump into the fuel truck as they're filling it at the tank farm.

There are 25 Pure Gas stations in MA, most seem to have 94 or higher octane - no doubt this stuff is expensive, but, whatever, you can get E-0 gas even in MA if you want to go get it.

Not in fuel, but in additives. That is why major car companies Audi, BMW, GM, Honda Toyota and Volkswagen have awarded the Top Tier name to some fuel companies and that includes some smaller retailers not just large well known names.
And from personal experience with a few vehicles (not all) the PCM will throw out a 300 (random misfire code) with some non Top Tier fuels. Some vehicles I have didn't.
But I'll pay the little bit more and stay with a Top Tier supplier.

Yeah, but it's an hour drive to the nearest place in Massachusetts.
