When I'm on the road, I make it a threesome: fuel (topping off), rest room (preemptively, usually clean), C-store purchasing (usually liquids). When I'm locally, emergency restroom and fuel only.

Stations that have E-10 usually say "may contain up to 10% ethanol" or typically the state warning label if required (both are fine for my vehicle... it won't run well on fuel E-20 or higher or having a R+M/2 octane lower than 87, when you're in the mountains you still have to get 87 or higher... quirks of the Atkinson engine design). Stations that have E-0 proudly fly the "no ethanol!" banner and I stopped at all Top Tier Gas stations (I own stock in all of them that are local to Houston; Conoco and Phillips 66 are frequent; Chevron and Texaco are frequent in Texas; Exxon is frequent in Oklahoma and Texas; and Mobil is in the metro Houston to suburban Kansas City route I drive most frequently but the largest Mobil franchisee in Houston has sold unbranded gas as Mobil, put regular gas in the higher octane pumps, and had various violations of weights and measures regulations... mostly all of them)

I usually buy pop or coffee or a newspaper sometimes I use the restroom. Don't use the restroom unless it is really really necessary. Why can't they keep restrooms cleaner? and why can't people keep the restroom clean? Some are really disgusting. Hope their bathrooms at home don't look like that!
