Default Where do you buy you fuel for your vette?

I was wondering what gasoline stations you fill your fuel tanks at and why?
Do any of you ad any additive's to your fuel like octane booster?

Especially those who drive ZO6 and ZR1's

I only buy 93 octane gas for my GS here in Florida.

And I buy at at whatever gas station sells it the cheapest ... not picky

Bought my Vette ethanol gas at Kroger Gas, still buying it for my Equinox. Usually get $0.20 to $0.40 a gallon off since I also buy my groceries at Kroger.

Whatever station is close by when I need it. I dump a bottle of Techron in it at every oil change.

65k miles no issues.
