It depends on your nomenclature and how old you are. I can remember when blended gasoline meant leaded gasoline. Then when MTBE was used to oxygenate gasoline it was referred to as unleaded. Then leaded gasoline became just gasoline because it wasn't unleaded. Then with ethanol you have blended gas. If you're referring to Avgas, it's blended with either lead or TEL, but it's not called blended because now that refers to ethanol mixed gasoline.

tl;dr There's no such thing a pure gasoline. I'm just simplifying, we have gasoline + ethanol or gasoline. The gasoline part starts to breakdown in 30 days and has a shelf life of about 3-4 months. The ethanol part starts to go to shit in 30 days and is pretty much toast in 90.

The best gas is fresh gas less than a month old. In my situation going out of my way to buy gas that I need to store because it stores better is redundant. I just use it as I need it and everything stays clean, and fresh. Plus it didn't make sense to jet to a fuel that wasn't always available.
