I'm not sure what we get here but I know where it comes from, United Refining Co.  My father retired from there.  The general philosophy there is WATER AND DIRT WILL BURN!  Thier winter formulation used to have increased levels of methanol to keep the octane as advertised. 
 
They are now using ethanol however.
 
The latest lab tests haven't been disclosed but I've heard rumors of some outdoor testing involving an old rag dipped in thier gasoline being stuck to the end of a piece of reinforcement bar...  it took a propane torch to get it to ignite, and this was while the lab techs stood around smoking Marlboros while they watched!
 
I werked there for a few years too...  this story isn't totally untrue.

The worst thing is that apparently they aren't always notifying the
customer that alcohol is in the fuel being dispensed - I've never seen
a label on a pump here in NY, and I've been told that it's used here -
any label should be BIG and visible if so...whatever happened to "truth
in labeling"??  Most of the consumer rights groups have been
neutralized by corporations it seems.
