Default REC 90 0% Ethanol Fuel

Does anyone know pros/cons for using REC 90 in your car? It's expensive but it's has 0 Ethanol in it. A station by my office has it. I know it's designed for marine use but what about auto use ...

The 8arfts requires 91 octane so i wouldn't pump 90. Also ethanol isn't necessarily a bad thing for turbocharged vehicles. It can actually help with turbo spool because ethanol burns faster and before gasoline. On the is200t gas cap it'll say 'up to e20' meaning its capable with ethanol

I find it interesting that the Shell V power 93 has ethanol. Around me the Shell V Power 93 has 0 ethanol...finally a win for those north of the border.
