I would not worry too much about running "regular"
unleaded gas, but might add a dab of carbon
remover every so often. A small bottle of the
stuff would last you several years.
I would get a tube of water-finding paste (the brand
I have is "Kolor Kut"). This is the stuff gasoline
stations use to check their tanks for water; put
a dab of the brown stuff on a stick and "stick"
the tank and if it turns purple, you have water.
I check my tanks maybe twice a season and occasionlly
find a bit of water before it has a chance to accumulate
to the point where the engine is affected.
