I have had a concern on the underground storage tanks. That they may be old and contain water and dirt. Should I avoid older service stations or maybe its not a thing.

Only thing you didn't mention is the splash blending done when the driver swipes his card at the loading rack which usually add the additive package (Techron for example) into the truck and the "generic" gas is loaded on top and mixed during the ride to the stations. We were an indy company and shipped fuel to tank storage/loading facilities for sale.

I blended in SoCal and the only company we did "special blends" for was Exxon, who had certain specs for their base fuel prior to additives.

^This is correct. The additive package for the particular brand is added at the loading rack.

Same goes for "offroad" diesel, it's the exact same as the regular diesel other than a red dye is added at the loading rack. It's only an indicator that road tax has not been paid, thus "offroad" use.
I mistakenly filled up with offroad diesel, went in to tell the girl behind the counter while this old guy with his hands in his coveralls is telling me "you're gonna burn that SOB up, that fuels too hot for yer truck son!", to which I said "I don't think that red dye has much effect on the engine but it'll stain the hell out of your work boots!".
