Around me 100% gas is "regular" unleaded and the ethanol blend is called ethanol blend or "E-10"
Both burn about the same in a gpa with no problems. But don't store the lantern with automobile gasoline in it. It's a mess to clean out. Regular 100% will leave a varnish sludge. The other is prone to rusting the fount badly. 
A lantern filled with Coleman or Crown fuel can be stored with no ill effects.

Gasoline, whether it contains ethanol or not, is blended differently around the country.  Due to the differences, I suggest you try whichever you like and note the results.  In my case, I don't have local access to RUG without ethanol.   In my area, the summer blend of RUG with ethanol burns just fine, whereas the winter blend doesn't last half as long before the generator is clogged and requires rebuilding.  If this is a lantern you are using often, it can be cost effective using RUG at today's depressed prices, and replacing the generators when clogged, or rebuilding it.  There is a lot of information on rebuilding generators on the forum if you are so inclined. 

As previously stated, you don't want gasoline left in the fount for a long period of time as it does go bad.  If using Coleman or Crown fuel, no worries.

You might consider converting to kerosene if it is easily found in your area as well.

I've tried our local (NE Oregon) regular and ETOH-free premium. I saw no difference, except for the price. ETOH-free is thirty miles away and cost $1/gallon more.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.
