What I hear from industry experts is it actually doesn't really matter anymore. The sealing tech is to the point where this part isn't so crucial. It's not like in the 70s where you beat on a motor, replace the cyl head and gain 80hp. You can do some oil analysis to see if you're getting any gas in the oil but I bet you'll be 100% fine.
