    well in may well have

    "If I'd had time, I might have well gone on vocation." Can we put "well" in this conditional structure? Would that have been more likely to happen?

    Yes, you can and it strengthens the likelihood.

    So If someone said "I might have well gone on vocation", would it be more probable than "might have been" and would imply less probability "may have well been"?
