Leaded fuel has no purpose in a 2 cycle engine as it will just cake up on the top of the piston. Lead was an additive to lube the valves and valve seats in a 4 cycle engine. Now they have been built to remove the need for lead as a lubricant. You do not need all that octane unless you have some out of this world compression and even then all you need is 91-93 unleaded.what do u guys think about using leaded fuel for the added lubrication? i can get it at $4 a gallon near my house. if i cut it with 89 octane i can bring it down to 96 octane leaded gas.
Have you seen the price of White Gas lately? Even the Walmart Ozark brand is near $6 gallon around me.
Still worth it for the no-smell, but wowsa.
