I think there are 4-5 stations in the entire state of Utah that will pump non-ethanol fuel. Dodgy Every time I fill up, I just get a little bit sad. I have to stroke the hood and say "I'm not doing right by you..." Sad

I just run regular gas in my car, but it is a '72 with lower compression.

My '70 429 uses non-leaded gasoline and runs just fine.

I have a quick related question, sorry to jack your post.

What would make an engine require leaded fuel?

I had a '57 Chevy with a 265 V8 that ran fine on regular gas...

I may be way off base, but I thought that higher compression engines needed leaded fuel so they wouldn't get detonation or SOMETHING like that. I'm sure Chuck or Pappy or someone will set me straight, as usual.
