DO NOT use Unleaded Gasoline

WOW Thanks so much everyone for all the input. Thank to your help I found a place 12 miles from me that has the leaded fuel. There is also an airfield about 5 miles from me that could very well have the aviation fuel. I didn't even know that a lead additive was available. I assume that just about an...
