a leaded engine requires you use gasoline with a lead additive which helps stop knocks and pings but is very hard on the environment, but on the plus side the leaded fuel would actually lubricate your valves and other fuel system components like the floats in the carburetter a non leaded uses fuel with different types of additives which believe it or not still contains a small amount of lead
I don't think there is a way to visually tell the difference between leaded and unleaded fuel. However, leaded gasoline has become "extinct" and it is more likely that you have unleaded gasoline in the can.
I don't believe there is a such thing as a leaded fuel engine. All gasoline is unleaded, some just a higher grade.
Leaded fuel which has been banned for sale in the U.S. has a lead additive added during the refinery process.
try a mixture of half leaded and half turpentine substitute i used to use leaded, but then decided to give unleaded a shot, works better for me, and had the engine checked.. No damage
leaded fuel is economic compared to unleaded because more distance is covered with leaded than unleaded
leaded fuel contains lead which damages the engine while unleaded fuel contains negligible amount of lead.... on older engines the lead in the gasoline was to lubricate the valve stems in newer cars they have designed that requirement out
It won't hurt the engine but it will hurt the catalytic converter.
No, it will mess the engine up
Unleaded fuel should always be used in a modern engine. Leaded fuel causes a detrimental buildup that will quickly destroy your bike.
An engine of that era would run better on leaded gas.
The engine originally ran on leaded gas (hence, no torque converter). Leaded gas is no longer available (in the US), but the vehicle will run well on unleaded.
Unleaded fuel was introduced in the mid 1980s, it depends what engine it has, if it needs leaded fuel you will need a new engine
