There is still leaded gas—for some racing fuel, some planes and in some other countries. If leaded can be bought, thus we still have "unleaded".

Before the demise of leaded gas ("ethyl"), Amoco used to sell "white gas" which had no lead and was the highest octane in the US. I think it was 100-102 octane (it would be probably be rated in the mid 90's today because the way they report octane has changed). My '66 Triumph TR 4A loved it (when it wasn't in the shop getting repaired). So, why don't we called "unleaded", "white gas"? I believe camp stove fuel is also called white gas, but is actually naphtha. Why not called that naphtha?

Gene,
Wasn't it 1966 when the British Society of Automotive Engineers determined that motor oil was a liquid and for the Lucas system to work you needed electricity.

A little hijack is a good thing when there are a bazillion posts of gas prices.

Bob, funny you should mention motor oil. After the Triumph started to rust away after 3 years, I sold it. A couple of years later I repeated my trauma and bought a 2nd hand MGB. 1,000 miles after each oil and filter change, the oil pressure gauge would pin itself; goose the gas pedal, and it would come down to normal. After a while, it would pin itself; goose the gas pedal, etc. Changed the sending unit, no change. Ran kerosene through the oil channels for 20 or 30 seconds to clear gunk, but no change. Never found out what was wrong. So, MG's could change oil to a solid. In between those 1,000 mile oil changes, somebody would leave a piece of paper on the road and that would hit the exhaust system and tear up parts of it. The Lucas electrics didn't work with or without electricity. They were fun cars to drive though.

Full tank for $30.00

Hi, today at the local Shell Station we were able to fill up my wife's BMW X3 for $30.00, it brought back some old memories.

Regular..................$1.93

Mid-Grade..............$2.03

Premium.................$2.13*

Diesel....................$2.69

Looks like Diesel is stuck on the high side again.
