Hi All, I have a new-to-me 71 coupe. I've ready through many posts but they go back years and wanted something more recent from the group. I live in a state where pure, non-Ethanol gas is very rare. We have E10 but may go up to E15 due to recent events. The only spot on pure-gas.org is a small city 14 miles in the opposite direction I'd be cruising.
So for those of you who don't have the option to use pure gas, what are you doing? Adding something like Sta-bil, Lucas, Marvels to the tank or something else? Or are you letting it it ride as-is?

Thanks for any info in advance,
John

Hi,
Burning 93 octane unleaded premium and adding bottle of Lead Substitute to every fill up. 70 Vert with 351C 4-bbl Edelbrock runs well. Misses when I don't add the lead.
Joe
Was your 351C a stock 4bbl? This one is 2bbl with lower compression than the stock 4bbls had. I'll try the lead as this has a miss at idle.
