    I just know...


    Lead additive is for older autos that have Valves and seats that require Lead to lubricate them, 2 cycles have no such valves.....I have had this talk with many who believed there pre 1975 outboard need lead....did you ever hear of white marine gas....it was all the rage when I was a kid...now its just plan old unleaded regular gas
