Check with your owners manual. But as a former lawn professional, I only used Premium fuel in my Scag zero mowers. You should however use ethonal free fuel if you don't run at least a tank a month through it or you can buy Marvel Mystery Oil as a fuel additive to help keep your motor clean and running smooth. I use Marvel Mystery Oil in the boat, mowers, and 4 wheelers. Works great. Ethonal free gas is hard to track down so this is a great alternative.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

Can I use unleaded fuel in my 1972 3hp engine

Lead is basically a lubricant with additional octane boosting properties for gasoline powered internal combustion engines. Engines intended to run with leaded gasoline that are provided with with unleaded gasoline instead are subject to overheating and failure. Read more about lead here:

Why Lead Used to Be Added To Gasoline

Your best bet would be to use leaded gasoline - or in the absence of a leaded gasoline source, a lead additive or substitute. Most autoparts stores sell this - and if you're not near one that does - Amazon has it:

Amazon com lead additive for gas

Good luck!

Can 94 jetta run on leaded or unleaded petrol

It is best to run this engine on unleaded petrol. A high grade unleaded will give you extra performance and cause no damage. Leaded fuel was designed for cars made in the 60's to 80's that had used softer materials in their cylinder heads, leaded fuel pro-longed cylinder head life and reduced pre-ignition. Unleaded fuels are a cleaner, safer fuel to use.

I have a Isuzu D/C 4x4 KB 260 1997 Do I use unleaded or leaded petrol

I am assuming since you posted this question you are not US based where leaded petrol has been phased out since late 70's. The Isuzu KB260 truck was manufactured to use Unleaded petrol. Lead was added to be a lubricant in older engines that were hand machined in factories LONG ago... the valves and all werent as close in tolerance and the lead in teh gas helped keep them in shape. Newer engines, such as your Isuzu, utilize computer machining during assembly and the tolerances are more the lead is not required. Be sure and use Unleaded in your vehicle.

The term "Unleaded gas only" refers to the type of gasoline to be used. You would use "Unleaded gasoline" instead of "Leaded gasoline". Yes, you will mix oil with the gas normally at a ration of 50 to 1. (1 pint of oil to 6 gallons of "Unleaded Gasoline"). If you do not put oil into your gasoline, you will burn your engine up due to lack of oil. I hope this helped, Good Luck Please rate me, Thanks

My cng truck runs fine on nat gas,when switched back to unleaded gas truck stalls,what is the fault ,how is the two computers controlled,what deos the switch turn off.

tune up for gas is different in the timing compared to lead or unleaded fuel by upto 12 degrees
the two computers control the engine management & the transmission
when you switch between nat gas & fuel a solenoide is activated to block ether so they cant mix
if they did mix your gas would freeze the fuel & you would see the fuel pipes start to get iced up
