Jensen Healey Lotus: Is it possible to use96 oct gasoline on

This answer was rated:

Is it possible to use96 oct gasoline on a Jensen Healey Lotus 1975

you can run 95 Unleaded gasoline for a short period but it should really be on 98 due to the relatively high compression and primitive ignition system and you will need hardened valve seats to run unleaded all the time

if this hasn't been done you must add an additive to replace the lead into the tank to use unleaded fuel all the time
