After reading chapter in Josh's book regarding TEL, I'm convinced that using regular modern gas is the best way to go.
"Studies have shown that (gas without TEL) combustion chamber deposits have been reduced, used oils contain less acids, internal engine rusting has been reduced, and spark plugs and exhaust systems last much longer."

Seems like a no-brainer.

Just don't let that crap stay in your tank for very long and it will work great.

I agree with Bill on the avgas. As an airport bum, I changed a few sets of spark plugs in air-cooled Lycomings & Continentals. You could see the lead deposits from 100LL in the lower plugs. Aviation motor oil might be a thought too. The FAA doesn't allowing a lot of monkeying around with airplanes.

Those of us that live in the rust belt can't exercise the cars for months some winters. With a couple of old cars, a motorcycle and lawn & garden equipment , I'd rather stabilize fuel in the winter than chance it. For my money the Lucasoil fuel additive & stabilizer works a lot better than Stabil. I have seen Stabil go bad in its plastic container. I have had recent experience with the Lucasoil product actually improving fuel in a motorhome that had already started to turn.

I had to convince my airport that the cars were mostly garage queens, and were not a threat to the enviroment.
