    Is leaded fuel better as than unleaded gasoline? 100 octane low lead aviation fuel (100LL avgas) is tested in several engines: Wankel rotary, see through piston engine, fuel injected generator, small engine for lead build up, and Predator 212 for top speed performance. A special thanks to Matt from the Warped Perception MNclip channel for loaning his rotary engine to me! Please check out his channel. His videos are absolutely amazing!!!

I used 100 octane leaded fuel in my dirt bike', but i had to diluted it with 91octane in order for it to run more efficient in my 2stroke" over all it ran much better,i ran it in my lawn equipment it ran much cleaner,Running it concentrated didn't notice any huge proficiency.my opinion it runs better if you diluted it,it reduces the lead content and want interupt The octane that will allow the engine to run cooler and much better.

better? don't people know or understand why lead was added to fuel in the first place? if they did they would know why "better" really isn't a consideration. lead was added to lower the knocking noises that an engine makes, that's it, the performance between leaded and unleaded is all down to the octane level, which has nothing to do with lead. oh and gasoline is normally adjusted to be within a set range for it's octane level.

How about leaded gasoline vs unleaded. Not aviation fuel....Can you even get it?

Could you test disc brake pads? I recently had mine changed on my Lexus (4 wheel disc brakes) and now just days after being cleaned my front wheels are black with brake dust. Didn't happen before the change .Great videos keep them coming.

The wankel engine is neat. So, I vote for wankel engine tests. and I had these extra letters so I threw them in i hope I'm not suspect. it's just a flat board of letters, how could I not?

Of course it's not better. Mechanical function has nothing to do with opinion. Lead was used in early model cars to help reduce engine knocking, boost octane ratings, and help with wear and tear on valve seats within the motor. Improvements in engine design, and better materials made lead something no longer needed. The title to the video is to generalized. "Is leaded fuel better than 87 octane in an antique Ford flathead engine with high compression pistons and original valves" , would have been a better title, since the question is specific to a certain engine, design, and specs. The title as it is makes it sound as if they can be compared as a matter of preference with no regard to application, giving uneducated audiences the impression that you may simply just prefer one over the other. One is not better than the other. It's like asking if a 10mm wrench is better than a 12mm wrench. Well if I need to loosen or tighten a 12mm bolt, then the 12mm is obviously better because it's made for that specific application that I need it for. 10mm wrenches were not designed to fit 12mm bolts. One is not better than the other, they are each made for specific things. It's a silly question I think.

Today we're going to test ghost fuel vs regular gas. Lots of people claim that their engines produce more power and last longer using ghost fuel. Of course, ghost fuel releases howling specters when burned, causing souls of the damned to pour into our world, leaving ruin and madness in their tortured wake. Here's how we'll do the test...

Before the catalytic converter, lead was used as an octane booster and valve lubricant. Amaco was the first brand to have all grades of gas unleaded.

Leaded fuel will ruin your catalytic converter as well as spark plugs, but is perfect to run in non-catalytic converter engines as aviation fuel has no ethanol and does not go bad like regular gasoline! The reason why aviation fuel ran richer in the go-cart was because it designed that way to provide better cooling for air-cooled aircraft engines (richer fuel mix makes engine run cooler). It also made the go-cart run faster because it is higher octane and provided more horsepower, that is why they run high-octane fuel in race cars.

The speed will be the same because of gearing the av gas should run hotter and a stronger spark

did you ever do a test to see if ethanol gas will unfreeze a fuel line that has ice in it? its alcohol so would ethanol work better than isopropyl gas line antifreeze? or will ethanol gasoline keep water from freezing in your gas line? just an idea

For something you may not know, high octane fuel does NOT mean more power. It's actually less power. High octane fuel is for high compression engines to prevent pre ignition. Put high octane in a car that calls for 87 octane, and you'll have a car that runs bad.

so right but that is to much for the mouth breather to under stand! i have on 87 ran 10:1 or more compression on a 302 ford iron heads from 1966-67 289 with a carburetor and dizzy no ping or sine of it on plugs. the key is small chamber and tight quench aka mechanical octane .it has a small solid lifter cam so it releases sum of the pressure with a 4 speed and deep gears 60 mph is 2900 rpm keeps lode off the engine the fast piston speed keeps the mix moving along with qench no ping! use 160* thermostat. the low octane and hi btu over premium gives better power at a lower cost and i get better than factory mpg even thou it is more suted for rode racing or dirt track. the key is dynamic compression and quench. all so the tune.

Lead is better if you have an older engine with non-hardened valve seats.

Air fuel ratio corrected av gas has more energy content than v10 however ave gas is designed for high compression engines and is poorly suited for engines designed to run on v10 pump gas engines.

Hey project farm does mixing synthetic and non synthetic oils , because of a leaking engine, and bringing oil pressure to running level lubricate less than either alone. In other words is mixing oil brands and synthetic not synthetic (mostly)dangerous.

I am watching your fantastic videos. Looks like head cylinder and components cleaning abilities depend on temperature. I think the higher temperature in lowest RPM is the key in 80%.

There both gasoline and the difference in how they run has nothing to do with there being lead in it more likely the lack of alcohol in the fuel the more alcohol the richer you have to run the engine.

100LL is formulated for high altitudes at a pretty steady rpm for long periods of time. You gain nothing by running it in ground based engines and it's still toxic.

WARNING: Seriously important advice on wearing nitrile, latex or any stretchable gloves while using a drill press or any high torque drill or wire wheel - DON'T DO IT! - Even a tap of a stretchable glove on a spinning wheel, especially one with cutting edges (drill bit) or scraping edges (wire wheel) can suck your gloved hand around that spinning surface and break your hand or fingers and even remove them. The action is so fast you won't have the time to pull back. The more durable the glove the less likely it will tear off your hand and the more likely it will draw your fingers around the spinning drill bit. Especially the durable black nitrile "mechanics" gloves.

Back in the late 80s I worked on the civilian side of a military airbase, we had 3 fuel trucks with 100LL. Every morning we had to drain 5 gallons of fuel out of each tanker, (helped reduce any water build up) back then we dumped it in what basically was just a hole in the ground. I used to run my old 69 truck on it, and an old 68 harley. Never did run them on it straight, but at about 75% 100LL- 25% cheapest unleaded I could find.

It could be an issue of lubrication if you are finding metal shavings in the oil. Check for any leaks or low oil first. How old is the oil too?

The aviation "low lead" fuel is by no means low in lead content. It was labelled as low lead fuel when it was compared to the original higher lead content of aviation fuel. The orginal aviation fuel had a higher lead content then today's leaded aviation gasoline does.

The reason the AvGas runs fat is because it is formulated molecularly to run above 3500 rpm and to run at altitude where the atmosphere is much less dense. To make a good comparison at sea level you would have to re-calibrate the A/F ratio to compensate for the atmospheric pressure increase. Also, the 100LL still has MUCH more lead in it than automobile fuel EVER had. Once the engine is recalibrated for the AvGas, you'd also need to run a plug about 2 or 3 heat ranges hotter than OEM spec. The reason I know this is because I used to run AvGas in my 12:1 SCR hot rod engine and did extensive research and testing to get the A/F ratios dialed in for max power and streetability. The testing you did was interesting, just not complete. Love your channel!
