CC Outtake: Fill ‘Er Up With…Leaded?

CC 231 018 1200

I went to fill up my old truck at a big new gas station out on Hwy 99 near the airport, and was a bit surprised to see this pump among the others. Leaded? I thought that had been banned decades ago.  Maybe my ’66 F-100 would like some of that, to remind it of the good old bad days.

Ah; that explains it. Racing fuel, for off-road use only. Of course, one could just fill up cans and pour it one’s car or truck, but at $8.399 a gallon, that would be a bit pricy. Still cheaper than some parts of Europe, though.
