OH crap!  You've mentioned octane and oil on an internet newsgroup!  
Now you've REALLY done it!  ;-)

But seriously, something I hadn't thought of before... I'm guessing 
these engines were built to run on LEADED gasoline.. true? What do 
y'all reccomend for addatives, if anything?

*93* octane?  You'd be hard-pressed to find 92 around here - about 
95% of the stations here the highest grade is 91, and here in St. 
Louis we're forced to use that oxygenated crap too.  Had to totally 
re-jet the carb in the Westy last summer to get it to run right.

As for oil, I favor synthetic in NEW, run-in motors, and single 
weight oils in older, used-up type of motors, and air-cooled motors.

That's all I got to say about that.
