Correct Fuel?

Recommended Posts

What is the best fuel and lead additive to use on a 1962 Hotchkiss? Should I use any octane boosters?

I use a Redex additive in my MB. It works fine. Morris is probably better though, at least that is what the MD told me. We also use paraffin in our FWD Model B (not reccommended for your jeep).

I have used a Castrol one in my Hotchkiss which was ok . It comes with or without an octane booster but I didnt notice much difference. It seem expensive but a little goes along way.

Im using the redex one now cause it was all that was available but its difficult to tell if its better as I have just set all the valve clearances and done the points and plugs.

 

cheers

I found a garage just outside Bury St Edmunds which sells leaded fuel, but at £1.45ltr its a bit steep. I might give the Jeep a treat this weekend.
