(RareCarMarket.com) – When choosing the type of gas or additives to put in your classic car, it’s important to consider the specific needs of your vehicle and to follow the recommendations of the car’s manufacturer. Here are a few things to consider:

  1. Octane rating: Many classic cars were designed to run on lower octane gasoline, such as regular or mid-grade. Check your car’s owner’s manual or consult with a mechanic to determine the appropriate octane rating for your car.
  2. Additives: Some classic cars may require the use of specific additives, such as lead replacement or fuel stabilizers, to help keep the engine running smoothly and to protect against corrosion.
  3. Ethanol content: Some classic cars may not be able to tolerate gasoline that contains ethanol, a type of alcohol that is commonly added to gasoline to boost octane and reduce emissions. Be sure to choose gasoline that is labeled as “ethanol-free” or “contains no more than 10% ethanol”.
  4. Fuel type: Some classic cars may require a specific type of fuel, such as diesel, propane or natural gas.
  5. Quality of gasoline: Always use gasoline from reputable brands and suppliers, as low-quality gasoline can damage the engine and other parts of the car.

It’s important to note that the specific requirements for your classic car might differ depending on the make, model, year, and condition of the car. It’s best to consult with a mechanic or car experts that specialize in classic cars to ensure that you are using the right type of fuel and additives for your vehicle.
