Where can i get a LOT and CHEAP lead replacement for a long trip.

I'm traveling through the Kimberley’s and around the gulf from Borroloola, burketown to Normanton. There’s not going to be many places with LEAD petrol is there? so i'll need to by a lot be for i go. if any one knows where to get some cheap I’d appreciate it.

thanks

lead petrol hasnt been available for years (in wa at least) lrp is just premium unleaded with something (Iforget what) as a lubricant it is awfull stuff and will foul your sparkplugs with round town driving. Havnt driven an old style petrol since I sold my 78 nissan camper in 2000. most cars will run on unleaded at a pinch but for better performance add octane booster and cylinder lube to the ulp, stocks of which should be available from your auto parts dealer

I have a 1985 landcruiser that originally ran on lead petrol , but can run on unleaded ,

however I add REDEX lead replacement fluid available from REPCO shops .

It works out at 2 cents a litre and I think the car runs better , pings less I know

LRP hasn't been available here in Peterborugh for some months now. I bought 2 litres Upper cylinder lube juice for $20 and add 1ml per litre of unleaded fuel. The bottle should last me for years. This for my Valiant which I only drive every now and then. My Nissan runs on unleaded.

Cheers
