Fuel additive

Post by Paul123 on Fri Jan 30 2015, 20:22

Hi, I am fairly new to this forum and to stationary engines.
I now have my lister D running great but had a train of thought....do you need to use lead additive to modern unleaded fuel for old Lister engines like you do with old cars to stop burning the valve guides? And if you don't why?
As they say if you don't ask you don't learn!

No additives needed, lead wasn't in petrol anyway when 'our' engines were developed. They also don't get as hot as a vehicle engine, just use ordinary unleaded and all will be fine.

Thanks Pete, I've pondered that question for some time, I did think engine temperature / Rev speed had something to do with it
