Good ol'e avgas was great too, but it's at $4.83 ;-)

I just get concerned sometimes knowing the new fuel is not the same as old, and not wanting to damage the engine. There's a steep hill nearby where I will play w/ timing and carb adjustments, test drive and have everything running perfect for the moment using Chevron Premium w/ lead additive every 4th tank or so. But then, I'll grab some Union 76 Premium along the way and the car will ping & hesitate etc... until I go back to Chevron. I notice it alot more on the 351C ('70 Mach) for some reason...
