Super unleaded?

Hi all - when I was last over touring I couldn't find any garages selling SU, I presume that is still the case?
Thanks

Joe,
Topaz garages might be your best bet?

Joe90 you mean 97RON or above for old carburettor cars that need four star equivalent to prevent pinking right?

I don't think fuel cleaner additives would help so much in that case?

A very gentle correction Gorie!
Do they not run OK on 95?

I need a minimum of 97 RON otherwise it (1975 spider) pinks because it was designed to run on 5 star, if I retard the timing it will run OK on 95 RON but then I lose power and mpg, I'm going to use Millers octane boost to make unleaded up to 97 RON as nowhere in the South sells SU unfortunately
