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

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
