RE: Ended up not getting the car, but got this one instead....

I definitely would go with the 95. It needs it, when it was designed gas was 100.

Do you even need the lead additive? Aren't the valves in these engines stainless (meaning they don't need the unleaded fuel)?

That's why I haven't used it. The valves are hardened on my model already, but what would it hurt?

I just wouldn't use lead unless absolutely necessary...something about a cleaner, lead-free fuel makes me sleep easier at night; cleaner environment and all...

It doesn't have lead, its a lead substitute.
