Can someone let me know if the Jalpa can run on unleaded out of the box or whether the valve seats would need upgrading?

Thanks

you can use unleaded fuel without problems, 95 european octane is sufficient.

Raymond....in the US max pump octane in our area is 93. Would you recomend using a octane boast?
:eek: OMG that sounds like horse manure! ;)


I just filled up my Countach with Optimax (98 RON) :cool:

US octane and european are not identical, perhaps John can help you.

Also the Countach runs with 95 octane as well as with 98, save your money...
Also the Countach needs no lead additives.

I use 92 to 94 ... whatever I can get my hands on and I have no problems with my current or past Jalpa knocking and no lack of performance either.

I do not use octane booster.
