Hello,

Can I use unleaded fuel in my 1989 Esprit Turbo?

Many thanks

Any vehicle that contains a catalytic converter MUST use unleaded fuel. Leaded fuel, or even lead additive WILL destroy a catalytic converter.

Yes, I know freshcut, but my car doesn't have a catalytic converter ( carbs...)

even with carbs it could still have a cat, it just likely wouldn't have an O2 sensor. :thumbup: I guess I just assumed (wrongly in this case) that it was stock and still had the cat installed, forgetting that some countries aren't as ridiculous as the US when requiring power robbing emission equipment.
