FBHVC approves TetraBOOST - genuine lead additive

The FBHVC (Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs) has issued its seal of approval to TetraBOOST - the unique lead fuel additive and octane booster. The Federation states that “it has now given its approval to TetraBOOST after undertaking detailed chemical analysis. This showed that when added to unleaded petrol at the recommended rate TetraBOOST provides the same amount of lead as that in BS4040 pump fuel and will, therefore, give the same level of protection against valve seat recession.” This news will be particularly welcome to the classic car movement, bearing in mind the current withdrawal of LRP and the number of garages giving up the sale of leaded pump fuel.
