But will it run on unleaded gas?

I know Steve is joking, but there's one product name that bugs me every time I see it--"UNleaded gas." EEXCUUUUSE ME!! Gas doesn't come leaded, it's add to it, so gas is NOT "UNleaded" it's just "Non-leaded." But I know I will never win this one, just had to speak my mind.
Back to the previous programming, This was only a public service announcement; if it had been a real crises, further information would have been given. . .
:-)
Keep Calm and Carry On! NO!!! Run like Hell, the end is here!!!!!

I had always heard the ran all different fuels sources but have never tried anything just gas. I do try to buy what is advertised as 100 percent gasoline. Tim

I always figured that the Model T was designed to run on gasoline but because of variability in what was available it could be tuned one way or another to run on just about any crap you put in it.

And while we're on the subject, why do gas stations call regular gas unleaded, when the other grades also have no lead? The lead went away decades ago, so I think it's safe to call regular gas regular now.

I believe Wikipedia and an automotive radio talk show host need to be bombarded with this article.

Or just just let the uneducated masses remain just so.
