For best performance you will want to use high test, premium high octane fuel.

True, but if that motor has not ben touched mechanically, and is original, then it runs on regular leaded gasoline that they do not make anymore.

You can use ethanol free gas.. Lots of gas stations are selling it now.. WaWa, Texaco, Race Track stations. Marine fuel....

Best choice is ethanol free with mid to hi test gas with octane booster too.
