September 3, 2021 – Friday
As you may have suspected, all of this current hype about “finally eradicating Leaded gas world-wide” is just the latest BS propaganda.
Despite the widely-publicized and celebrated ostensible “ban” on Leaded gasoline for use in passenger vehicles in the U.S, Leaded gasoline has, in reality, been on sale continuously, and is still sold in many U.S. States today! I am working on a post about this.
Of course, as any aviation enthusiast knows, Leaded “Avgas” has been consistently and legally available at airfields everywhere for aircraft to burn up in the skies overhead — but some do not know that it is (and has been) also for sale (legally) — for routine, daily use — to burn in “classic cars”; “farm vehicles”; “go-carts”, and other types of vehicles and combustion engines that were legally “exempted” from that “ban” [and in practical terms, really whatever the buyer chooses to do with it after purchase].
And I can confirm first-hand that you can still purchase Leaded gas at gas stations (at least, in New York, North Carolina and Massachusetts) — based on my own cross-country trip last summer: we personally saw Leaded gas, and Lead additives for gas, available for sale in those states.
If you see Leaded gas for sale at your local gas station this weekend, would you PLEASE take a picture of that for me (two pictures would be great actually – one of the display or pump and a second showing the whole gas station) and send me an e-mail with the location, time and date of the photo – in support of the post I am writing [If it is not available in a dedicated pump, it is often sold in cans by the door of the convenience store part of a gas station – so that’s a good place to start looking]? Thank you so much!
For each of the first 4 people who send me such a set of pictures (it has to be a picture they take this weekend) – I will buy them a set of two Lead-free mugs as a thank you! My e-mail is TamaraRubin@mac.com.
