Hey guys, first post. Was recommended to get on the forum by a friend. Really have enjoyed reading through some stuff. Hope to be on here often.
I'm in college and just bought my first bass boat, it's an old ranger. I've got a question specifically about the engine: it's a 1983 140HP Johnson Seahorse. It came with the original owners manual, and the manual specifically states to use leaded gas only, and that lead free gas should not be substituted. Does this mean I need to be adding lead substitute to the gas that I'm putting in the tank? Hopefully this isn't a dumb question, but I can't seem to find exactly the answer anywhere else. Right now I've only ran one tank of 93 octane unleaded gas from the pump with seafoam through it. It seemed to run pretty well? Any help would be appreciated. This is the first boat motor I've owned so go easy! Thanks!
