Fuel Catalysts - michael hirons
We are running an unconverted Volvo244GLT 2.3ltr.on Lead replacement petrol.We have been advised that the " Broquet Fuel Catalyst" could possibly resolve the problem of using LRP and improve performance /consumption.Does anyone have any experience of this catalyst and would it be worth installing/ using the "in Tank"version..as we are only doing 3000miles per annum??

See the many previous posts about these devices. Long and short of it is that they do not work. Stick with LRP or preferably super unleaded with an additive endorsed by the federation of historic car clubs.

Without knowing where you live, why not look out the nearest supplier of leaded fuel and stick with that. On 3000 miles a year, the extra cost once unleaded creeps back up is only going to be around £150 a year, less the cost of the additives you would otherwise buy. The more people buy leaded, the stronger the likelihood of it staying available for those of us with older cars that really do run best on leaded. If there isn't a convenient leaded supplier then I agree it is best to play safe and use superunleaded plus additive on the occasions you aren't passing the leaded supplier.

Try www.leadedpetrol.co.uk/list.htm for availability info.

Yep, I totally agree - complete waste of time and money these devices.

Yes, total waste of money.
I run a Triumph 2000, which needs both valve protection and a bit of an octane boost. I have used Ordinary unleaded plus Millers VSP Plus.
Manganese-based additives are the ones clubs endorse, and Millers boosts the octane too. It works out a bit cheaper than LRP.
I have used it for 2 years now, and had no problems. No pinking, performance miles better than LRP, which is a swindle IMHO.
The car performs just as it did in the old high-lead days.
