Recerntly when we were in Richtersveldt with oom Kobus' 4,5 GRX Patrol aka UNGILI, it came up which octane to put in
I had a quick peek at the NAAMSA site today and here is what it says:

Vir die 4.5 Patrol gebruik jy 93 petrol in areas wat 93 en 95 petrol het en in die areas wat 95 en 98 petrol het gebruik jy die 95 petrol! :thumbup:

So lyk Uncle M se prentjie meer verstaanbaar...

Soos ek lees is dit standaard 93 in die binneland en 95 by die kus vir my...

Is 93 "leaded" en 95 "unleaded"? of is alby "unleaded"? :think:

Albei is teoreties beskikbaar in "unleaded" en LRP, maar meestal is dit deesdae net unleaded.

Mens kan lankal nie meer "leaded" petrol koop nie.
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

Daar is nie meer lood in brandstof nie Fanus so alle brandstof is tegnies "unleaded"

Ek het errens gelees dat die enigste rede hoekom "nuwe" voertuie nie brandstof met lood kan gebruik nie, is agv die "catalytic converter". Is dit so?
m.a.w n voertuig wat nie 'n cat op het nie sal alby kan gebruik? (dis nou as mens nog brandstof met lood gekry het)...
