In 1919, C.F. Kettering and T. Midgley, Jr. began a systematic search into the cause and prevention of engine knock. They determined that knock could be suppressed by chemical additives to motor fuel. Some 143 knock suppressers were tested. The most remarkable and effective antiknock compound was tetraethyl lead (TEL). Even to this date, after thousands of preparations have been tested, extensive research has failed to turn up any other antiknock compound with the effectiveness of tetraethyl lead for its one-two punch of antiknock or octane boost, and lubrication of valve seats and valve stems.
The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture and the Environmental Protection Agency conducted a joint research project that cost nearly a million dollars to determine the "Effect of Low Levels of Lead and Alternative Additives on Engines Designed to Operate on Leaded Gasoline." The summary report was sent to the President and Congress in 1987. It stated that "...no additives have been identified that are perfect substitutes for lead" There are over 70 years of unmatched research, experience and performance with lead in gasoline NOTHING WORKS LIKE LEAD!
The octane number assigned to a motor fuel is a measure of its resistance to premature detonation. The higher the number the less it will "knock" or self detonate. Two reference fuels are used to determine the "knock" or octane number. One is isooctane and is very "knock" resistant. In testing it is given the octane number "100". N-heptane is the other reference fuel because it "knocks" excessively. It is given the test number of "O". When you purchase a motor fuel that has an octane number of "90", it performs like a blend of 90% isooctane and 10% N-heptane.
There are two kinds of "knock" tests commonly used. One is when a test engine is at "rest" and is called "Research" octane number and is referred to as "R". The other is when a test engine is under stress as though you were driving with a load or "motoring" down a highway. It is referred to as “M”. To satisfy "rest" and "motoring" conditions you simply average or add both together and divide by 2, hence the reference of R+M/2. This averaged number the buyer sees when he pulls into the service station.
Gasoline is a varying blend of, among other things, motor alkylate, naphthalenes or reformate, and aromatics. One gasoline may have a blend stock of up to 50% alkylate whereas another gasoline may have only 10% alkylate. There can even be a difference in batches from the same manufacturer. In general, the higher the alkylate content of the base gas, the better effect TEL has as an antiknock agent or octane booster. Because of these differences, the antiknock or octane response of a particular gasoline to tetraethyl lead may vary.
Even though the octane response may vary, what may be as or more important but is much less obvious or well known to the general public is that the lubricating effect of TEL on the valve seats and stems remains the same. The same EPA report mentioned earlier indicates that the minimum amount of lead required to provide enough lubrication to prevent damage to valve seats in the operation of engines designed for leaded gasoline is 0.1 grams per gallon. In this same report one of the EPA's test engines running on unleaded fuel had to be shut down because of engine damage after only 71 hours of operation. Some experts testified to the EPA that there should be two to three times more lead to provide needed protection. Some gasoline's in the 60's and 70's had as much as 4 full grams of lead per gallon. The maximum amount of lead now allowed by the EPA to be dispensed out of a nozzle to a consumer is 0.1 grams of lead per gallon. There is 40 times less lead now in gasoline than was present in some gasoline's in the past. Rich Koziowski, EPA enforcement chief was quoted in "Oil Week" (November 7, 1988) stating that "No Federal Law prevents consumers from adding after-market lead to gasoline in any concentration." Individuals are free to add as much lead as necessary to meet their individual needs. Even if there were no octane increase from the use of tetraethyl lead, there is significant need for its internal engine lubrication. In the Federal Register, Vol. 53, No. 195, Friday, October 7, 1988, the availability of the above EPA report Published. As a part of the summary of the report it states that, "The USDA commented the EPA should (1) not ban lead gasoline; (2) take steps necessary to assure that companies continue to sell leaded gasoline…..; (3) require a range of 0.10 - 0.15 grams of lead in each gallon of leaded gasoline.…."

What Is It?
100% TETRAETHYL LEAD (TEL) activant gasoline additive treatment. Designed to Convert unleaded gasoline into HIGH OCTANE LEADED GASOLINE. Since 1921, LEAD bas been the only efficient additive that:
1. BOOSTS OCTANE
2. ELIMINATES ENGINE KNOCK
3. PROTECTS VALVES AND VALVE GUIDES.
Only with LEAD can you expect the highest performance in these 3 crucial areas.
OCTANE SUPREME IS DIFFERENT FROM ALL OTHER GAS ADDITIVES. Our product has 59.4 grams of (TEL) LEAD per gallon and PROVIDES A REAL OCTANE BOOST. No other manufacturers additives add OCTANE + LEAD. With OCTANE SUPREME you just add the proper amount of our additive to your choice of unleaded gasoline. Automatically, you increase octane, and provide proven valve protection.
SUBSTITUTES DO NOT WORK AND DO NOT ADD OCTANE!
In EPA hearings held in June 1978, and October 1988, and many EPA and USDA officers were openly skeptical about test procedures used by companies to prove the performance value of their SUBSTITUTE lead products. In fact, after the EPA and USDA conducted their own test, they found that LEAD was far superior to every substitute tested.
IS IT LEGAL FOR ME TO ADD LEAD TO GASOLINE ?
OCTANE SUPREME is EPA registered as required under
Tide 40 Section 79:20. (California, Marine Use Only)

PRODUCT PERFORMANCE INFORMATION
On February 2, 1923, the first gallon of gasoline improved by tetraethyl lead (TEL) was sold to a venturesome motorist in Dayton, Ohio. Since that time, billions of gallons of leaded gasoline have been marketed in the United States.
Prior to and without the use of tetraethyl lead as an additive to gasoline, part of the fuel mixture in the internal combustion engine had a tendency to explode before it was ignited by the spark plug. This premature or uncontrolled detonation occurs before the piston is ready to be pushed down on its power stroke. This causes a hard metallic rap sound on the piston. This rap sound is called "knock" or ."ping" and is happening at the wrong time and place. It is bad for your engine. It is annoying, fuel wasting, power robbing, counterproductive, and potentially damaging at all engine speeds and loads. It will cause engine temperature to rise and place increased stress on cooling. It creates a harmful increase in internal pressure. It can cause piston and ring damage and severe stress on engine bearings. Extreme knock can melt holes in pistons.
In addition to increasing gasoline octane quality, lead provides a critical wear-reducing function by depositing a thin, protective layer of lead oxides on valve seat surfaces. Without this protection, valve seats can wear or recede into the cylinder head, resulting in a loss of power and fuel economy. Eventually, THE ENGINE WILL FAIL to operate after the valves no longer seal effectively. At this stage, THE CYLINDER HEAD WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO BE REPLACED. In the case of extreme seat recession, weakening of the casting may result in breakage of the cylinder head and potential damage to the engine block, clearly an expensive situation.
Add .6 (sixth tenths) of an ounce of OCTANE SUPREME per gallon of unleaded gasoline. 3 ounces to 5 gallons, 6 ounces to 10 gallons, 9 ounces to 15 gallons, 12 ounces to 20 gallons, 30 ounces to 50 gallons, 60 ounces to 100 gallons of unleaded gasoline. This mixture automatically increases the octane of the gasoline 2 points and provides the minimum EPA test amount of .1 grams of lead per gallon for valve protection. Twelve ounces of OCTANE SUPREME at this mixture will yield 20 gallons of economy LEADED gasoline.
Add 1 ounce of OCTANE SUPREME per gallon of super unleaded gasoline. You will have increased the octane of the super unleaded gasoline by 3 points, and will have .172 grams of tetraethyl lead per gallon. This amount of tetraethyl lead will prevent valve recession and those classic high compression engines will really appreciate the octane boost. 1 quart of OCTANE SUPREME at this mixture will yield 32 gallons of CLASSIC HIGH OCTANE LEADED GASOLINE.
Add 4 ounces of OCTANE SUPREME per gallon of super unleaded gasoline. This mixture automatically increases the octane (R+M/2 method) 10 points and provides .688 grams of lead per gallon for valve protection. One quart of OCTANE SUPREME at this mixture will yield 8 gallons of PERFORMANCE HIGH OCTANE LEADED GASOLINE.
Mix 18 ounces of OCTANE SUPREME with 1 gallon of super unleaded gasoline and raise the octane of your gasoline by 16 points!
