I swear Lead Replacement Fluid is the old Upper Cylinder Lube that gas stations sold when I was a kid. Australians would be familiar with Redex Uper Cylinder Lube that we added to gasoline when filling the gas tank. Father had a gas station and it was one squirt per gallon at around a penny or so per squirt!

(How is my US accent - didn't use "petrol" once! :lol: )

Charles, how can you - lead sinkers in the gas tank are illegal!!! :lol: :lol:
I had a problem with rust in the tank of my E Type (XKE) Jaguar. After a couple of years and multiple cleaning the fuel filter, the tank and fuel are totally clean, thanks to half a dozen 3/8" lead fishing sinkers!
