    Lightbulb Fzr Waverunner running on leaded fuel

    i am getting a yamaha fzr soon and it will be running on leaded fuel as there is no unleaded gas in nigeria . A friend told me i will have to mix oil with the gas if i'm running on leaded... but the fzr is 4 stroke, i thought u only have to do that with a 2 stroke engine. any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    leaded or unleaded makes no diffence harded seats take care of unleaded, do not mix oil will just succeed in fouling plugs

    leaded fuel already has lubricating properties
    it's unleaded that doesn't
    so any engine designed for unleaded will be fine

    I heard "Lead" can clog fuel injectors......Maybe thats why my gas gague on my car says "Unleaded fuel only"




    I know it will kill a O2 sensor quickly

    Lead will throw off an O2 sensor and cause failure. It should not be a problem with injectors.

    It'll clog a catalytic converter in nothing flat!
