The lead or lead substitute mostly helps when driving fast and hot, or under other heavy load conditions. That being said, when I can afford it I mix in about a quarter of a tank of 110 octane leaded racing fuel. That cushions the valve seats, and gets the octane up around 95-97, where it really belongs.
