This might be a bit of a silly question. However what type of fuel would be recommended for a 76 vette? Pretty sure it's got the L-48 motor. Regular? Or would it need Premium? I know the C5 was premium, however not sure with older vette's.

Thank you!

:cheers:

Regular unleaded for your '76.

You would not see any advantages using premium...except your money leaves you faster. LOL.

:agree: I run regular in my 77'. I was always told that the higher the compression, the more octane you need.

If the engine is stock then regular is just fine. I run it all day in my nova. The low compression smog engines do not need the octane.
