Default My understanding is yes.

If you run leaded for too long, you will foul the O2 sensors(?), but it takes a while.

Default Not immediately.

A friend has been running leaded in his dragster Rabbit for a while now, sensors still OK.

Default I was told that the old school O2 sensors yes, but not so much the new O2 sensors.

However i would not recommend to run leaded as a day to day gas, the o2s will die eventually.

Default i thought leaded gas could mess up your injectors too?

one of my good buddies(who is a car expert) told me they destroy cats, and could mess up your o2's and your fuel injectors, after i was going to fill up with some 110 leaded at the track but then decided not to.

it just sucks that the highest unleaded octane is like 104

Default No. Leaded gas cannot hurt your injectors
