If I determine that the rediculous amount that is charged for premium at the pumps does not make up for the increase in fuel economy, why am I called a skinflint or cheapskate?

I'll save my money, and buy a detergent every once and a while. To no ill effect on the engine or components.

Aviation fuel is 100 low lead and there are conversion that can be made for using auto gas.
