So, the lead just accumulates in the engine until you have huge blobs of lead around the ports, never to leave the exhaust pipe!!!! Where did you read this baloney?????

I agree with Peter on the toxicity of TEL. The stuff is readily absorbed by the skin. I would carefully look at the MSDS before using this product.
