As far as I am lead to believe there is no such thing as an unleaded conversion unless the motor is more than 40 years old. Alloy heads on VW's were designed to run unleaded as a lot of countries had it long before we did in Australia.

Someone will confirm the year when hardened valve seats were first used.

We have never used a fuel additive in the ten years we have owned VW's, and that includes a 1970 beetle and a 1975 bus.

The additive is cheap if you buy a big bottle. Try say repco, maybe even kmart or something...

When I bought my Beetle I was using the additive... then my mechanic said do NOT use it, just use PULP. I don't have half as many mechanical probs as I did have, and PBB drives soooo much smoother and quicker now! :cool:

Aha, now we have a bit more info.

Pre 1967 I am uncertain about, but any 1968 onwards heads are fine. If you have later heads on your motor you will be fine.

You should be fine without additive. Mine's not a '64 Bug, but it runs much more smoothly on PULP (loves the Optimax Extreme! ;)) and I get a few extra miles out of a tank too.
