Havn't tried it yet.
My old man told me once him and a friend did a half half mix of reg and av in an old cortina , it apparently ran hard for 30 odd minutes ,sounded like and ran like an 8 ( just a standard 250 ) ,it then went pop , upon lifting the bonnet dad said the block was glowing bright red and the pop was the rocker cover , it had blown off under pressure and ripped all the anchor bolts out of the head
That old TE never did drive again
