If you've got a pre car it's important to find out if it can run on normal (95 octane) unleaded petrol. Tetraethyllead (commonly styled tetraethyl lead), abbreviated TEL, is an organolead compound with the formula (CH 3 CH 2) 4 Pb.

TEL is a petro-fuel additive, first being mixed with gasoline (petrol) beginning in the s as a patented octane rating booster that allowed engine compression to be raised substantially.

This in turn caused increased vehicle performance and Chemical formula: C₈H₂₀Pb. The US didn't tax lead in petrol until the s, then finally banned it as part of Lead in petrol book air legislation, as the country moved down the far side of the environmental Kuznets curve.

Landrigan1 The use of lead as a petrol additive has been a catastrophe for public health. Leaded petrol has caused more exposure to lead than any other source worldwide.

By contaminating air, dust, soil, drinking-water and food crops, it has caused harmfully high human blood lead levels. The lead–crime hypothesis is the proposed link between elevated blood lead levels in children and increased rates of crime, delinquency, and recidivism later in life.

Lead is widely understood to be highly toxic to multiple organs of the body, particularly the brain. Individuals exposed to lead at young ages may be more vulnerable to learning disabilities, decreased I.Q., attention deficit.

The NBS standard was analysed as a quality-control measure each time a number of real petrol samples was to be monitored for lead. The results for 41 determinations carried out on these real samples were g Pb r', with a standard deviation of g r1.

The mean values of blood lead concentrations dropped from 52 to 13 {mu}g/dl and from 20 to {mu}g/dl for the urban and rural trainers, respectively. A highly significant decrease in blood lead levels was found and was mainly attributable to the reduction in the petrol lead levels.

Lead poisoning occurs when lead builds up in the body, often over months or years. Even small amounts of lead can cause serious health problems.

Children younger than 6 years are especially vulnerable to lead poisoning, which can severely affect mental and physical development. At very high levels, lead poisoning can be fatal.
