I can't say that I've ever used an octane booster. I've used a lead substitute to help lubricate the valves and I've used a fuel stabilizer in the winter when the car is not being used. I don't think...

They are not available new. If you were to need one you would either have to find a used one or modify a generic one to fit.

You can't go by looks. It should say vented or non-vented. A non-vented cap can cause pressure to build up and can also cause a vacuum effect which would lead to fuel starvation. Whether it's the...

With Hagerty you contact them and they arrange to have the truck sent out (guaranteed flatbed) and no money changes hands. I think they have three different service levels.
