Default engine fuel additive

What's the best brand fuel additive you would recommend for my 1960 T-Bird 352 motor or are they all pretty much the same?

Are you looking for an octane booster, cleaner or lead substitute. I started using lead additives in my old Chevy van, since I didn't have the hardened seats installed. I used to tow a boat and after I started using the additive, I never had a problem. There are several available out there.

I've been using Motor Medic Lead Additive , but I have used others and I haven't noticed any differences. It does seem to have gone up in price. It is upwards of $5 for 12 OZ I try to use about 8oz per fill-up of 91 octane ethanol free.

If your willing to spend the $$$$, I think you can buy Aviation fuel at 100 octane and I believe it still has lead in it. Bit pricey, but it depends on how much you drive. Been a while since I've been flying, but I think my specs are still good today. They care more about airplanes falling out of the sky than a car with premature failures.
