True. At least one UK member runs 50% AVGAS, which gives him a minor revenue
The European incarnation of the ur-quattro engine at that point is designed to
run on 95 RON - it sayeth so in the microfiche. The filler flap, however, says
'98 RON'. Well, you can't get that here now, even at exorbitant prices. The
current premium 4-star (leaded, still) fuel says '97' on the pump handle.
We _can_ get 'Super Premium Unleaded' at 98 RON - but it's _HIDEOUSLY_
