Maintenance expenses when using leaded and nonleaded gasolines are reported from a 5-year program encompassing over 10 million miles of operation by 64 matched pairs of employee-owned cars. The data are analyzed on a fuel-related basis for those items of maintenance that might be expected to be affected by the presence or absence of lead antiknocks. Year-by-year breakdowns of important costs are presented.
To provide additional information on car operating costs, total maintenance and tire replacement costs are also included. Comparisons are made with previously reported information, and projections regarding the significance of these costs are made for the future.
