Westwood rotovator with a aspera engine
« on: May 21, 2018, 11:28 »
Does any one know if this engine, type 0022 HN35 uses unleaded or leaded petrol?
Thanks
Ian

All garden machinery engines are low compression so can take low octane fuel. Most have aluminium cylinder blocks and heads which have hardened valve seats, so can take unleaded fuel. The engines with cast iron valve seats, such as 1970s Sufflolks, have now been running on unleaded for almost 20 years without problems, although they aren't supposed to. So, short answer, yes.
