The unleaded - part 2

More about lead. BTW - if the gas is unleaded, and no leaded gas is available, why not just call it gasoline.
The unleaded, friday

So what about lead?
“Lead is a dense, corrosion-resistant, bluish-grey metallic element, and is the heaviest stable element. Lead was one of the first known metals and has been used for at least 5,000 years. The early uses of lead included building materials, pigments for glazing ceramics and pipes for transporting water. Today’s major use of lead is in lead-acid storage batteries”
