    Av gas has lead in it. So Yes.

    Av gas is 100 low lead but still has a ton of lead in it. It is low lead compared to 100/130 Av gas of the past.

    So if I want to try a fuel besides pump gas I should get racing fuel?

    An UNLEADED racing fuel.
    You can run the O2 long enough to tune. Just be aware that its life is limited and you will need to replace it at some point. If you are think if using it as a closed loop sensor, then you are stuck with something that is unleaded.

    And compared to Chevron White pump. But you may not be old enough to remember that rocket fuel

    YES! just think about the term. AVIATION FUEL. It is designed to run at an altitude much higher than the sensor is calibrated for. Therefore the signal from the O2 sensor will drive the computer nuts then fail! Luckily they take a puke before the computer does!

    ol guy, the sensor doesn't care what fuel is being used. O2 sensors aren't calibrated to altitude.
    The sensor will read 100LL just fine while it works. You could run unleaded AV alll day liong with a sensor and it would never know the difference if it was pump gas or not. Same with using E85. Same sensor, no calibratiion except the standard "free air" calibration you have to perform regardless the fuel.

    Agreed, with a w/b after market sensor you can get away with more but if the O/P was running a standard sensor (which I assume) as with your'e uncle anything out of the parameter of the sensor"s limits will kill it. Yes they do care about fuel being used if it is a stock calibrated sensor being used.

    The cool kids use air/fuel ratio sensors.

    The sensor is a sensor. There is no such thing as "a stock" sensor. Its either a WB heated or non heated. the sensor does not care about the fuel itself. Meth, ethanol, E85, race unleaded, pump unleaded. makes no difference to the sensor.

    Do you read for gas or methanol?
