Fuel Octane Rating for Stock Blue 308?

I've got a stock blue 308 in a WB - 9.2:1 compression ratio iaw published literature - I've been using PULP 98 Octane in it - expensive...do I need to do this ? - I just put around - it's not a performance car...I've had difficulty finding a reliable source of info re what to use - will 91 or 95 Octane be ok for a 9.2 engine - what about E10? What are others using with acceptable results and can anyone point to a good reference source?

New to old cars: should i go all gas

Hi All

I need to seek some advise.
I have just acquired a 1984 WB panelvan, mostly in original condition, 3.3L blue motor, 3 speed Auto on column.
Just picked van up after first road worthy attempt. Van is dual fuel, gas and petrol. Runs rough on petrol, good on gas.
Has almost all the emission fitting missing.
Speaking with mechanic, I asked is it better to go Gas only, no need for emission fittings. Would need to remove all petrol tank, pump, hoses etc.

HK Holden Sedan Delivery...

This came up in my twitter feed today so I thought why not put it up again as it looks so good. [it's been on here before].

It was made from a ute and pieces of a van and a station wagon.

It's still registered so it must be around somewhere.

HG Wagon

I guys, there was a HG Wagon posted on here that was listed on ebay for sale, nice car and the auction finished at $36 600, with reserve not met, anyway the owners listed it on gumtree for $62 000. Now as much as it is a nice car, and you will never find another like it, that to me is a lot of money. But I guess each to his own.
Cheers,
Dave
