Rest assured that when an engine is invented that runs on tap water, that
too will skyrocket in price.

Subject: [Healeys] Dieseling problem
Thanks to the eleven listers who came up with answers and/or suggestions
to my problem with a dieseling engine. Generally speaking the low octane
fuel seems to be the culprit. Unfortunately one can only buy two grades
in this country: the 'normal' grade which is 95 octane and the 'super'
grade which is 98 octane.
Also very unfortunate is the fact that I have to pay seven dollars
ninety three (Yes: $ 7.93!) for every US Gallon of this 98 octane fuel.
And if you would know what the restoration of my BJ8 did cost.....
Why has no-one invented a car engine running on tap water yet?
