when did we get rid of lead in Gasoline?

    Leaded gasoline was slowly phased out after the EPA issued reduction standards in 1973. At that point, the average lead content was 2-3 grams per gallon. By 1986, the number dropped to 1/10 of a gram per gallon. The Clean Air Act completely banned the sale of leaded fuel, effective January 1, 1996. However, “fuel containing lead may continue to be sold for off-road uses, including aircraft, racing cars, farm equipment, and marine engines.”
