Default Leaded Gas in PI

So I buy my first gasoline powered vehicle here in the PI the other day. My other vehicles have been diesels. It is a Honda scooter with a catalytic converter.

The guy at the Honda dealer tells me to make sure to put in Unleaded gas. I say "yeah ok, isn't all gas unleaded" and he says no.

I get to the gas station and my friends following me back from the dealer tell me " don't put in premium it has lead, use the one next to it". I'm like WTF, ok I do what they say.

I get back home and do some searching and Leaded gas was banned in the PI in like 1999.

So here is just another myth here in the PI that will never go away. I swear I am going to lose it one day.
