Well, just to finish the "test", I'm not 100% sure but I believe I picked this up in the late 80's (say between 1986 and 1988). That would be about right for the avg price of unleaded fuel back then before it dropped in the late 80s. Amazing that 20 years later it is working great with nothing more than regular cleanings. I don't think I've fired the thing up in over 10+ years but it worked great for the cookout before the Rapids game last Sunday
