    Its your own choice, but i would say yes you can, ive run older mini`s on Unleaded, not had any problems, they seem to run a bit hotter thats about it!!! Good luck!

    I think the ones with a cat can and cars built after 1989 they can run unleaded. or if it's got high milage. If it don't you can get hardened valves seals put in cost about 80.

    yes all post 89 cars run on unleaded. Infact... all minis will run on unleaded. There is so much crap kicking about in a 80K+ engine itll keep running for the normal length of the engine and by that time your gonna replace it with a post 89 anyway cause the box will start to go first. (listen for a low whine at low speeds).
