Unleaded Gas Unavailable In Canada DETROIT (AP) Americans driving new cars into Canning fall adu this fall may have trouble finding fuel. Unleaded gasoline, required for 1975-model cars sold in the U.S., will be scarce north of the border, especially off main tourist routes. Canada's Industry Department says about a third of the brand-name gas stations in urban areas will have unleaded fuel available this October, but only one in eight stations in ru ral areas will offer it. Unleaded gas is required for the catalytic converter system used on most American '1975- jnodel cars to control exhaust emissions. The one hopeful sign for prospective tourists is that Detroit mechanics say a few tankfuls of leaded gas will not ruin the converter. The industry department estimates unleaded gas sales in Canada will account for just 2.5 per ent of the total sold in the country in 1974, and less than 7.5 per cent in 1975. The Canadian Automobile Association reports that only Shell stations along Highway 401. the main cast-west highway from Detroit to Toronto and Montreal, have unleaded gasoline now. Other stations along the route indicate they are planning to get it, but won't say when. Ford, Chrysler and American Motors hnve not put the converters on their cars sold in Canada. General Motors will make them optional. Ford officials said the decision not to equip its Canadian cars with the converter was made because of the unavailability of the fuel. Leaded gasoline will not hurt the engine on a car with a catalytic converter, but it will eventually ruin the converter, estimated to cost between $110 and $150.
