re hemmjo's note on octane.
It's been a l-o-n-g time since [motorcycling] octane was considered during fuel purchase. No distracting female attendants either.
So yes I can see running super in a VW they ran better and got fetter fuel millage.
Just like now I will only run Premium in all of my small engines and my old 8n tractor it doesn't do much for the old tractor but sure helps the carburetors last longer in the small engines. With the exception of my chain saws in those I will only run that $31.00 a gallon fully stabilized properly mixed 2 cycle fuel
I think this was somewhat of a stunt, maybe like the early 1900s version of hamming it up for Instagram. Right?Transporting logs in Northern Michigan 1908.

I have my doubts that two horses could move that load! Might of loaded it that big just for the photo op.
My Dad remembered loading logs with horses back in the 30s. (rolled on to the wagon using ramps with ropes going over the trailer) He said a local hauler had a pair of horses that were so well trained, the owner could have them easily move the log 1/2 an inch if needed.

Even it is were balsa if those poor animals ever got that sled moving they better never slow down because it would run them over.
