Are you implying that unleaded gasoline is environmentally less
sound than leaded because of higher production of aromatic
polycyclics? That would be an interesting assertion -- I know
nothing about it myself.

This is correct. Unleaded petrol without a catalytic converter is
worse than leaded petrol in a normal car. With a properly working
catalytic converter it is better.

However Diesel is worse than both from the point of view of
particulates.
