Do these old Gilsons run on unleaded gas? Or should I use an additive?

I add Marvel Mystery Oil(MMO) to the fuel of all my engines. It does some of the same as lead used to and it does extra. It may be okay with out the lead but, MMO is really cheap insurance and it cleans the combustion chamber and protects the fuel system from corrosion. Good Luck, Rick

My M/W 16 has run unleaded fuel for the last 30 years with no problems.
