I'm just saying???
« on: September 11, 2017, 12:44:12 AM »
Keep in mind that I haven't been able to ride for a long period...So I got the bike out today it needed fuel...Get to the gas station, I'm putting 93* in and I look up at the pump and it's going over $11.50, stopped at an even $12.00...Never looked at the price per gal until I got home $3.18...Not a cheap skate but these oil company's can kiss my :moon:!!!

Why are you running 93 octane? 87-89 is optimally better. The truth is that the lower octane fuels have better, more optimized burn rate than higher octane fuels on the stock compression engines. You are doing nothing more than throwing hard earned cash away if you do not have a high compression ratio engine. This has been proven here many times over throughout the years. Unless you go into the engine and change components,,, stick with the lower octane fuels, save a buck and get better overall gas mileage.

Agree!  I made the mistake of not filling up before leaving my daughter's home in Oxnard and had to fill up in Gorman, on the Grapevine leaving the L.A. Area.  Price was $4.19 a gallon!!!!
