Octane rating in Europe is different than the US. 98 in Europe equals about 91 in the USSwedie said:We here in Sweden got 95/98 octane. Maybe that's why our gas is much more expensive than yours?
And btw, with less Octane.. is the polution less?
They still sell it , out by Bithlo. Everybody runs their tank down to almost empty and then gets a quarter tank of race gas before going to the track. It's better makes more hp and reduces the chances of detonation in a forced induction/ nitroused motor.SloPok said:i remember i used to see a gas station (right off of I-4) in orlando that used to sell 104 octane. tho this was about 8-10 years ago, so im not sure if its still there. my uncle used to tell me stories about them syphoning gas from airplanes and running that in there muscle cars too, that would be a trip lol.
this is true, only when your manual says use high octane, if it says use regular and you use super there will be no difference, just like cars.you run a higher grade of gas you are less likly to run into carbon build up problems
Can't tell you about the damage/milage thing but , the higher the octane , the less chance of ping (detonation) . This is what happens when the temp inside the cylinders gets so hot that it preignites the fuel prior to spark. Higher octane fuels are less prone to detonation..Dsims7 said:Solidus,
will that do more harm to your engine? Like running your bike at 50 MPH for 100,100 miles then trying to do an all out cruise at 150 MPH for several hundred miles. The engine is not used to it?
If the bike is used to 91 Octane, then you blast it with 104 Octane at the track (and big difference between 91 and 104) will it cause ping or sputtering problems.
