Best fuel to use for bikes?

59442 Views 202 Replies 63 Participants Last post by  cruizin
So boys and girls, just wondering what people put in their bikes and why? Iv been putting 95 in my 250 for the past couple of months now, have a feeling it might have clogged up the fuel injectors. But that's probably from long term use lol
Anywho, tried the 98 and noticed a bit of lag on the bike, wasn't pinging like on the 95... Might try it again next time fill up!
Thoughts? :D

This is an interesting link. It pertains to cars in Australia so check the wiki link for the respective octane numbers for your country. It is basically a comparison on how much further milage you can obtain using different octane fuels...


There are lots of clear answers out there, and people still get things wrong. That's the whole point of debate/discussion. Some people still deny climate-change or the efficacy of vaccines. They still think they're on to something, but it's hoped that debate/facts can sway them. Simply closing communication doesn't fix those who get it wrong, and who cares if people get confused? People get confused by the facts on a daily basis. That's why it's important to understand epistemology and be a critical-thinker.
Epistemology (from Greek, epistēmē, meaning "knowledge, understanding", and, logos, meaning "study of") is the branch of philosophy concerned with the nature and scope of knowledge and is also referred to as "theory of knowledge". It questions what knowledge is and how it can be acquired, and the extent to which knowledge pertinent to any given subject or entity can be acquired.

(from Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epistemology)

I like this word already!:)
So, nobody else is using diesel? Kidding. Don't use diesel. Bad joke. :D
Did you mention diesel? Here's more fuel for the fire! I've pinged this fuel economy comparison video before so check it out...Turbo diesel bike for the future perhaps...

Funny this. A guy came to the shop to pick up his bike from winter storage, rode around the corner and accidently filled up with diesel. 5 mins later we get a call bike won't start. 2 hours later after draining the tank and running it a few times all was back to normal.
Moral of the story is if you put diesel in we will laugh at you.
Just curious but he didn't by any chance happen to be riding around in a spacesuit getup did he?...:detectivesmilie:

Hey I've made some dumb mistakes, but no diesel in a bike. Yet. :blink:
Ha! Ha! I was only busting your balls, mate! Nothing serious! Actually, I knew a woman who did it quite a long time ago with an old car. I'm not sure how she even managed it. Needless to say, she didn't get very far...:roll2smilie:

In Western Australia, fuel stations are largely self-serve. I like it like that...:)
