951 Engine Av Gas vs Race Fuel
I need some opinions... Reading all the Posts on here about how the 951 Engines run hot (especially the DI's) What do you guys run in yours?
Mixture of ?
I just got a 02 RXDI with only 40 hrs on it. It sat up for some time. I filled the tank up with AVGAS and it runs great. I Understand AVGAS Burns much cooler which is why I decided to go with it for now..Knowing that the DI runs pretty hot!
I Run Cam2 110 octane Leaded Race Fuel in my Race quad. And I love the stuff. Never has an issue with it. But thats only a 2 gallon tank. My pocket wont like filling 15gals of race fuel everytime I ride my ski! How about Mixing it 50/50 with avgas?
Im sure many still use pump gas, But the ethanol in the gas these days is destroying anything rubber inside the fuel system! So I dont mind running "decent" Fuel for a slighly higher price.

is your ski stock or modded?i think its more practical to run pump gas on stock ski's.

Mine is Bone stock. But as I stated, I do not mind spending the 30cents extra per gallon to run av fuel to keep the heat down in the DI Cyls. As long as Its ok to run in the engine.

Have you looked into the possibility of marinas that offer fuel with out ethanol? In Oregon we have a couple. Besides, if memory serves me only the 01 RXDI has the premium fuel requirement. So you should be good especially if you are running premium.
