    Yes! All thats required is 91, but i recommend 92 or 93 if you can get it.

    Are you serious? Your gas station only has 89 or 104?

    The problem is fuel with ultra-high octane has additives that slow down the flame front during the combustion process. The flame front gets so slow that the engine is now running too rich. Being overly rich takes away horsepower. So here you are, slowing down the flame front and getting rid of detonation, at the expense of losing horsepower. With that said, higher octane fuel has no place in a stock engine.

    im pretty sure i use 98 in mine, im looking for 100, but its ard to find

    ohh and it runs great, i hit 112km/h (claimed speed) at about 7800rmp i think, the lever is roughly 1cm off full throttle, when the front compartment is full and tank is nearly full

    Shift, the octane ratings are different in States to ours.Our 98 is equivalant to their 93. The same rules apply though in that our 100+ octane or race gas will slow your ski down also.
