Anything wrong with Shell gas?
I was checking Les Cooke web-site and found this mentioned at the bottom of the chargers offer:
These parts are racing parts. Use of these parts on your Seadoo void manufacturer warranty. All listed components have been tested and are only suitable for use with 98 octane premium ULP (do not use any type of Shell fuel).
Anybody has more info on this?
Is it related to the quality of additives Shell may use in local Australian market?
Shell is the only source of 95 gas where I am located...

Interesting... however I don't have an answer for you since I'm in the states. We have Shell "V-Power" in my area which is 93 octane. I try to run only that fuel in almost everything I own, with BP as a second option.

Shell V-Power is one of the petter fuels out there if you ask me. That statment made by les cook likely means you need alot stronger fuel then pump fuel!

There is an instruction sheet that comes with the Rotax racing Ecu that states "do not use shell gasoline" That came from Rotax not Les Cooke so maybe shell gas is different over there?

shell adds cleaning agents etc.. to their v power range which are not good for your worked ski motors.
i no longer use shell in my skis at all and my skis have been performing much better since the change.

I used to use BP religiously in both my skis before I tried Shell.. And after running Shell both my skis run way better now than they did on the BP...I get far better milage and performance out of the Shell..On a normal run i would go through a tank of BP..Now on that same run with Shell i have 3 bars left in both my skis...

I am pretty sure all fuels available here in the US have addatives and ethonal in them. I can see how some fuels may work better than others, there are those things you drop in your tank by Fitch that claim to give more power and better mileage, don't know how they do it something about modifying the molecules or some chit like that............mad scientist stuff
