    Octane? Brand?... What are you running??

    So Yamaha says we should run 87 I have personally been running 89 Race Trac brand ( when I usually run down at the keys ) 89 BP (when I go to the Beach) This past weekend when i was riding down to key west i stopped at a marina and pumped 90 no ethanol (that's all they had). So what octane and brands are you guys running ??

    On my ski (mods in sig) I run 87. Usually Shell gas and always 10% ethanol because that is all they sell here in MA. IMO, there is no need to run anything more than 87 on a stock or lightly modded ski. Once you push boost and rpms, then you need to step up the octane.

    I run regular 87 octane in my stock ski, we only have one station around here that sells 10% ethanol (Kroger).

    Anything more than 87 is a waste if your not raising boost so...........run 87 and enjoy it

    87 octane Shell for the Yamahas; and that's too dang expensive as it is!
    The RXT's require higher octane.

    I run BP super in all my toys and car. It dosen`t brake down as fast as 87 octane and I feel it burns cleaner. For .30 cents more per gallon its only a couple of dollars more to fill.
