    SVHO Fuel type????

    Hello eveyone, can you still run a SVHO on 89/87 octane if you have to without harming anything?

    I wouldn't recommend it. These SVHO engines are running higher boost pressures. Lower grade fuel could/would be detrimental.

    What are people doing in areas that don't carry 91+ octane? I just did a 600 mile trip and a few people had the SVHO's and they were putting in octane booster. I have heard not to do that.

    I always use land gas 93 on my old SHO and my new RXPX260! No Problems! Make sure its less than 10%! I carry couple 5 gallons gas cans!

    I know here in the midwest, most of our marinas only carry 89. I know I will not be carrying gallons of gas with me each ride, so I guess a SVHO is out of the question.

    I know guys that carry torco booster so they can use rec 90 at the marinas with modded ski's. They have no issues with it. Just be sure of the booster you are using. Torco gives you an accurate chart for mixing to get the octane rating you need

    So, I am surprised Yamaha did not make the ski have a minimum rating fuel rating like Seadoo, especially with the SVHO Cruiser. Honestly, if I could find a way to get around the premium gas, I would buy one. I looked up the Torco and its not cheap and just think it would be to much of a hassle to add all the time.

    They didn't because of the boost the stock svho can produce. you realize without a limiter this ski is much faster than the sea doo. If you want low octane get SHO.

    This was exactly the reason I just bought a 2013 FZR instead of the '14 a few weeks ago. Luckily they still had one left.
