    Minimum 90 octane gas.

    The manual states I need a minimum of 90 octane gas but just checking marinas websites I haven't seen many that carry over 89. On a long ride where you will have to get fuel on the water what do you do? Maybe I'm just not seeing that marinas do carry premium gas and they do. Can you used some sort of octane booster in a can? Not even sure if that stuff really works though.

    Fill up with 93 octane on land and when you get to about a half tank refill on the water with 89.....thats one disadvantage of a high performance ski if you cant get the right fuel for the ski on the water...or stay out of the boost if you have to run a lower octane fuel...

    If you can't get over 89 oct. then keep it below 6000 rpms 45-50 mph till you get back to the dock and gas on land,this is not the time to push the ski to its limits ...play it safe

    Octane boosters... never used one ,they say Torco's the real deal though..
