    2012 RXTX 260 Pump Gas

    Hey guys, have a problem, The area that I live doesn't have anything higher than 89 in marine gas, but some of the gas stations have 93/94. Would I be ok with that? or is there an additive I should add if i do ethanol gas? I just had a RIVA stage 1 done on mine. Only have 11 hours on ski itself.

    As you know premium is the preferred fuel for our skis. It is common at marinas not to have premium and the fuel they do have is of poor quality due to sitting in tanks for extended periods. If you can trailer your skis to get premium at a local gas station that would be optimum. If not, you can always haul 5 gallon tanks from the gas station. The ski will run on 89 octane but not as strong. Don't run WOT for long periods with questionable fuel. Octane boosters have minimal effect. You are smart to be concerned about this subject.
