    What Fuel do you run?

    I'm using a branded (by Shell I think) sold by Caltex as Vortex 98 RON Unleaded in my ski, does anyone have any other recomendations?

    I thinking of trying some BP Ultimate which is 100 RON according to BP's Webpage. Should I expect any performance gain?

    I'm quite confused as to RON being an across the board standard (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Octane_rating )

    What does the sticker on your 250 recomend? my one says anything above 95RON.

    Higher octane than what is recommeded octane wont help any on a stock ski, may actually slow it down.

    I've run full tanks of 100 and 110 and I get zero difference.
