    What Octane?

    So i tried looking it up here and got different answers so ill ask the question again to be safe. In my 08 RXP-X, what octane should i be running? (87, 89, 91, 93, or something else?)

    And what about my friends 07 RXP and RXT? So far all i have put in mine is 93 and my friend has used mostly 93 but did run 87 in the beginning of his seadoos lives

    Thanx,
    The Godather... Alex

    My X say you can use 87 but it will be down on power,What sucks is so far everywhere i ride you can only get 87.
    I fill it with super on the way out,But cant get super while im out.
    Kinda sucks.
    Guess i can maybe fill a couple of 5 gallon cans and run back to the truck.
    It will be a pain in the ass.
    I wonder if carrying an octane booster would be a good idea.
    Just wanna be sure its safe for our fuel system

    You should be running the highest octane you can get your hands on for the 4-tecs. Similar to cars. If you can't get your hands on anything above 87 grab some octane booster, do the math and it will balance out. Also, look at the ethanol content on the gas you are using.

    I only put 93 in my RXT, you are only looking at a couple of bucks more for 93 than 87.

    Just fill it before and after you ride. That's what I do, you can get a good run on a full tank. If you plan on riding all day then you should probably keep a stock on hand by your trailering vehicle and go back as you need to.

    Out west we run 91 since you can't get 93.
