dchawk81 Don't know if it's because I ran 93 or because I behaved myself, but I got this going to the dentist on Tuesday. It was about 40% interstate highway, 40% two lane state road with little traffic, 15% city/suburban, and 5% rural back roads.

sailor No problem, it's quicker & easier than one long hose to drag over the frame or toss through underneath.

One large stop in Maine I remember uses vary long hoses to drag around the front, but they fuel it for you - that way the hoses don't end up getting run over.

Turn it on at the main pump first, and remember NOT to turn that one off until after you're done with the satellite (main shuts both down to end the sale).
Thank you! I would have never known, haha. I tried google before but that brought up results for what powers various satellites....

how can I get the right type when only pumping a gallon or two? The hose/pipes have the wrong mix in them.

The official answer is to buy at least a 5 gal. can at a time to average out the type better, how can you do that on the road with a Cycle that has a small tank? Heck, the largest tanks can barely fit that much when run low and they aren't on many bikes, even sleds only take 6+ gallons.

A-....'s consider it an "economic stimulus" to make anything not brand new obsolete without the right fuel available.
you're damn right we're pushing back. My quad runs so bad on ethanol fuel vs non ethanol. my sled was the same, even had a setting for using ethanol gas where it changed settings, reducing power from 150 hp to about 135 to save itself.

ethanol is junk, corn has no use being in my fuels. people who race love it because of the power potential with the right setup, but if I want power in something like a race car, I'll set it up for methanol :D

Rath Rides yeah, marked as "Boat fuel" because boat engines, and other power-sport engines aren't designed to run on ethanol. Especially older carbbed ones. The lines, gaskets, o-rings, etc. are materials that will deteriorate with prolonged ethanol exposure.

Its listed as "boat fuel" at wawa. It cost $2.55 but i filled up with shell v power at $2.63 instead. Hoping Tom can come in and shed some insight on the tune factor. If it was E0 93 I'd be more inclined to do it because these cars already lack enough in the tq department,.I would hate to have to leave anything on the table over gas.
