Hmmm just about every second petrol station has premium fuel for between $AU0.90 and $AU1.15 per litre. Not sure how that works out in $US per gallon but it shouldn't be that much....Joker45 said:Matt. You are lucky because you have 98 octane to use. In the u.s. if I want that kind of octane I have to buy race gas at around 5 bucks a gallon. I agree that the bike should not pind at all. even at 91 octane.
