Default Re: What Octane Do You Use?

For many years off and on, I've done lawn-care work. My experience has been that any petroleum based, non marine, 2 cycle oil, and any pump gas will run any piece of lawn equipment. Obviously the mix ratio may be different per the manufacturer. I have never destroyed or damaged any equipment in any way by choice of oil brand name, or gas octane rating.

Your engine is similar to all of those engines. I would treat it the same as all of those engines. Some members feel strongly that synthetic oil and a certain octane is better than other options for whatever reasons, and they may be right.

My 4-Stroke gets low-grade pump gas, and 1oz per Gallon of Sea Foam.
It's cooler to not fall off your bike.
