I use Shell almost exclusively in the US, though not always possible when traveling.

Hi Mate, I have found BP 98 Plus the best, Shell over here is very dodgy.

You may find this interesting, I did: I watched a program that showed how gasoline is made. It showed the process from underground oil to finished product at the pump. The interesting thing was that the "gasoline" wasn't "branded" (Shell, BP, Scooter's, etc.) until it was pumped INTO the truck. Into each truck, while filling, was blended the chemical "package" that made the gasoline the brand you purchase at the pump. Up until that time, it was clear unbranded petrol.

So, perhpas there is a difference in the chemical package they blend for the folks Down Under.

I buy whatever R+M/2 89 octane and have zero problems....whatever station comes to hand when the fuel light comes on.....I would like to buy non ethanol gas, but that is getting near impossible. I have started treating my gas with StarTron when I know I won't be riding for a while....E-10 gas has a shelf life of about 2 weeks max.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Hi there,
What is the difference in fuel types anyway?

I was of the understanding that the higher the octane rating, the better the grade of fuel - is this not the case?

If I read the above correctly, you guys are suggesting that 95 or even 89 octane fuels is better in the Brutes than the 'premium' 98+ octane stuff.

Hey Dan,
I've run regular unleaded in my Brute since day one and occassionally put 95 or 98 into it. I've have zero problems running on the lower octane grade but I do have to run higher in my Harley - she pings and taps out like a bitch if I don't.

The Brute on the other hand runs clean and hard on regular ...however I would add that my Brute is ridden 3-5 times per week so she gets a regular run and the fuel doesn't sit there for weeks on end...

Cheers

Tim

Higher octane fuels burn less violently than lower octane fuels. That is what prevents the pre-combustion, or ping, in higher compression engines. You actually get more energy from lower octane fuel.

Strange co-incidance,the company i work for has been contracted to fabricate and install new pipe work for the additive system for a Chevron Texaco fuel terminal in the U.K.Shell and various supermarket brands also pull out of there.The fuel is usually shipped from Chevron Texaco Milford Haven or Shell Hamble refinerys.The actual fuel is cross sold between suppliers the only difference is the additive injected into the fuel at point of entry into the fuel tanker normally at a ratio of 1 litre to 1000 litres before it is transported to the garage.The supermarket brands tend to have cheaper additives or none at all that is why they are slightly cheaper at the pump.
