Fuel Octane
on: May 12, 2021, 09.05 PM
For the riders in the United States, which fuel octane are you using? I peeped at the manual and it doesnít give a recommended grade, it just states a minimum of 87. The dealer told me to use premium for the best performance and mileage.

Has anyone tested out regular vs premium fuel?

Yes..  Use premium fuel only, that engine has 11:1 compression anything less than that may be harmful ( detonation in the cylinder is not a good thing )and will add to poor performance. I'm a lil OCD so I only use Shell, and Chevron for my Trident.  Enjoy your new ride!!

Thanks! Yea that makes sense given the high compression. Iím surprised the manual doesnít make the recommendation outright.

Only ever used Shell V Power (99 octane in UK).

From full to 4 miles range left I did around 132 miles. Never let it get that low before  :008:

I'm running 87 in it atm because it's all I can find thanks to the shortage.  I usually run 91 or 93 in it
