98 Octane Fuel (Good Bad Pointless ?)
The Owners manual says that the Wee Strom should be run on 91 Octane fuel (87 octane for USA and Canada)
I have always (90%) used Shell Optimax in my bike , it has an octane rating of 98. I personally feel that my bike runs better on it, but it does cost upto 20c a litre more than regular unleaded.
Does anyone know if I am putting my motors health at risk by running 98 Octane fuel, If running 98 Octane is not going to cause any harm I will keep using it, cause as I said above I really do beleve that it runs better on Optimax....
As a point of interest this is an example of the Shell Fuels available in Australia
