I’m surprised people are recommending octane lower than the manual states.
The vee2/3 is a torquer. I would not run 87 octane without changing my driving habits, which would have to include not leveraging low end torque effectively.
Slow vs fast burn after auto ignition, and the topic of incomplete combustion, is something I hear repeated in forums all the time. It’s a myth.
The only difference between low and high octane is the gas’s ability to withstand pre-ignition. Meaning igniting outside the spark induced ignition. If you have an engine tuned for low end torque, and the manual says to run 90+... do exactly that.
In a pinch, sure. Just modify your throttle and shifting inputs to mitigate the risk.
Two wheelz for realz!
