Before you think that is too much trouble, let me tell you about the days back in the 70's when you owned a two stroke and had to carry oil to mix in the gas!

Hmm.. I wouldn't run 82 octane. I would expect detonation with such a low octane under certain conditions.

87? Sure, limited use with caution with respect to low rpm load.

When i first bought my Vee, i went out in worry of "what if i dont find premium" and bought a bottle of the lucas octane booster, seemed to be the best one. The worry quickly faded when i came to my senses as i have never had trouble finding it. I would certainly bring a bottle if going on a trip in off the map areas. The large lucas bottle (15oz) would treat about 5 tank fulls.

Exactly my plan on my next road trip. Lucas makes a good booster.
