You don't like BP? I prefer BP than any fuel I use, I use BP ultimate 98.

Is it true if you running a high octane fuel like 98, the back of your exhaust tip and inside the chamber hole will have a lot of black exhaust burnt?

As others have said: your tune determines what octane your bike will run most efficiently. Black soot is a result of running too rich of an air/fuel mixture in your tune.

I think that often as important (or more important) than the octane you're running is...what's in the fuel you're using.

While I appreciate that many riders have no other option than to fill up 'direct from the pump', I seldom do. It started out when I began racing - I'd always fill up several fuel cans for the race bike and there was always some left over, so more and more often I began filling my road bikes from the cans, always using a filter funnel.

Regardless of where I'm buying my fuel, you'd be amazed at the amount of crap that is in fuel. I've seen grit, organic debris, even metal swarf and rust flakes caught in my funnel filter. I never empty a can to the very last drop because there's invariably crap that settles to the bottom and often water, too.

Service station tanks are almost always full of crud. If your bike is more than 6 months old and like most people you are filling direct from the service station pump into your bike's tank, take a flexi light and a stem mirror and have a good look at what's in the bottom of your fuel tank. I promise you'll be horrified.

Interesting I never thought of that, but it would be annoying just to fill fuel via inside an empty can, than fill your bike up using a funnel filter, but it can save your tank from getting a lot of shit inside I guess?

Odd. I took off my gas tank and drained it into a container and there wasn't anything in there except gas. No debris at all. And my bike has 24k kms on it.

The user manual for my 2012 Street Triple R says to use 91RON.

That's all I use. I have tested 95 and 98 over multiple tanks and have logged it, with no additional benefits besides costing more.

Throttle response is more crisp running the recommended 91RON.

Ride carefully - You are invisible.

I'd rather be next to a rider that can maintain a controlled wheelie than a muppet on their phone.

I run ethanol free 93. One gas station ten miles away from my house is the only place for a while that sells it. I actually squirt the first half gallon in my car and then fill a can and go top up the bike/toys at home, that way I keep whatever the person before me pumped and was still in the line out of my bike.

Shoot, a lot of stations in my area are doing good to consistently have 89 octane. I haven't seen anything over 91 here in years.
