Re: Premium Gas in 2-strokes?  Peter Staal

Hi dave,
gas is strange stuff, it is a mix of a lot of chemicals mixed to special
Normal fuel (octane count upto 95) is made for low compresssion engines,
Premium (98 octane) is made for high compression engines.
If you drive a stock moped, low octane is just as good as premium, even
better for your wallet.
If you have a tuned moped it can become sensible to use super/premium gas to
prevent 'pre-detonation' (pinging) until that point buy cheap gas, and give
it some extra oil in the mix if you want to spend money :).

Subject: Premium Gas in 2-strokes?
 A friend of mine always puts premium gas in his 2-stroke engines,
including his scooter. Does anyone know if this is worth while at all?
