mix 1:50 oil to gas, or better 1:40 in older mopeds.

Hi dave,
   gas is strange stuff, it is a mix of a lot of chemicals mixed to
special
 tasks.
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 :).

 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?
 
 
Thanks
