87 average pump octane, is KLR recommended Minimum here in the States.
Alcohol Free if I can get it.
So, here at home, 1 station has Alcohol Free Premium #91. That is what it gets 'topped' up with when I get back from a ride. I check my fuel mileage every fill-up.
I've talk to the managers/owners of other stations, to see if one could get #87 and maybe another get #85 Alcohol Free. Was told "sorry, can't".
I do also believe that Pure Gasoline (alcohol free), has a longer storage life.
But NONE of it stores as long as it did back in the '70s. Even if over the counter stabilizers are added.
The US EPA made the gas companies take the stabilizers OUT. How about Canadian fuel? Refinery stabilized or not?
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
