You can always get octane boosters. And unless the vehicle requires it your just wasting money

What do you drive that absolutely needs higher octane fuel?
If you're really hard up for higher octane pick up a gallon of toluene at a hardware store or someplace.

STi requires 91+, and 93 is recommended (according to owners manual), though 15psi of boost on a 9:1 compression ratio will do that...bike requires premium due to compression ratio

AND with my bike wrecked, I'm sucking down 93 and paying through the nose...BLAH!

I filled up at the Exxon station at the corner of 606 and Shaw and my bike has run like crap all night. Stalled out while sitting at a couple of lights, likes to drop to under 1000 RPM at idle, all sorts of crap. If I filled up with old, crappy, sitting there for 2 weeks gas, I'll be pissed off. Time to go ride that shit outta the tank and fill up with some good stuff.

I couldn't find anything around my house in Centreville this morning and luckily made it up to my work with the gas light blinking the entire way. I'm almost tempted to put some octane boost in the tank just to see if it cures things.

I may be a nub with what sportbikes require as fuel, but for some reason I feel dirty putting poop 87 in my bike... ever.

I drove to 3 freaking gas stations tonight on the way to the Herndon spot and they were ALL out of anything but 87.

Either someone convince me that 87 is just a-ok to put in my 954, or someone tell me where there is a place within (? 10 miles I think I have left) that I can get 93.

This is pissing me off. First we get gouged with insane gas prices, then I can't pay the absolute insane price for 93 anywhere around here just to get the good $hit?

Wonderful.

Higher octane doesn't mean cleaner, better burning engine. It just means it requires more compression to detonate without a spark. Any jap bike runs just as good on 87 as it does on 93.
