And stop the coppers outside On Nut Tesco from taking x00B off me every time I go past.
Hmm, I've just got 35mpg (imp) from a tankful of gasohol. I have refilled with 95 tamada in the hope it will give more mpg.Captain_Slash wrote: I have been using only 95 gasohol now for about 3000 km and no problems, I only ever used it on the fuel injection Honda Wave before until it was pointed out that you get less km per litre and the price reduction doesnt make it worthwhile. This is total crap as the Bm is still giving me 32-33 km per litre riding steady, the same as 95 gasoline did, but the gasohol is 4 Baht per litre cheaper so I personally will carry on using it
All this from just a few litres of Gasohol? Amazing! :roll:monsterman wrote: I put a few litres of gasohol 95 in the Ducati yesterday and the bike ran OK but there was more vibration and a bit less power and response the exhaust note was a bit flatter too.When i refilled with regular 95 the machine was better a little smoother and harder edge to the sound and a bit more power.
hmmm....could Monstermans seat of the pants test be wrong?Since the 10% blend is very lean it is quite questionable if you can detect the increase in power. Also the ability to take use of the better air/fuel ratio is better on fuel injected vehicles than carburetor models. We are talking about 1-3% increase in power and about the same decrease in mileage. Anyhow all talks about huge decrease in power and mileage are bullshit.
I ride a 883R Sportster 03 and the guys told me, if necessary get 95 Gasohol / 91 benzene in the ratio 1:3. However I am still lucky, my local pump selling still 95 benzenetrawler wrote: I bought a HD Fatboy 06 model in Nov 07 and was going ok with Gasohol,however in Jan noticed fuel tank cock leaking slightly so tightened everything but not so much help.Bike was in at Richco for some repairs due a unscheduled off road experience in rain nr Mae Hong Son.....However Richy told me that the seals on the petcock and in my carb had been damaged and asked if I had been using gasohol,I said yes and he advz not to use it and stick to normal 95 or 91 if 95 not available.He showed me the seals etc.....Now according to my owners manual the bike will be ok with gasohol up to a 10 % mix.Maybe the local stuff has more ethanol in it.Will stick to non gasohol ass long as possible.
