Fuel additives, do you use any ?!
« on: June 24, 2019, 07:15:58 AM »
Hello .. I just watched a couple of good videos about cheap gas vs expensive  gas .. Here in Denmark I have the choice of fuel with 95 oktan lead free vs 100 oktan lead free, the bikes manual just states that the bike needs minimum 95 oktan fuel, I have been using 100 oktan fuel for quite some time and I feel that the bike runs better, but I dont trust myself 100% on "feel" it may just be imaginary since I want it to be that way  :027: (The power of make believe) ... many of these videos that tested fuel talked about "fuel additives" ... The only additives I use is when the bike is set for winther storage, I then use a fuel stabilizer so the fuel dont go bad when it just sits there ... but is it worth checking out fuel additives to make the bike run as good as it can? ... I believe in taking care of the bike, also the reason why I use 100 oktan fuel since it states to clean the engine and run it better ...

Once or twice a year I add a little "fuel injector cleaner" to my bikes and my car. I've used different brands: Lucas, STP, Gumout...they all seem to do the same thing.

I drop a 1/4 splash of Berryman's B12 in the Wife's Ninja (FI), rest of the bottle goes to my other ZRX (carbed). 
Seems to help the ZRX run better after sitting all Winter (drained the bowls, fill both w/ 91 non ethanol fuel).
Couple rides, they're fine.

Many different brands out there, basically all "try" to do the same thing.
"snake oils" my buddy with the Honda Goldwing calls them.
