thanks...

 

with such high petrol price, trip going up north will be more costly, estimated per ltr count could be as high S$1.60/ltr for RON95.

I have used Gasohol for my ride to Koh Samui and no noticeble loss in power observed. My bike is Daelim RwR which is FI so I guess it is okay to the engine too.

 

Just to share, it is getting harder to find gasoline in remote area of Thailand. At most the gasoline on offered are of 91 rating or Shell V-Power-95. However, I do not recommend u all to try their V-Power as my friend bike stalled cos the V-Power had almost 30% water in it (drained out almost 3 litre of water). According to local, V-Power was way too expensive (about 32 batt) and no local will pump them. That results in being the V-Power was low in sale n turnaround and also lack in servicing. Water will just accumulate alot.

 

So my advise is, if u go into small town, try not to pump their premium fuel like V-Power. And since u only have two choices - gasoline-91 and gasohol, then u have to decide.

years back I tried lower RON in mlysia, my idling gone hey-wired to high reving & unable to turn low(engine kept dying off).

 

anyone experience the same for lower RON fuel, i.e. for 91 in Thailand..?

i think it has to do with ur engine recommeneded RON, if ur bike only can use 95, lower RON wil make it knocking (the problem on ur bike)...

 

think for newer bike, safer is RON95...

hi ppl

 

for carb bikes like sp .

what should i pump ?

 

Pump their regular 91/92 petrol will do.

 

Phantom, SP and KIPs are made in Thailand, so rest assured its no problem running any sort of low grade petrol there. If your bike does get damaged, spare parts and shops are everywhere.

:cool:

nE0,

 

I just went thru my ST1100 operator manual, it has no plm using fuel with octane rating not lower than RON91 & gasohol(ethanol) within its octane rating.

 

my next visit I will try gasohol. :smile:

As long as your bike is well tuned, it shouldn't have a problem running on Ron91/92. Its only the higher performance bikes with high engine compression (ST1100 10.1:1 compared to ZX14 12:1), its safer to run on higher octane rating to prevent engine damage.

 

Newer BMWs run very high compression and run very lean, so require ron98, but have clever electronics to run on lower grades automatically.

do u think I should set my tunning to richer or leaner..?

 

I was working on the fuel cost for a round trip, it really cost a bomb comparing it back to few years ago, riding cost almost double....sweat siah.. :D

I set mine to 13.5 for cruising rpm range, able to get around 18km/litre travelling at Thailand touring speeds. You and your bike should be able to do better! :D

 

Yes, fuel takes up a big chunk of budget, everyday pump close to 1000baht, costs even more than my own food and accomodation combined....

 

As you ride on and the air filter gets dirtier, the bike will run slightly richer, so its alright to start off the journey alittle leaner. I don't know how much you can tune your bike though, unlike mine, can set individual gears to different tuning, so I set 6th (cruising gear) leaner than 5th (Fun/overtaking gear)
