The engine and fuel system components are designed to work with up to 10% ethanol blended fuels. Honda states this in the Owners Manual. I'm using regular unleaded (86 PON) gasoline, with 10% ethanol, and have never had any problems. If it was the ethanol blended fuels causing stalling, the problem would be wide spread. As it is, there are relatively few experiencing problems with their CBR's.
