I read my owners manual and they recommend at least 86 % octane unleaded gas for the 2012 CBR 250 .

The owners manual stated this % more as a minimum , rather than a must use . This left me wondering , should I stick with the 86% or is a higher % " better " for my bike ?

I would be very interested to hear what you fellow riders have been topping up with , if you notice a difference and how long have you been doing so ?

Thanks in advance !

Hey MaxTO,

As a fellow GTA rider, I'll give you straight answer.
Regular is fine. I use premium cause I like the imaginary feeling that my bike is running better.
And forums get nasty when a question is asked for the tenth time.
If you do a search for "fuel octane" you'll find it discussed to death.

Hope to see you on the road.

Q: What gas do you use , and how long have you been using it ?

A: Shell and it it depends upon how many days it takes to use it up.

I only searched octane and didn't see anything :( good call should have also included " fuel " in the search field .

But thanks for your answer !

And on the bright side , look how much joy I have brought into the lives of want to be mods :cool:

It's not funny anymore.......
Then why post in this thread ? You do realize that you are bumping the topic each time you post about how pointless you think it is to post :confused:

Hoping you'll see the light I guess. Some of us learn slower than others.
