octane rating of your gas?

What kind of gas do you all put in your personal jets? I've been using 93.5.

I had to sell my personal jet to buy a fast food franchise.

I am running straight NOS and it is the shit yo!!!

No, really I run either 87 or 89, I was told by my mechanic that all it really needs is 87.

My bike came with a warning to use only 90+, so I use whatever premium is, 93 or something.

Here in AZ, the best available is 91 for about $1.60 a gallon (Aug 14 '02)... how much does 93 run per gallon out in FL?

Im forced to use premium (91 in CA.) cuz Kawasaki said I have to due to 12.5:1 compression ratio
~After jetting, it kinda kills the superior MPG of the bike compared to a cage on 87 at 26 MPG....

The price today at the Mobil station by my house is $1.56 per gallon for 93. Thanks for reminding me I need to fill up today
