Fuel Problems

This link is making its rounds on the MC forums; thought I'd share it here as well.

I run 91 Octane with Ethanol 30-40% of the time and have never been able to tell a difference. I asked my dealer and he said it is "ok", but may cause some hesitation.

I have noticed a huge difference when running 87 Octane and no ethanol, when nothing else available........

No Problem with E15 Ethanol

Was up in Kansas several months back. Pulled into a station, and started pumping the fuel with the highest octane rating. While pumping, I noticed that the higher octane fuel was cheaper than the lower octane fuel. By the time I figured out I was pumping E15, the tank was almost full.

The LT ran great on the stuff. In fact, I think it ran better than on 91 octane gasoline.
