What Octane of Gasoline do you guys run in your ATV?

I know there is several threads on the reasons for why people use each octane of fuel and i have read through them, this is a straight pole to get a rough idea without reading through TONS of posts in multiple threads, plus i think this poll will be handy to many users.

Please don't get into a debate over the differences of each octane as that's what all the other gasoline threads already have done. Go find those threads if that's what you want to do. I am looking for a straight answer here, nothing more.


I don't care what or if you guys use additives in your gasoline, I'm just talking gasoline only.

Feel free to list any/all additives you use in your gasoline in this thread if you so like however.

87 octane no ethanol. Majority of the time. If i can't find it i'll run reg unleaded, but only if there is no other option.

in the truck(suv) i run 87 ethanol but better mileage with the "pure" gas than ethanol crap.
