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.

Father in law's been a lab technician for Petro Canada/Suncor for over 35 years...

I run Premium in everything I own. Not for bragging rights at all but because of my Dad in laws recommendation and this... My 09 Hemi Ram gets over 150Km's per tank more running it...Got to be good right! LOL

Harley/S&S,Polaris,Can Am all the same thing.

And DO NOT GET ME STARTED ON THAT ETHANOL BS!! Needless to say I don't burn the crap...if I was stranded and that was the only gas station around I would fill just enough to get me to the next one I swear to gawd...
