Default Fuel for SBK's

Wondering whether one should put in regular fuel or the higher Octane fuels in SBK's?

Junta owning SBK's - would like to hear your response on type of fuel used and corresponding performance/FE/Longterm benefits and ofcourse Cribs as well.

Hullo srikantans,
hahaha..was asking myself the same question last night...almost dry tanked her..how embarassing after blasting past traffic to have her run out of gas and then.... pushing..(the dreaded P word..!!!!)
I use MINIMUM 91 premium.
Speed 97 is superb, but rare and 60/- a litre !!!!(Karan's pump@Ballard Estate, Pump@corner Warden Road/Nepean Sea Road corner and Sardar Pump@start of Linking Road. HP has 93 (actually its 94) also good..but more often than not HEAVILY adultrated..
Try not using regular unleaded, I have always had performance noticably degraded. If you have to try and keep an octane booster with you..
Cheers!
