I was wondering what fuel people are using in their FZRs. I was recommended super plus. I know that the super will not detonate prematurely due to higher ron number. I would like to know what you think - I know that shell super additives can aid in other ways ( friction reducer being one ). Am I wasting my money, are the results from standard as good?

My rule of thumb is. When the bike comes out of hibernation itís usually got unleaded in the tank. On my first ride out I get the tank as empty as possible. Then I fill up with super unleaded. When that tank load empties I then fill up with unleaded again. I continue all through the riding season with unleaded. When it comes to the near end of the riding season I give it another full tank of super unleaded. When thatís tank full has gone itís then goes back on to unleaded. 👍

It's so long since I sold my Exup that I only ran it on standard unleaded.
After that I ran my Gixxer on Shell V-power. Didn't add much to my weekly riding costs. About £1 per 100 miles.

Now I don't have a choice. Have to run my CLS55 AMG on V-power or better.
At 19mpg lifetime average I'm glad I hold Shell shares.

Worked it out. Old regular fuel 98 ron, standard unleaded 95 ron, super unleaded 97 + ron. Super is closest. If I have my figures wrong please let me know.
