    Lightbulb Hi-Octane: Yes or no for motor-bikes?

    Lately, I have been thinking on whether I should go for hi-octane for my brand-new HONDA CD 100 or not. I asked a different people and all had varying opinions. Majority recommended hi-octane, while a few ruled it out altogether stating that hi-octane is meant for high compression ratio engines.

    ...it MIGHT add a few horse power to a More Poweful engine (Talking about bigger engines, cars etc not bike's), but it wont give you a good fuel consumption ... no way. And its generally used in engines having more compression ratio....

    I am very confused on these exactly opposite opinions. Let's do a dissection of this issue brining-forth its pros and cons, and come up with a resolution on whether it's a go ahead or unnecessary to use HI-Octane for bikes' engines.

    Everyone got his/her own opinions about Hi-Octane and thats because everyone got different experience about it.
    I tell you what ... 1 baar kisi achay petrol pump say SUPER wala petrol dalwain (koi aisa pump jiss k baray main consumer reviews bohat aala hon k unn k petrol bohat acha hay - aur aisay pump bohat kum hain) ... Sirf 1 baar ACHAY WALA super kisi Achay Petrol Pump say dalwain ... Use karain.

    Phir use the combination of Hi-Octance with Super ... aur phir Use karain.

    Aap ko khud he pata chal jaye ga k agar Petrol achi quality ka ho to Hi-Octane ki zaroorat he nahin parti.


    Main ne bazat-e-Khud bohat use kiya hay Hi-Octane in almost 3500 km ride on my CG-125 ... but finally i realized its of no use.
    Haan agar koi halki/gandi quality ka petrol kahin say dalwa liya hay TABB 1 aadh baar 1/3rd ... Hi-Octane/Super ka combination daal lo. Warna koi zaroorat nain hay.

    ha ha just kidding @TBZ

    I used to feed my CG125 with the 50-50 combination of hi-octane/super way back in 1998 it really worked in acceleration & pick up , but now a days i dont believe in the quality of hi-octane

    i never face any problem in engine what so ever while using hi-octane (may be hi-octane selling in pakistan has not that strength to effect/disturb engine )

    There is no harm in using Hi Octane in bikes.
    I am using it in my CD 70 from 5 years. And I don't mix it with regular, I use 100% Hi octane. Some times when Hi octane is not available then I use regular one.

    In Lahore I liked that PSO in Liberty with handing dispensers (now demolished).
    All TOTAL's are good. Specially the one at M.M. Alam Road.

    @TZB

    The persons told u that Hi Octane is for High compression (Forced Induced) engines are rite so simply its not use full by any means in normal Bikes or Cars. As far as myth of bad fuel is concern how the addition of Hi octane can cleans it or ipmroves the efeciency of bad fuel? The octane numbers have nothing ot do with quality of fuel but of its Chemical propoerties.

    For more details u shud search the WWW

    I totally agree with the high compression thing.
    But there is no harm in using it. And plus you will feel difference.

    well high octane is for higher compression ratio engines starting frm 12.0:1 to as much as 16.0:1 and even higher , because if u use regular fuel in them , it will ignite earlier than the piston reaches its full compression in cylinder(thats when u heard a knocking sound due to pre-ignition)
    such engines are used in sport bikes to gain high torques
    Here in pakistan we normally dont have high compression engines and compression ratios of different bikes are as follows
    Honda Cd 70 8.8:1
    CG 125 9.5:1
    Suzuki sprinter 9.6:1
    honda cd 100/junnon 9.0:1
    suzuki Gs 150 9.0:1
    Piaggio storm 125 10.2:1

    so according to these specs a good quality regular petrol is best choice for these bikes , and its wastage of money to go for high octane as it will not give u and performance gain at these compression ratios

    agar cars mai use karain phir to theak hy kyu k un ka compression rate ziada hota hy bike say aur wo zia cylinders b hotay hain bike ka to bas aik hy cylinder hota hy sari economy bikes mai ...but u can use it in heavy bikes....

    It gives better performance in high compression engines but still its better than the regular 90 RON petrol.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    In my opinion Hi Octane is not good for small piston engines, even I use Hi Octane combined with normal fuel in my FZR, not the Hi Octane alone. Its better to use the recommended fuel for your bike, which is the regular gasoline.

    Brother, Hi-octane is simply more refined petrol than Super, It is good for any engine running on petrol, although more sophisticated the engine more it require better fuel but still if we use technoligically low quality engine it can run on low quallity fuel but if used better fuel it will give good performance and need less maintenance.. that's all I can contribute,

    the only time i noticed high octane was when i altered my bike and its was making hell of compression .. i couldnt kick start it .. it was very karak then and using normal petrol it would not idle properly and would start backfirring .. after using high octan (dont remember teh combination with normal petrol .. ) it stoped backfiring ... apart from that its a big hole in ur pocket .. from economical point of view its waste of money .. though i have used it a lot but only when it was cheap compared to normal .. so mixing was a good thing .. the only advantage was bikes response was smooth..
