What is the best octane rating for my moped

Hello everyone, I have a Peugeot TSE-R 1982 and I was wondering if regular fuel was enough for my moped or i should go for premium?

Re: What is the best octane rating for my moped

I try to use premium with kitted peds or one that has good compression. It doesn't hurt to run higher octane,like 93. Generally premium is just that, a better grade and cleaner.

Re: What is the best octane rating for my moped

If not a high compression engine regular fuel is fine, I do run premium in my peds, seems to be smoother, but don't notice a performance increase. The best fuel to use is non-ethanol if you can find it.

I just put in the Cheapest i can get, even Kitted, 95 Ron is the lowest rating we get here, wich is about 91 Octane AKI, we don't get 91 Octane Ron (87 AKI) anymore since like 2008.

As stated, go with premium.

Re: What is the best octane rating for my moped

Just use whatever, it's just mopeds.

Re: What is the best octane rating for my moped

I’d be more concerned with the oil I use.

Re: What is the best octane rating for my moped

Thank you for your answers ! i'll go 91 because it's the maximum here and sometimes Petro Canada has 94 so i'll try that .

This also applies to oil.

Motuul 710 is great.

It came with a Motul 800 bottle, but i read that it's only for racing , so i'll switch to 710.

Re: What is the best octane rating for my moped

Use the 800, its just mopeds.

hahahah :) I just wanna be sure that my moped stays reliable and lives longer.

1. Use the cheapest gas possible unless you have done a lot of work to make the compression insanely high.

2. Listen to everyone on the top about good oil... lubrication is critical with two stroke motors.

3. Sell me your TSE -R... that will alleviate all your issues with fancy Peugeot dual variation... i would be open to getting a conversation going about a trade or trade+cash going if interested in a Puch kitted bike or Peugeot 103 kitted bike

*gasp* A TSE?! Pitty it ain't a tsmr;)

Re: What is the best octane rating for my moped

1- Alright

2 - I will follow the advice

3 - Sorry but I'll never sell it :/

Re: What is the best octane rating for my moped

Hahahahahaha, you will come to hate your tse if you're asking questions about octane ratings.

Re: What is the best octane rating for my moped

Why is that ?

Okay,Hadi…….you were warned about cheap gas. When you post back after running trash gas, I will be remembering this post back to WillS.

now i'm lost :( cheap gas or premium ?

Re: What is the best octane rating for my moped

Hi, I use 98 octane over here (uk) with a cap full of acetone as a further octane booster, my ktm supermoto don't like anything less as it has 2 octane sensors. If I use 96 ron (normal unleaded) the fuel appears to go stale if left. I have a funky moped that runs on the old castrol R now 747. Smells ace lol

98 in the Uk is 93 in the us, 96 in the Uk is about 91-92 us.

Re: What is the best octane rating for my moped

That's why we use a cap full of acetone to pump up the volume lol. Too many silly laws over here compared with the states imo

What does that have to do with it? it's just getting measured differently.

Re: What is the best octane rating for my moped

Basically if you buy cheaper gas you can add acetone to increase the rate of ignition, I'll leave it with you, sorry for trying to be helpful.

Re: What is the best octane rating for my moped

Ah, understood you wrong, thougt you were saying that we get worse Gas.

Re: What is the best octane rating for my moped

Wait... I thought a higher octane was simply for higher compression engines(not entirely). Running regular would be more than fine for stock engines. If you were to run low octane in a high compression engine you'd get preignition...

Yeah, and actually the acetone will DECREASE the rate of ignition so the predetonation doesn't occur.
