Non eth gas or not?

Do you use it? Why? Why not?

Worth the extra cost?

How long have you been using non eth?

Does it really help our older Helix low compression engines?

Is a compression ratio of 10:1 low compression these days? Seems to be quite high compared to my motorcycles from the 1970's.

Oops, my error, sorry. Ours is high compression engine.

So, should we pay extra for non eth gas for it or not? Around here, non eth, 90 octane costs about sixty cents more per gal as compared to 87 octane, 10 % eth gas

I ride 20 or so miles almost daily, year round in central Florida
