    Hi all,
    Just a quick enquiry about petrol as I am just about to get my new Six and have been without a bike for a while, only driving a diesel car.
    Has anyone run their bikes on E5 and E10 ? Is there a noticeable difference ?
    Is it a better rude to use super unleaded instead ?
    Are there any issues with mixing E5 and E10, or is this a no no.
    Be interested in your opinions and experiences.
    Bob

    Hi, Bob
    Go with the super unleaded , the higher Ron is more suitable for the compression ratio of the Spitfire (12:1) , everyone has been on at least a 5% then 10% mix for some time (diesel is 20%), eco fuels are a little less caloriefic, so not as much bang as the old stuff.
    regards martin
