Fuel question

Just got my XP turbo a few weeks ago. My question is where I live our options for NON-ETHANOL gas is 90 octane and I know technically the turbo calls for 91. Should I run 93 with ethanol or the 90 non ethanol?

Re: Fuel question

I would run the 93 with ethanol. Polaris manual says you can use up to 10% ethanol.

Re: Fuel question

You can run up to 10% ethanol before you would want to have it tuned for ethanol. I wouldn't worry about it, ethanol isn't bad for your engine you just need to be tuned for it if your running a high percentage of it.

If you're concerned that it might have more than 10% you can get a tester from amazon/ebay, they're less than $10 usually, and test the ethanol content in the fuel. I test my fuel all the time, but for opposite reasons, I run E85 so I'm always testing to make sure I have close to 85% in mine.

You will be fine with 90 octane fuel

If the pumps says 10% ethanol, it’s usually only 5%.
