Greetings All,
I'm curious to know what octane gas you run in your VMAX and why? 87, 89, or 92

For the better part of 8 yrs. I ran 87 octane in my 96 with no problems. The biggest thing I found out was if you run a fuel filter and keep it clean plus kept the air filters{Stage7} clean plus check your plugs on a regular basis the bike always ran Great, that was just my experience though . Take care Kurt

I've been riding a vmax since 1998 and I've always ran 87 octane. No need to waste your money on the higher grades.

I've had my '01 Max for four seasons now. I always use premium 93 or 94. I have tried to use 87 on a couple different occasions and it doesn't agree with my bike. It runs rougher, and doesn't sound as smooth. That's been my experience.

I always try to run 89 octane with Lucas oil co fuel stabilizer to make it run smooth.

The only main reason I run Shell V-power 91 Octane is because there is no ethanol in that fuel. I do not run any Suncor fuel in my small motors because of the ethanol content and I work for that company.
