    William I've a lot of time reading through this forum and am still unsure of this question, not related to this thread really. What octane should I put in my 09 factory? Have access to 94 zero ethanol, 91 zero ethanol and 87, 91 with E10.

    If you use the scooter regularly, 87 is all you need. If you're scooter sits unused for long periods of time, use the 91 with zero ethanol.
