No issues with fuel but when will they get "pay at the pump"?

 

One place had a sign on the door, "Remove your helmet before you enter to pay for your fuel". Really, I will not be going to that station again. . . . . .

 

Other than that the trip was great! (Small issue, if that is the worst thing that ever happens life is good!!!)

Au Train? They have one there. The 15 year old clerk called my buddy a sissy when he said he didn't want to take it off because he was cold. It was hilarious.

I ran into this last year and asked about it, seems they were having trouble with shop lifters and were just trying to cut their losses, can't fault them for that

It is my fear of getting stale (waterlogged) 91E that had me really wanting an 87 octane capable sled when making my decision this year.

pump 5 gallons of premium into your truck before you fill your sled, this ensures that your are not getting somone else's leftover regular. And you can try and get gas where sleds have access to the station. help to ensure you are getting gas that hasent been sitting in a holding tank for months. 

I know this is old thread.  But 5 gallons, is silly.  

 

 

This topic comes up a bit on bikes sites, and is debated.  Many think it siphons back and is very little.  I can tell you on built bike, I have got pinging during hot temps under acceleration.  Never heard a sled ping.

 

Maybe I am out of date, on new sleds.   But I doubt it.  

 

As far as worrying about old premium.  Ya it has crossed my mind. But sleds are not the only thing running premium.  Bikes, atvs, chainsaws, mowers, ect.   x

 

Then there is the question on your compression and if you really need premium.

Stay home if that bothers you.

 

I typically take it off, cause I want it off.  Not sure if I ever wore one inside in my life.  I suppose those buckles are tough for some.  I don't buckle full face helmets.
