    yun pala yon... I was wondering why my cousin insisted on filling their bigbody (with the 2E) with premium when there was "regular"

    89 octane... ibig sabihin gagana dyan yung mga expedition, explorer.. etc. many american cars are designed to run on at least 87 octane

    I see... 95 octane lang pala yung non e-10. Our SA warned about using high-octane gas on the 2 after several mazda 3s encountered problems with 95 octane fuel.

    gusto ko sana makapagpakarga ng non-e10 kasi nabubulok yung ethanol!
    Doc, sorry for the noob question but paanong nabubulok ? Kapag hindi naandar yung sasakyan for a period of time ?

    And any symptoms na mararamdaman mo if yung ethanol eh nabubulok na ?

    nagakakaroon ng tubig yung gasoline from the fouling ethanol mix. can cause corrosion sa fuel lines upto the injectors, basta kung saan dumadaan ang fuel.

    oops, now ko lang nakita to,

    afaik, kahit sa motor masama yan, di lang masyadong sensitive ang mga engine ng motor lalo na yung two-stroke.

    what do you mean by "mahal yan kesa sa premium"? afaik, yung mga premium gasoline that have higher octane rating (95-98) ay ang mga pinaka mahal.

    afaik, here in the metro, some big 3 station specially petron, sell regular gasoline to tricycle drivers. regular means it is leaded. its not unleaded so its not compatible to modern vehicles. kahit yung mga post 90s di na din compatible. leaded gasoline has lower prices,and 87-89 octane. saw this on the news where a tricycle driver used regular(leaded) gas for his vehicle para makatipid,afaik, P38-45 yung leaded gasoline na pinapakarga niya.i think it was the P60/L of gasoline period of the market.

    if i remember correctly, it was early 90's (i think i was 4-5 yrs old, nagpapakarga lolo ko sa petron,maysilo ng owner type jeep) noong nirecommend or dinemmand ng government na wag na magbenta ng leaded/regular gasoline kase its bad for the environment and health ng people. kase nga its leaded.

    kaya modern gasoline now used the name "unleaded".

    paki correct na lang ako kung mali po ako.

    So ej, you mean na parang " silent killer " ito kumbaga ?

    Parang, bigla bigla nalang masisira kotse mo if not used for a period of time just because of having ethanol in your tank ?

    afaik... wala nang leaded gasoline sa pinas. especially in the metro.

    premium, unleaded, hi-octane... lahat na unleaded.

    *renzo: ethanol is hygroscopic... meaning it attracts water. so if a tank with ethanol sits for too long a period, water accumulates, and as sir aejhay had said, it'll cause corrosion, and whatnot.

    the "shelf life" is 2 weeks, from what I've read here

    i dont know by now sir scarnhorst either, but when gas prices hit P60 per liter last two years, i was surprised to see it on TV. A Petron Station selling "Regular/Leaded" Gasoline. hopefully wala na nga kase nga na-ban na ang leaded.
