Question about 2003 Ducati Monster 620 i.e.

1 Answer

Gas I know there has been a topic posted on grades of fuel but I didn't read about anyone having problems with regular fuel. I just recently switched from premium to regular this past tank since I was kind of convinced by earlier posts on the topic that regular grade was just as good as premium for the monster. I had no problems at all for the first 50 miles of the tank but I also did not take my bike on the highway at all during those miles. Today however

I got on the highway and for about 25 miles my engine kept (stalling/cutting out?) and then coming back on again after a few seconds. The engine light would come on the rpms would drop off for about 1 second and then the engine would come back on again. Almost like it was running out of gas but there was plenty of gas left. It happened about 10 times and when I finally got to a gas station I filled it up again on premium. On the way back home the stalling problem happened one time and then I had no problems after that. Has anyone else had this problem with regular 87 octane gasoline? By the way I ride a 695 with a Termignoni exhaust system. The engine was cold when the stalling started happening but kept occurring even when the temp was running 212. I would appreciate any comments and advice.I've never heard of anyone having issues like that from lower octane and I never have with my carbed bike. I'd rather think you got a bit of water somewhere...possibly in the regular fuel...or it was already in the tank and the fuel is just a confusing factor. Use a little dry-gas and try it again.,,,

I need to know which is the best regular gas to purchase in my area, or which brand specifically like Chevron?


Fuel grades to use are engine dependent. If you know for sure that your engine calls for regular gas, then use it. Fuel in any area have additives specific to the region and time of year. There aren't too any refineries producing fuel, so there is no reason to be brand specific. Just shop for the lowest price since regular gasoline is almost identical no matter what brand you choose.

Does my 1500 vulcan nomad require regular gas or the premium octain grade gas


regular gas will not hurt your bike but the higher grade you put in it the better it is for it, but it is not a performance motor or a race bike so you will be fine with a lower grade fuel.

I have just purchased a 2001 Cadillac Deville. The owners manual says to use reg. fuel and yet I see recommendations on the internet to use only premium. Who is right? Thanks


I would go with what factory recommends and IF it starts to "ping" (rattle sound when accelerating) then step up a grade. Alot of what you hear/read on internet is in direct relationship to fuel available in different areas. Best of both worlds - use the middle grade (it also has extra cleaners in it)

the way i do it . if you put regular gas in and if your hear gas ping then go to the next grade it should quit. i dont like my four banger sounding like a diesel so i use 89 oct so it wont have the gas ping. it use to not ping on regular but lately we have been getting really **** gas around here so i watch were buy gas too.
