We run T4 all day long in the 1299/V4/SL/R. Slightly higher quality fuel without the ethanol, which is the real key factor.

I've had ethanol destroy so much shit, pumps/hoses etc. Just not going to put it in anything.

T4 is basically just a pump replacement with slightly higher octane. It's unleaded, so it isn't going to bother anything sitting in there. Just paying for some piece of mind.

All good advice. VP does make unleaded fuel so thatís all I would use of course. But I hear what you guys are saying. It would probably be a net positive but maybe not worth the cost for a bike thatís used pretty often.

Having used Avgas, Methanol etc across a couple of 2 & 4 wheel classes its a pain in the ass. Supply & Storage and with the likes of ethanol based forever cleaning/strip downs during periods on non-riding or storage.

I have a street car I run on E85 and now only 2 places sell it at pump which is over the other side of town so using driving 100kms just to fill up

ASBK rules for fuel for my race bike.

 Must be Unleaded and no more than 100 RON
 Must contain no additives other than those added at
the point of manufacture except for lubricating oils
 Must be readily available from retail petrol pumps
within Australia produced by an oil company for sale
in the Australian general transport fuel market and
sold through retail petrol pumps in at least five
Australian states or territories. For the avoidance of
doubt this means the fuel must be available for sale
on demand from a roadside retail bowser outlet at
each of at least five separate service stations in
each of at least five Australian States or territories.
 MA homologated fuel is not allowed.
 GCR 9.15 applies to this championship.
 Ethanol fuel blends are not permitted.

Think the only guys who use "race fuels" are the drag bike guys.
