A bit confused, as manual says Premium Unleaded but research shows that Premium is just ordinary Unleaded...
So should I be using normal (95) or deluxe (97/98) at the pump?
My XJR1300 is 2010 model so has fuel injection
Thanks in advance 🤔

It doesn't matter what you use.
Some say you get better mileage out of the higher octane stuff, I reckon it just eats into your wallet.
I hate cats. Really. Just stood in some camouflaged cat sh!t and walked it all through my caravan. Bastard things, i'm gonna kill, kill, kill.... :temper:

Thanks Cats
Does that apply to FI as well or does it eat into the pistons, valves etc. as well?
...and running temperature, easy (or not) starting, smooth running and,and..

I run a Tiger 800 with FI and haven't noticed problems running 95 RON.
It's all a load of hype if you ask me.

Yeah 95 is the standard at home or abroad. Injection or not. No problem.
