I don't think it would hurt. Some guys have mixed 110 and 91 50/50 but the bike runs good on 91(it is design for pump gas) . Why waste the money on the race fuel?

If you don't have any engine mods it's a waste of money. It'll just go out the pipe. If it's stock just run premium.

It will deteriate the carb seals over time - Forget 110, get some VP U4 - it will add power w/o the negative carb results. You must drain carb after each use to keep vapor gum from getting in the carb.

To each his own about using race gas - that is all I use exclusively..... :banghead:

Race gas is consistent and I have never fouled a plug when I am using it. 110 runs great in mine, I also ran the VP4 maybe it had more power I couldnt tell. Never had a gumming problem with either. I do turn off the petcock and run the carb dry but I never drain the tank. Now that Bush took off some restrictions on the refining of gasoline who knows what will happen.

How long does it take to deteriorate the carb seals????? I've ran Citgo 110 leaded race fuel for 3 years with no problems.


To answer the original question....Yes, you can run 110 octane fuel in a stock 426. :banghead:
