Frequent question: What petrol do you put in a moped?

What petrol do mopeds use?

Petrol – A topic of much debate

Consider – if you don ‘t expect to use your scooter regularly, we recommend that you use normal unleaded (ULP), as the additives in premium fuels can “go off”.

What type of gas does a 50cc moped take?

You should use 87 unless your owners manual tells you otherwise. Using 91, 93 or 95 octane gas in a normal engine will not provide any performance benefit.

What’s better a 2 stroke or 4 stroke scooter?

Generally, 2 strokes are louder, pollute more, and don’t last as long between rebuilds as 4 strokes. But it is much easier to rebuild a 2 stroke, and there are no valves to adjust!

How fast do petrol scooters go?

Most 50cc scooters come with a restricted engine, which limits the bike to a top speed of 30mph (48kph). However, a 50cc scooter can go at speeds of up to 60mph (96kph), while most will comfortably reach 40mph (65kph).

Do mopeds need premium gas?

Nope. Higher octane just means it takes more energy to ignite it. In cars (and mopeds) with higher compression, this prevents ignition via compression before the spark, better known as “knock”. So if you are running brand new rings on a regular moped, 87 should work just fine.

How much gas does a moped hold?

Scooters do have limitations, however. Even though some higher-end scooters can go as fast as 80 miles per hour, many max out at 45 miles per hour or less. And while scooters can get as many as 100 miles per gallon, the average tank can only hold two to three gallons.

Do scooters use petrol?

Yes, it is true scooters and motorbikes in general are very cheap to run when it comes to fuel usage. Although some have better performance than others. This can add considerable cost to how much you pay to use your rental scooter. Typically the cheaper brands and models are also the most expensive to run.

How many miles can a moped do on a full tank?

Generally a moped has about a 5 liter gas tank or 1.32 gallons. Scooters can get between 100 and 120 mpg, so that leaves us at an estimate range of 132 to 158.4 miles or 212 to 255 kilometers.

How much petrol does a scooter use?

An electric scooter will offer the same mileage as a petrol scooter at 15% of the cost of one litre of fuel. So, in the electric bike vs petrol bike debate, EVs take the win as they’re more economical over the long-term. The average petrol scooter offers about 50-60 kilometres per litre.

Should I use super unleaded in my motorbike?

It’s unlikely any normal motorcycle would see any better performance by using it. Super unleaded has a higher octane rating than standard unleaded – but, to take advantage of the higher octane rating, you need a car / bike that is capable of adjusting its ECU to run on it accordingly.
