  • dodgy fuel..

    Ok, after having a couple of jerry cans in my garage for a little while - I decided to fill the bike last night when i got home..

    Anyhow, on the way to work this morning - the bike's farting and spluttering.. and soundin REALLY nasty.. almost like a harley..

    I've come to the conclusion that the fuels either off, or there is moisture there.. ( even tho the fuel was stored in a cool, dark location )

    Is there any way to dump this at a servo and fill up with some decent stuff ? will servo's be able to dispose of crap fuel ? or should i try and ride it out till i get home..

    I'm a bit worried that it might either crap the bike, or the bike might decide it will not like this - and at 100km/h - might not be fantastic for me..

    suggestions ?

    run it through the lawnmower till all gone, or maybe it's a good excuse for a good old fashion bon-fire?

      syphon the fuel out into a bucket, then sell it to someone of no specific ethnic background for them to sniff, then refil at nearest servo.

          BP reccomends that fuel is used within 6 months of leaving the refinery, so if it's been sitting there that long you'll probably find it's a bit off.

          I would only be concerned about it containing water if it's got ethanol in it.

          If you want to use the fuel in the bike, it might be best to go 1/2 and 1/2 with new and old fuel.

            yeah, I dont think I'll have access to a hose around here.. and the CPP guy might not appreciate me sucking 10L of fuel onto the ground

            tho, it might be interesting if i threw a match at it as i rode off.. ^_^

            Might just go to the servo on the way home.. try and dilute it up with some good fuel... bugger !

              Just tip it down your nearest stormwater grate one evening, then go get some fresh stuff!

                if that's the case, chuck a bit of octane boost in it too.

                      would it be wrong to write a swear word with it ?

                      ( then match it up.. )
