    If you can't get 95 what's available? We only have a few places that can supply 98 in the north of the state.

    The trouble with 91 in Aust is it's poor quality and not clean enough. Some bodies are wanting its removal from sale and make 95 the lowest grade. There has been some debate and it would seem that it will eventually be discontinued. But having said that I first heard it debated nearly 10 years ago.

    My partner bought the VS after I got the VE.
    She puts anything in.

    Yeah I run 95 in my mowers and other equipment easy to just fill up the same fuel in everything. I have been told 95 has a six month shelf life, which is another reason I use it in everything but then again a well known member on here who really does know a lot reckons he was told by a race car builder that 95 actually only lasts a month. So really hard to know for sure.

    Yeah or Zeke Toppanga. Zeke used to cause all sorts of arguments. Before Zeke another bloke used to get upset but he removed himself. I wish i could remember his name but it would be 30 or 40 pages ago in the political thread.

    Are you referring to CSP, otherwise known as Rajesh Koothrapali, otherwise known as Amy Farrah Fowler ?

    TBH I don't remember his or her name. I just remember he (assuming gender) argued about something and he ended up saying he was leaving the Political forum. He was arguing with a number of people. If I CBF I will scroll through the pages and try and find a quote. I reckon it may have been a year ago when he was last in the forum.

    I stay out of that thread because there is plenty of member abuse and I would have to warn and ban people....

    I spend a big part of my day "arguing" over contract terms so stay out of that thread coz I CBF with arguments when I'm not getting paid to do it.

    I think it's 98 $$ ,91 & the 95 tank got replaced by some ethanol thing. Operater ssys 95 was the best seller but they were over ruled by head office.

    I use 95 in all my pumps n mowers too. Seems to work f ine after storage.

    TBH the closest fuel has been 40km away for years now, and it's probably one of highest cost in the state. The big two were there but now it's one place to get 95.

    Not CSP. He loved starting arguments and always stayed the distance. Didn't care who he offended always very opinionated with no patience for opposing views. An entertaining pain in the rectum IMO.

    I find it has gone a bit quiet in the last few years. I have been spending less time on here as well, and other forums in general.

    And life has changed a lot too! The car in my profile pic gets driven maybe 5 times a year. My job is pretty full on with travel. Got 3 kids. A block of land that takes 6 hours to do the bloody lawns and yard maintenance every second week. All that takes up plenty of time!
