    yes. the "for Canada" section above says to use 87 octane using the (R+M)/2 method. (Research Octane Number + Motor Octane Number)/2

    the paragraph above refers to to octane calculated by Research Number only. (US and Canada do not use this method)

    I use the 91 oct because the lower stuff is alcohol (Iowa Corn) and my bike runs terrible on the stuff. Also I get around 46-48 mpg on the on the 87 oct instead of the 54-58 mpg on the 91 oct.

    Today I did a round trip to Cultus Lake, BC. I filled up at the lake area ($1.32/litre), after riding about 30 km on the back roads, I hit the Highway 1 and gassed up in the city again. Distance from gas station to gas station, 150.2 kms, amount of gas filled up in the city, 5.855 litres.

    Fuel economy (highway): 3.898 litre/100 km
    or
    Fuel economy (highway): 60.3 miles/US Gallon

    My bike is around 4000 kms (2485 miles) now and last year fuel consumption was around 55 mpg after the first service.

    Rode a 275 mile two up trip yesterday and tried two combo's of gas to see what the mpg results woud be. Using 93 octane we covered the first half of the journey with an outstanding 60.3 mpg. On the return we ran 87 octane with 10% ethanol (it wasn't by choice) and were aided with a net 2000' elevation drop to get a rather average 53 mpg. Just using generalizations for this less-than-scientific study we gained 12% fuel economy for a 6% price premium making the higher octane more economical. The glitch in this logic was the ethynol component. Need more tests I suppose to substantiate this one-time result.

    Elvis, on the way out don't turn left at 16th Ave, keep going in the left lane and turn left at 0 Ave, keep on 0, just past 264th Ave border crossing is Pioneer Park, where I live, stay with 0 till it turns up to Huntington, turn right, follow your route past the Cultus Lake turnoff , thru Vedder across the #1, thru downtown Chilliwack, right on Yale Road east till the turn off for Aggazzi, head for #7 back towards Harrison, left to Mission.
    Entering Mission, take the left over the overpass, then left to head to #11,
    over the bridge past Matsqui, take the right at the light, which will take you to Fort Langley.
    I turn at Mt. Lehman and head north till I hit the School. turn left and follow the road till I hit River Road and turn left till I hit the Fort, turn right then left at the light then follow Glover till the Langley bypass, turn right then to the Fraser Highway.

    There are a lot of nice back roads off of 0 Ave and also from the Fort area.

    Perhaps sometime we can get together with Atla68 also.
    Last I heard, he was buying the coffee.
    PS; the Deli in Yarrow makes good sandwichs.

    Hello again Blackie,

    Quite frankly you live in a beautiful area and have many nice roads to ride around. I didn't know 0 Av was actually a public road and because I didn't have my passport with me, didn't bother riding towards the border.

    I go out and ride spontaneously (my schedule is so messed up) so it's hard for me to make an appointment but I will certainly go to Cultus Lake again and perhaps we can meet up some time and ride together.

    Cheers,

    Elvis

    Blackie, thanks for the directions

    Based on your suggestions, I sketched a new map for the next time:

    from:350 W Georgia St, Vancouver, BC, Canada (Vancouver Public Library) to:176 St @49.032466, -122.735194 to:0 Ave @49.002198, -122.713848 to:0 Ave @49.002195, -122.666469 to:0 Ave @49.002293, -122.614288 to:0 Ave @49.002265, -122.598838 to:0 Ave @49
