Fuel octane and pinging on 250

Recommended Posts

Hi guys I just wanted to know if the new 2014 KTM 250 XCW motor can run on 93 octane (RON). The manual says use 95 octane which I always do but I can't get my hands on 95 octane at the moment. I was wondering if I can run 93 octane for the next few days without any problems?

I am at about 3000 feet above sea level. I think the octane rating in the USA is different from ours. I think our 95 is equal to your 93 if I am correct. I got hold of my mechanic and he said it should not be a problem and that I would hear pinging if it happens.

in my manual, 95 RON= 91 USA octane.
