Re: grade of gas for R1100R

Wayne, This may well be a regional thing. But in the northeast, many stations are now going over to blending pumps. They are dropping the separate mid grade, and using those tanks for diesel. Saves digging up the ground for additional tanks, which would open the door for the authorities to insist on all new tank equipment.

Not usually.  Sunoco blends at the pump, but most stations get
separate deliveries of 87, 89, and premium.  The covers for the
underground storage tanks are color coded by gas grade.  Most stations
have 3 different color covers, indicating which tank is used for which
grade (assuming they are not delivering diesel).
