Why cant I just put "proper" fuel my car? The same reason why I bought a base instead of a type S........I can't afford it. :finger:If you read the Hondata site is says they used 89 not 87 and also that they recommend 91. Why even bother spending the money for a re flash if you aren't going to put the proper fuel in the car. It will retard the timing when it detects knock from low octane fuel and you will gain nothing from the reflash
I wouldn't say that I haven't gained anything when I know I can definitely feel the difference. Am I using the reflash to its full potential? No, but its my daily driver and I got other bills to pay. I'll save the extra power when I'm proving myself on the drag strip. I'm still having hella fun with my new mod and I'm not doing any long term damage putting regular fuel since its not a S.
