I use ethanol free gas in my 2 stroke Zuma and lawn equipment. The guy I bought my Monkey from said regular unleaded is perfectly fine for my Monkey. Anyone have a different opinion.

You get more power with a low octane gaz. The more octane you have, the more it is difficult to light. High octane is for high compression and tight tolerance in mecanical fittment. In a sport motor, the power came from tight tolerance not with the high octane ratio. Tight tolerance induce high heat from friction so you need high octane to prevent auto-burn (ping).
