Hi,

I bought a used 2010 Vespa GTS 300 Super yesterday from a private owner. He told me he always put regular unleaded gas in it. I recall reading somewhere that you should put premium, at least 92 octane. Which is correct? I can't seem to find an answer searching sites on the Internet. Thanks.

There is no problem.Take a higher grade of fuel! 95 or something.Your motor will be running smoother !
