really not that complicated... sure it'd be nice to add a gizmo to count number of detonations.
main objective is to first know about possible problem and how to handle it. do a search, Lots of folks has destroyed their F800 engines in remote locations. what's missing is ... why?
BMW is not exactly sending out notices to warn folks how to keep from destroying their engine from the unlikely event you should get a load of bad fuel. (diesel mixed with gas?).
all you have to know is .... if your engine start running funny and losing power immediately after a refuel .... STOP!!! don't ride on!!
take your helmet/ear plugs out... lightly apply throttle... if you hear engine knocking.... drain bad fuel out, put new fuel in... let engine idle contaminated fuel until gone. hopefully cost little to nothing to fix.
when you can apply full throttle without engine knocking again... you are good to go.
ride on with engine knocking = destroyed engine = $2,500+ to fix
