I am driving from france to cambodia with a 600XT who works with unleaded petrol. In Iran they only offer benzin. My english and my mecanic khnowledge is not good enough to know if I can put it in my motorbike without any damages> Do you think I can put Benzin or leaded petrol? What should I ask for??
Thank you for your help. I am waitning in Tabriz with an empty tank... http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/ubb/smile.gif

"In Iran they only offer benzin"
In the middle east, benzine = petrol. It may be leaded in Iran but that's probably all you'll find so you don't have a lot of choice. A lot of petrol stations sell small bottles of additives for vehicles requiring unleaded fuel. I don't know if they help but my bike survived Iranian fuel.

Stephano, it should be the other way round: old engines need additives to be able to use unleaded. That's the theory, anyway.

Salut from Southern France, the bikers' paradise,
