leaded fuel (called 95 in Thailand)

I put 4 lt of 95 in the tank by mistake. I filled then with 91 (unleaded). Should I drain the tank?

I didn't know leaded fuel was still sold anywhere in the world.

It should be fine though. You diluted it and it shouldn't damage the engine.

I don't think 95RON in Thailand has lead any more, more likely benzine, so it's standard fuel.

Are you confusing it with ethanol based 95RON Gasohol?

I think if you topped up with standard 91RON (gasoline/benzine) you will be OK.

As WJMRTY has said, 95 is unleaded 91 is also, but 95 is a little better quality.
I use either for both my bikes.

the only place i know you can buy it in the US is at a racetrack, usually 110/112 octane. it's basically banned for regular autos/ gas stations

Unless your engine is knocking or pinging there's only one benefit to running higher octane fuel than what the manufacturer calls for: it promotes the value of CVX and XOM shares.

In other words, there's no harmful effects to doing it beyond draining the wallet more efficiently. It's like paying $5 for bottled water instead of $2.50.
