Title: Stupid, Stupid, Stupid . . . damn diesel gas
Post by: KWSplash on August 20, 2004, 10:29:10 AM

Alright, so last night to add to an already horrible day I pulled the bonehead of the year award.  I went to fill up at a gas station before a ride with some friends.  There were three gas hoses, 87, 93 and one unmarked.  Almost every gas station in my area has 87, 89 & 93 so without even thinking I assume the other unlabeled pump is 89.  Well I was wrong.  :( About a mile downt he road I got a slight hesitation in the throttle so I pulled over and realized what happened.  About 2 hours later after taking the bike apart in the parking lot and pouring out my gas tank I was able to get it restarted.  She seems to be running fine now but my quesition is what should I check and or replace to make sure I minimize the long term effects (e.g. check to see if my spark plugs are messed).

If it's running fine now you should be fine.  You might want to see what a fuel filter would cost (if there even is one), and if it's cheap, replace that just to be safe.  I don't think this is necessary though.

ROFLMAO...

It won't hurt it too bad...  It could foul the plugs and possibly clog the injectors, but in the warm months, you shouldn't have a problem with it.  Just run some gas through it and you'll be fine.

If it continues to run like crap, look at having the injectors cleaned and replacing the plugs.  No, don't use any additives or sprays.  If the injectors need to be cleaned, bite the $200 bullet at a dealer and have them cleaned right...

Look at it this way.  Better diesel in a gas motor than gas in a diesel!   ::)

Thanks Jeff, I usually don't take too much in those snake oil injector cleaners and what not.  I haven't tried to start it today but I will at lunch, but last night when I got it running again, it was running perfect not even smoking anymore.  I think I'll plan on replacing the plugs in case I fouled them.  Is there a fuel filter, I don't have my service manual at work.

Frankie,  there was absolutely nothing different with the nozzeles.  Hardly any stations around here carry diesel and the ones that do, usually have compeltely seperate pumps and are bright yellow.  This was a small moms and pops station with an unlabeled pump.

Well, I'm glad I could entertain most of you, I know i'll never live this one down.   ???

They should be but since the opening on the bike really isn't a standard gas size opening it wouldn't matter.

But typically you can tell by looking at the pump dispenser for the right size. In this case bigger is not better.....

Oh and some of the diesel/kerosene dispensers have green on the handle where gas has black or some other color.  At least here in Ohio it's that way.

Some pumps have the bigger nozzle, but cars need to fill up too. Some gas stations will have one small nozzle and one large.

Title: Re:Stupid, Stupid, Stupid . . . damn diesel gas
Post by: frankie on August 20, 2004, 12:05:44 PM
yeah, but the question is after he pumped, drove down the road, stopped, how did he know then it was diesel.
Title: Re:Stupid, Stupid, Stupid . . . damn diesel gas
Post by: rjh200 on August 20, 2004, 12:21:09 PM
Oh trust me, you can tell by the smell of the exhaust that the wrong gas is in there.  Did that in my quad, grab the wrong gas can out of the garage to filler up.  
Title: Re:Stupid, Stupid, Stupid . . . damn diesel gas
Post by: Jeff on August 20, 2004, 12:35:07 PM
There's a fuel filter internal to the fuel pump (inside the tank).  Don't worry about it unless you're having a problem.  

FWIW, diesel pumps aren't necessarily a pre-determined color in any given state.  In WI, they vary, Yellow, Black, Green.   Size will also differ depending on where the pump is.  If it's a truck pump, it will be a stand-alone pump and the nozzle size will be huge.  If it's a car pump, the nozzle size will be the same.

Where you WILL be able to notice is that typically the diesel pump handle is VERY greasy looking and feeling.  Diesel doesn't evaporate like gas does, so it gets messy...

Post by: frankie on August 20, 2004, 01:20:20 PM
When I worked at a Ford Dealership, they had a new excursion that was bought.  So, we were prepping it, go to the gas station, and it had the smaller opening.  So, we couldnt fill it up, because all of the deisel pumps had the big nossels.
Title: Re:Stupid, Stupid, Stupid . . . damn diesel gas
Post by: KWSplash on August 20, 2004, 01:22:40 PM

I personally couldn't tell by the smell (but now I can), it was a guy I was riding with who noticed the smell of diesel from the exhaust as soon as he pulled in behind me.

As for the pumps 95% of the time I go to mobil, where there are three choices 87-green handle, 89-blue handle and 93-red handle.  If they carry diesel its usually a completely seperate pump and its yellow.  Oh well, you live and learn I guess, at least things seem to be well now.

If it was diesel, you should have noticed the aroma of the fumes coming out of the tank as you filled it up. And jeff is right about the pump itself being very dirty.
I work at a gas station as a weekend job, and one of our workers put about 9 litres of gas in a diesel car yesterday...we had to get a shop to drop the tank and take it out, but I figured he could have just diluted it and burned it out. That's also what the mechanic said, but customer knows best (I guess). lol

Depends on how large the tank was...  If it was a small (10-15gal) tank, I'd have drained it too.  Anything more than about 20% gas dilution to diesel fuel, and you're looking for an explosion...

87 on CBR600RR... CBR1000RR recommand 92 but you can put lower octane..

well darn...the manual says "86 or higher."  ive always ran 92 in all my bikes, one lasted over 55,000 and i got rid of the others sooner.  Any possible down sides to using a higher octane?

ive thought about this many times.  doesnt higher octane gas need a higher temp to ignight?  if that is the case, fi our bikes are supposed to have 87 then does it all burn at 92 octane?  I know in some new cars that takes 87 octane it says DO NOT USE HIGHER OCTANE GAS!

waht you guys think?
Title: Re: Stupid, Stupid, Stupid . . . damn diesel gas

On my car the manual said to use 87, but it also said it is recommanded to use highest octane..

Octane is a rating that has to do with the flash point of the gasoline- nothing more, nothing less.  The higher the number, the higher the temperature needed to ignite it.  If anyone cannot understand these words, follow the owner's manual and don't worry about this anymore.   :thumb:
Title: Re: Stupid, Stupid, Stupid . . . damn diesel gas
Post by: frankie on April 17, 2005, 12:09:43 AM
thats my point, if it lights at a higher temp doenst it take longer for it to get to that temp and wont the timing of the fire be off slightly?

Post by: catch2otwo on April 17, 2005, 01:22:37 AM
street vehicles such as your daily driven cars dont need 93 or hi octane gas.  Like 600dubb said its the flash point of the gas.  The higher the octane rating the higher the temp it needs to ignite.  Now lets say u have a 60s muscle car no technology in the ignition system but you have a modded engine.  You will want to use high octaine becuase your gas has such a long way to travel before it gets to the igntion chamber(carb, intake runners, ignition chamber).  And since the engine is modded your motor is running hotter.  In this case you do not want your gas "pre igniting" before it gets to the compression stroke which is called knock.  This is bad.  But since on your bikes and daily driver cars, your efi and computer prevent this from happening.  If your computer senses high temps or something that might cuase knock it will do things to prevent it such as retard timing etc.  So running 93 in your toyota camary wont make it last any longer and your just wasting your hard earned money.  The only time i would consider running high octane would be if your ride is modded where your fuel map/timing is custom, or you have a moderatly to highly modded carburated application.  Other then that save your money for mods.  hope that clears things up!  :thumb:

somewhere in all that wrong info there is a little piece of fact.....

I still cant figure out why so many people have such a hard time understanding what the octain rating is,   Octaine is resistance to detination, nothing more nothing less, the number you see at the pump is the average of the research and motor, rating for the fuel you are getting.  Research rating is determined with some math and some one in a lab coat, motor rating is actually determined in a running engine with a moveable cylinder, that is moved closer to the crank untill detonation is sensed.  By moving the cylinder closer to the crankshaft, the compression ratio is increased. 
  There are 2 major factors that determine how much octain you need, compression and timing, the higher compression, or more timing advance you have the more octaine you need to prevent deto (and the more power you should be able to make).
   Of your engine is set up to be safe on 86, you wont gain anything but an lighter wallet by running higher, and many engines make less power on fuel with too high of a rating.
  UNLESS it is an efi knock sensor equiped engine with agressive programming, that always runs on the edge of deto.
 
   as for the muscle car argument, A normal all cast iron V-8 can only run about 9:1 compression on todays pump gas,(aluminum heads knock sensors and efi have allowed this to be pushed to about 10:1)  but back in the 60's you could buy a car running 11:1, and have no problems, because of the high octaine, leaded fuel that was for sale at every corner.

Don't feel too bad - none other than Monty Lutz of Sportbike Track Time had a similar encounter that he told us about at Road America last year...

He (on an Aprilia) was riding through Kentucky with some buddies from Europe - on 2 Ducatis and a Bimota.  They stopped to fill up.  Monte put all thier gas on his card.

They went into the gas station to get some Gatorade...

"Them thar must be some fancy Eur-o-pean Motor Bikes." says the, erm, inbred looking lady at the, erm, back-woods fuel station.

"Why, yes... how did you know that?" - Monte

"'cause them's the first motor bikes I've seen that take Diesel!"

Diesel motorcycles have been around for a long time. There is a company in California that  makes a KLR type bike for the military. I belive that it will be available this summer for something like $20,000. The brits made a few ,Enfield and few others also I think the germans during WW2. All torque and high milage, very high milage, like 100 mpg or more.  I would buy one if they were available, but not at $20,000. A few years ago  this bike came out one of a kind. parts from others with a VW cpu. Heres a link to it.   http://thekneeslider.com/archives/2005/02/25/thunder-star-1200-diesel-by-star-twin/

the nozzles are a differnet size , disel are slightly bigger , howerver on a bike ( not sure honestly havent put gas in my bike yet ) is not the same size as a cars filler neck so the disel one wont fit in a car , yet as was said better disel in a cas then gas in a disel , the gas one is small so fits in any neck .

From someone who uses diesel gas alot. "military trucks" you can tell by the smell. and just to be sure. put a drop on the ground a try to light it. diesel has to be hot and compressed to light. Mo-gas or reg. unleaded would light right up. But im a piro anyways. ::)

my ex girlfriend did that, she blamed it on me, saying that I was just trying to get back at her, or was jelous because she had a new boyfriend.

I tried to reason with her that I did not have keys to her car and could therefore not open the fuel access door because you have pull the lever on the inside.

I still go blamed.
