The Tuono has a plastic tank. When ethanol-water goes through phase separation the water ends up causing "tank spread". Basically, it can deform or cause ripples, and bulging in the tank, as well as deteriorating the rest of the fuel system. To avoid that, I run pure gas or ethanol free fuel in my Tuono since day 1. Your other option would be to Caswell coat the tank, but I have read some negative aspects to that. Easiest way to avoid it, is to avoid ethanol fuel, which is why I keep 40 gallons of pure gas on hand. It's all I run.

I'm two hours outside of Houston, in East Texas. There's three locations within a hour radius of me. Unfortunately, there is no where CHEAP close to you that has ethanol free gas.

Not too bad actually, I drive 40 minutes to get there. The 40 gallons will last me a little past 1200 miles, but then again the Tuono averages only 30mpg. Having 2 bikes helps to offset that a little. If this were my only bike it possibly would have been a deal breaker. Then again I'm pretty meticulous about my stuff. Aprilia will warranty the tank for the issue within the 2 year warranty period, but the best dealership for Aprilia is AF1, which is 3.5 hours away. They physically have to have the bike too. You can't simply send them the tank. I knew this before I bought the bike, and deliberated whether or not to buy it, and what to do. I considered 100ll fuel, but once again that has its own set of issues, and for me and where I live this was the best choice with the least set of consequences. It's not the bikes problem, it's the stupid subsidized corn industry who is to blame.
