Lots of threads to comment on.
The subject on this thread is fuel, not who's stupid.
Find another thread where the subject is about stupid people where you're an expert.

Who the dumps fuel on the ground to avoid a small quantity of fuel, especially when a car tank is involved? And Im sorry, but its stupid. I also dont care if you agree or if it bothers you that I say its stupid. For you though I will say fuel fuel fuel. That better?

Nah - not better. Fail.

Yer still flailing away about "stoopit".
Yer intention is to demean, not impart useful knowledge or inspire productive conversation.

Since you are not quite catching on to what this is about, I guess you can continue to puke on my thread, but actually now is a good time for you to just bow out (which is what I was trying to get you to do in the first place). Maybe have a smoke and go ask someone who's IQ has 3 digits to help you out. If you don't know what "IQ" means, here's an example of what I'm looking for:

Lately, I've been taking my car to the station with a couple 5 gallon cans. I pump a couple gallons of 93 in my tank and then fill the cans. I fill the bikes from the cans.

Maybe its just me, but I make a mental note of which stations have separate hoses....mainly when I'm on the Ruckus because rarely do I put more than 1/2 a gallon at a time.

Sure beats squirting gas everywhere.

Personally, I'm more interested in finding a place that sells methonol free gas. Anybody know of a place? Typically I get about 48mpg on my 08 CBR1000, but when I bought methonol free on Dophin Island (off Louisiana coast) last year I got 54mpg...... BIG performance difference.

Hold up, there are people here who actually spray the gas from the hose onto the ground before they pump? Jesus...

If mentioning that pouring gas on the ground is stupid is "puking" on your thread, we are all . My comments are not the dumbest in the thread. The fact that all given octane ratings are minimum and also that most engines run fine on 87 should be noted. Next, I would mention that most wouldn't notice a half and half difference at all. Third I would say I ran the out of all my bikes on 87. I ran 93 in the Busa AFTER the engine was built so I could spray it and since it was built with higher compression than stock.

obviously not. . .all the cool kids just put gas on the ground It would be "stoopid" to consider actually putting some of that lowlife slumdog 87 in a bike that clearly performs at 100% efficiency on 93 octane.

Let's do a little bit of basic math to see who's really "stoopid":
([% Fuel A] x [Octane Fuel A]) + ([% Fuel B] x [Octane Fuel B])= Octane of Mix
For this exercise lets say you do get the full 1.5 quarts of 87 octane in your 4 gallon tank that you're attempting to fill with 93 octane.
(.09375 x 87) + (.90625 x 93)= Octane of Mix
8.15625 + 84.28125= 92.4375 Octane

Who's stupid here? The guy putting gasoline on the ground or the guy filling his 4 gallon tank with 92.4 Octane? i vote for the guy putting gas on the ground.
