    Does anyone know what octane Kawasaki recommends be used in their V-twin air-cooled 4-cycle mower engines? Have no engine owner's manual & could not find an answer on their website.

    Thank you!

    Use regular grade unleaded fuel with an octane rateing of 87 octane or higher. Fuel blends containing up to 10% ethanol or up to 15% MTBE reformulated fuels are acceptable. Do not use fuel additives containing methanol as engine damage can occur.
