We use RON octane measurement, you use MON octane measurement.
As stated, our 98RON is our top-tier pump fuel so I guess it equates to your 93MON.

But would they say the same to someone wearing a Burka?

I usually just keep my helmet on filling up or walking into the gas station. Its just easier. Now! If you own a gas station or quicke-mart, if you don't see a guy pull up on a motorcycle and he is wearing a motorcycle helmet, good chances are you about to get robbed.....sorry.......

We don't like it.

We started out with this broken system and it's still broken!

Re: how to refuel without dropping on the tank!

I never usually take off my helmet. I walk in the store and pay for my gas and walk out to refill. Stations never usually have a problem with it.
