Hey Guys, Now that buggy season is here my dumb question should these motors use reg, mid or super grade gas? Mine is a stock 1600 dp with twin kads.

The only difference in gas grades is their ability to resist detonation. If your timing is right, your compression is stock, and your moor is well tuned then regular is just fine.
If your timing is too much advanced, or your trying to squeak out all the power possible then the higher grades will help you prevent detonation.
And this is buggy season? I still have 2 feet on snow on the ground even after an entire day about 60 degrees yesterday. Today its about 20 degrees and the wind is whipping around like crazy! Last night was thunder, lightening, rain and hail.

WWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA IT'S -30*C My buggy is a frozen lump in the garage and there's 3 feet of snow in my yard. 2 more months of winter for us.
Regular gas is fine for your motor

Jim, are you around Daytona? I'm in New Smyrna. Been sweating my butt off today cutting up a tree. Hot and sunny. BTW, I hate hot and sunny.
