I agree the best solution by far of fixing the ’01 issues is changing the fuel. Here on the east coast fuel is open and we have been running C12 instead of MS98 on the (SKUSA-spec) stock honda package and it does solve all the issues with detonation on the ’01 cylinder.
And I cannot think of any downside to changing the fuel spec from MS98 to C12 other than people (or SKUSA) being stuck with existing inventory of MS 98. So maybe the spec fuel for S-5 can remain MS98 (I don’t think they have the level of detonation issues the other classes have).
I agree with Stephen that we should start a petition and get this over to SKUSA. Surely they must listen if enough (top-level) drivers get behind this…
