Using the right type of fuel is critical in the safe and efficient operation of your Moped. All Gilera citta runs on a 50:1 mixture of gasoline and 2-cycle engine oil. Knowing the proper way to mix your fuel is the first step in keeping it running strong and long.
When choosing a gasoline to use, don’t go with the cheap stuff. Mid-grade unleaded gasoline with a minimum octane rating of 89 is recommended for your mixture. Fuel with a lower octane rating may increase engine temperatures, increasing the risk of piston seizure and damage to the engine.
