View Full Version : Cars, Bikes, Gas (octane level)

Transportation related decisions to make as we move to Bonaire - does anyone have the specific information below?
We are trying to decide if we should bring our cars/bikes etc or buy there.

1) What is the octane level for the normal unleaded gas available in Bonaire? (one of our existing car's is a turbo so this matters)
2) What quality of a used car can you get for $4,000 - $5,000? How many miles might be on it? (trying to determine if it is worth paying to ship our existing car)
3) What is the average price of a new or a used bicycle?

Thank you

The Curoil site above lists the Octane as 95. Looking at the research this seems to be measured in RON, since the US uses AKI for the octane measurement, it should be equivalent to 91 Octane in the US.

2) Based on looking at the few cars available for sale online, it looks like $4-5k is the bottom range of cars available.

3) Don't know. New bikes seem to start at $700 US.
