I have this problem with my fuel system; if i use normal petrol, my scoot seems to chug along as if i were low on fuel.
Yes when i use V-POWER petrol, i have none of this problem.

I don't know what causes such a problem, but i wanna start troubleshooting it by cleaning out the fuel system.

What do i need to do to comepletely empty my fuel tank, and clean everything leading from my tank to my engine?

This is a 125 Fly, ET4 engine i believe.

OR, you can just run the good stuff from now on and not worry about it.

And in the UK, the 'normal' 95 RON petrol is what they are designed to use.

Ask your dealer, they will provide hints I'm sure, they really don't want to be chasing these things, they'd rather you found out for yourself with their help.

I'd start by looking at those valve clearances...

And how to i get to those valve clearances?

I can do belt + rollers, spark plugs, most electrical problems.
But when it comes to fuel - i'm a blank slate.
