Talk to me about Aussie Opal fuel

I don't know anything about this Opal fuel we get in the outback and would be glad for all info on running it in modern bikes.
How does it go for mileage, same or worse than ULP.
I ride the 660 tenere so how is it with fuel injection?
Thanks in advance.

From what I find, it appears Opal works just
the same as conventional non-leaded 91 RON fuel.

It is more expensive to produce because most
aromatics have been removed.

The only issue I see would involve those few mostly
older vehicles that must have high-octane fuel.

Newer fuel injected vehicles usually have knock sensors
that enable them to run on lower octane fuels without
damage, but with some loss of power.....
