Motorcycle in Indonesia use several types of Pertamina-produced fuel, such as premium (RON 88), Pertalite (RON 90), and Pertamax (RON 92). However, the price of gasoline-based fuels continues to increase there must be innovations to save fuel use. This study measures the level of efficiency between Pertalite mixed with additives with a motorcycle testing method in a stationary and moving state. Comparative research material was Pertalite with a mixture of additives and Pertamax. The study was conducted with a motorcycle filled with 300 ml of fuel and left to run with a 4000 rpm engine speed in a state of motion, then calculate the time to spend fuel. As a comparison, the motor was used in a moving condition and the mileage was measured until the fuel runs out. The results show a different level of consumption, which was lower consumption of Pertamax compared to using other fuels on an immovable motor. When the motorcycle was moving, Pertalite mixed with liquid additives was more efficient than pure Pertalite and Pertamax
