I switched to DTE this year. (from Shell 500) No problems yet. One of the guys I fly with has been using it for a few years, and has a lot of hours on one of his Wren's. (about 50 hrs without a rebuild)

Ask the turbine manufactorer about wich oil to use. Not all will agree on 2-stroke oil.
I have been using Aeroshell 560 for ten years, with no problem. I have had Simjet's, Jetcat's, Behotec's and currently ATJ's. All manufacturers have said that Aeroshell 560 is fine to use. Now, because the Aeroshell is a bit difficult to get, i use the Jetcat oil.
