I’m completely with Gunradd. I know JetCat (USA longer than Europe) did recommend it, but back in the days of stuck rotors/sticking turbines it was me who pointed at Aeroshell 500.
Mixing oil with Kero as we do means some of the oils are better than others at absorbing into the Kero and when burnt the way it deposits into the combustion varies.
It’s clear the atmospheric conditions people operate in will influence your luck.
If it works for you then great, I stopped recommending my customers use it 15 years ago. We use BP or Mobil oils exclusively until recently when many are now using JetCat oil or Power Jet oil because of supply issues.
