Default 55 AX 16% and 18% oil recomendation

Tower Tech Notes says 55 AX should use 18% oil in fuel, as opposed to the 46 AX which can use 16%. Anybody have any problems with fuel in the 55? I use 16% in my 46's and like to not have two fuel systems to drag to the field.

Default RE: 55 AX 16% and 18% oil recomendation

I wouldn't worry about it.

Just use a reputable fuel and fly.

The difference between 16% and 18% is minimal

Hell, we fly with 12% of good quality oil here and we've never had a lubrication-related engine problem. In fact my oldest engine (a TT46Pro) now has over 450 hours on it and it still runs like new.
