Default Vulcan fuel %. 25% 0r less?

I have had my Vulcan SE for a week now and loving it.

It ran in easy and I have had a few tanks through it now of 25% taking it easy with only a quick squirt of full throttle.
When I spoke to my LHS they told me not to use 25% 'as the little engines don't like it' and to use 16% instead.

I have read people using 25+% here, but what is IRC recommendations?

Basically I am not after out and out speed, I have my tricked up Cen Genesis for that [8D], this is just my 'spare car' for messing with and I am after reliability.

In the US we use 30%, the engine runs much better...so you should be fine with 25%
