Itís actually illegal for them to sell you the Avgas for use in anything but an airplane, but would you believe the production of Avgas is also illegal?
Anyway 100LL is of course leaded fuel and as such the lead does contaminate the oil
, will build up on the spark plug
and its I believe an oxygenated fuel meaning it needs a richer mixture for the mixture of be correct, so itís burning lean in your motors and lean means hotter.
Itís really not ideal as a small motor
fuel, but I too have run it in small motors, my Husqvarna motorcycle for the octane and in a motorized Dahon folding bicycle I put together to carry in the airplane, just put my fuel samples in it and the little Honda motor
ran for years with no problem, but did run hotter, and I never ran it enough to foul the plug
