    You can use a full synthetic if you fuel with Mogas/UL91.
    Rotax states semi synthetic if you are burning 100LL, I believe it has to do with oils ability to hold lead deposits in suspension.
    Oil change intervals with 100LL are also more frequent

    Thanks, that is useful. I use mainly garage bought unleaded fuel but occasionally have to refuel when I land away. I think I will stick with semi synthetic. Thanks again for your advice

    Just a quick tip.....when I change my oil in the plane I save it in a bottle and use it to top up the car,as the oil has hardly been used at 50 or 100 hours
    disclaimer....as per 2010 European libel act....these are my thoughts only and may not represent the thoughts or actions of any person /company/group/manufacturer named in this article/Internet posting
