I dont know if GA recips are using anythig that advanced or not.
If I'd known mentioning FADEC would take the thread to the topic of diesel I would never have brought it up. My apologies. But, yes, there are FADEC piston A/C engines that burn avgas. I think the only relevant points raised so far relate to leaded fuels compromising the cat and O2 sensors.

Moving on.......
