With a turboo i would hope so.

Any long term wear issues in your lawn equipment? Avgas runs leaner, but then again with the air coooled low rpm engines they probably don't run too lean.

I had a guy run avgas in his TL without any tuning because he thought it would make him faster, you should have seen the hole it burned in the piston.

I wrote the article that has been quoted in this thread a couple of times and it's true that high octane gas is not necessarily higher quality than lower octane.
Your reference to airplanes is off base, in that, AvGas (aviation gasoline) IS higher quality than auto pump gas. For one thing it does not contain alcohol.
Airplanes don't use what we call "pump gas".

A few years ago, I was doing environmental testing. I did a lot of testing in Atlanta, and you could get 100 out of the pumps. It was $4/gallon, but you could get it.

My bad, race gas typically runs lean, although avgas can also burn lean as it can remain liquid as it enters the combustion chamber and does not vaporize or burn fully. I wouldn't recommend running either in a high rpm engine unless it's jetted / mapped for it.

No, yours used to run on U4 and as a result of the corrosive fuel 2 of your spark plugs tried to destroy the cylinder threads on the way out.
