This is not necessarily what happened but it is a possibility. I wonder how many failures of this type of have occurred in engines which never use mogas.
if it was fuel/mogas related, then wouldn't we see the similar failures within the rotax fleet, which preferred fuel is Mogas. or is the situation avoided with the higher revs effectively moving peak pressures thurther from TDC? (which is why i run mine at 5200rpm)
