My aircraft’s, a 1966 Piper Cherokee PA28-180C, Flight Manual states that the fuel must be “91/96 minimum octane aviation fuel.”  Does this mean any aviation fuel of the required octane, such as Swift’s 94UL is acceptable or must I still have a STC?

At my uncontrolled airport, the grass crosswind runway is “closed winter months and after heavy rains,” in the chart supplement (AFD of old).  If the crosswinds are very high and I as pilot in command determine landing on the open runway would present a safety of flight risk can I land on the closed runway, without declaring an emergency? There are 2 airports within a 12nm radius with crosswind runways.

What would the FAA and insurance company view should an incident ...

Can someone guide me on the proper way to use G5 with a Century IIB autopilot.  GPSS mode work fine for me.  but where I have issues is getting it to Track the localizer.  I am think is something  to do with my button pushes.  One of my partners was able to get it to work.  But I have not been successful.  From talking to him it sounds like we are doing the same thing  but getting different results.  It definitely does not work like it did for localizer with the NSD 360A installed.
