100 LL replacement fuel

I have just learned of the effort to eliminate 100 LL fuel. I have an 0-235 engine with the Sparrow Hawk conversion and am required to burn 100 LL not MO gas like other 0-235 stock engines.

Hello,

   Questions red welcome although my engine is mounted only to get cooling fit. No other engine work is done.

   Since all the trouble I have had with cooling, I have lost interest in whole project.
