Default Fuel changing??

Ok I am curently using O'Donnells 20% fuel. Last time I went to the hobby store I don't remember seeing any. They had plenty of Byron's 2 fuel though. Now I know your not supposed to change fuel but how bad would it be to change between these to fuels? Or should I just wait a little longer to see if they get some more O'Donnell fuel in.

X2....Nothing wrong with changing up fuel's....as long as you re-tune it each time as the tune WILL be different from fuel to fuel.

I thought I read somewhere before that you should stick with the same fuel, That's all.

Thanks to both for help. Who knows maybe I'll like the Byrons better anyways.

There is a train of thought that you should use the same fuel all the time. It does have some merit theoretically but yet people do it all the time without problems. Both fuels you mentioned are good so go with what you can get.
