Default Swiching fuel brands

Can I switch from HPI 20% to O'donnel 20% without harming my engine, If so, do I have to do a second break in with the new brand?

No second breakin needed you will have to readjust your needles though. And Odonnel is a better brand in my opinion any! And your engine will be fine just richen your needles and retune from there

engine only needed to break in once when it is brand new. you need a simple run in if you replace conrod, shaft or wrist pin. other then that, fine carb adjustment is only required for fuel brand switching.
