PDB - that's what I've been using in my PAW 1.49 RC for running in - didn't have much success with the D1000 fuel at first, specified for running in smaller engines and was advised to try the D2000 formulation, which worked much better. The engine hasn't been used yet, as my indoor running in activities were curtailed after running just a few tanks through it by commencement of some building works. It'll be warm enough soon to complete the running in out of doors. The model is ready and waiting to have the engine installed.

This was maybe 3 years back. The engine was about £30 IIRC with the heavy duty crank option:
