If I'm wrong then let me know. If you get the insurers name I'll make the call. I would love to talk to them if this was really the case. The FAA might be willing to chat with them too.
Obviously, I also disagree with any insurance company that mandates things like 100LL, but I have not found one that does that yet. But you know what? Insurance companies surely can do whatever they want, or make whatever restrictions they want, and I doubt the FAA has anything to say about it. Its a free country. If they don't "mandate" 100LL, I'm sure they're taking all those risks (like mogas) into account, when quoting premiums anyway.
About the only restrictions I've seen first hand, are prohibition on landing at airports with unpaved surfaces, or lengths less than 2000 feet.
But I'm still glad he mentioned this... if this type of thing is really happening, we all need to look closely at our policies, and shop around, if we don't like what they say.
