Does an 18% grey card give better Custom WB than a white card?

THAT would solve some of my problems....

I'm not that bad with a white card, but far from perfect. i still
have to correct on my PC every time.

It could very well be, depending on the type of the UV properties of the white card you used up to now...

Check if the pictures with an indoor white balance based on that card

turned out too blue and outdoor white balances turned out to yellow. If this is true, the grey card definately is woth checking out.
