You need castor oil. You can also buy the synthetic oil used in making fuel (klotz) from the larger hobbyshops. You can also buy the nitro from the hobbyshop also.

Two stroke oil

30 weight (30W) non-detergent (because you will be burning it) oil.

Synthetic is best, a little castor is good because it sticks, castor is also bad because it sticks. (messy)

A little rust inhibitor is good too when burning alcohol.

Motorcycle dealer is the best place.

I have about 10 litres in my garage for my Suzuki GT500b (500cc two cylinder, two stroke.

I think Morgan Fuels gives you their ratio on their website.

High-viscosity oils offer extreme protection but at a cost. The heavier weight oils cause fluid friction if used in percentages higher than 16% to 17%. Fluid friction adversely affects the performance of small engines by causing resistance between moving surfaces robbing power from your engine. Low-viscosity oils generate much less fluid friction so your engine turns up faster, but also at a cost. Lighter weight oils require higher percentages of oil for equal protection and higher percentages of nitro are required to burn the oil.
