Nothing special just IPONE Synthesis 2 (half synthetic) with 1 : 75, sometimes less oil somtimes more oil depending to the course. For trial "hiking" with roads and longer downhill parts more oil, for training thight stuff less oil.

Gasoline depending to the situation, Aral Ultima or Shell V-Power if I have to get it directly from the station otherwise Aspen racing, (because it can be stored really long and I don't have to rejet the carb and the gasoline doesn't smoke).

The point is, most of us do not know what other things the mfg does to an engine to use lean oil mixtures. If it originally was listed at 50 to one, 32 to one or whatever, you do not know if it is compatible with 100 to 1 synthetic. Not worth it to me.

I have heard about some old outboards that were plain bearings as well. They need the 16:1 to live. You can tell they have been on the water as the oil sheen keeps the mesquito larvi from breathing, further reducing the mesquito population.

My chainsaw a Husky 266 XPG uses Aspen gas with Husqvarna two stroke oil 1:50, but now we are ou of topic I believe.

To the bearing:
This reminds my to my youth where a guy in the neigbourhood tried to tune up his 50cc moped engine until the
engine finally - the wiser gives up in situations like this - abandoned.
