Indeed what engine? Great replies so far. I'll just add something to the break-in with synthetic stuff. A 2-stroke engine will break in just fine with synthetic oil of any brand. Maybe some mfr's of oil say this (I've not seen it) but with these engines it makes no difference if you start minute one with synthetic and it can be argued it's a better idea, especially when the ratios recommended for break in are 15:1 or 20:1 (which sorta flies in the face of no synthetic from the start)

On the fuel, save a few cents. It will burn most anything but not old ethanol fuel premix. Mix that and burn it. But don't store it.
