There are huge discussions on this one that is why I linked you to the classic posts. Go with 16 to one for break in for sure until about 3 or 4 tanks then go 20 to one. The biggest thing is to monitor the color of your plug Rich chocolate brown is said to be perfect. I use HIR 100% Synthetic Ester oil . Thats just me . There are lots of oils out there some of them are a thicker viscosity. You can almost tell a good oil sloshing it in the bottle some have a thicker slapping sound in the container. That said monitor you plug condition use a good synthetic youl be ok . Don not use marine two stroke oil its a different heat range than our CH . hop this helps feel free to ask around!
Still gotta have a since of humor.
