Any name brand synthetic 2 stroke oil is good, just make sure it is not "injector" oil.
Nominator and interceptor have given me more than enough satisfaction. Use 20 to 1 until you go through a tank or two and then you can cut back on the oil. If you don't know where to get it, you could try a motorcycle shop or a place that sells Lawn cutting stuff or boats.
Good luck.

16/1 is a little better when breaking in then engine, but dont run it for more that a few tanks or you could fowl your spark plug. then move gradually up to 32/1 or whatever it seems comfortable with round there.

hey mate.
just make sure when ur running in the engine you hav oil coming out the exhaust.
This mean u have 2 much oil but that is ALOT better then 2 little oil.
it just means u will have to take out the spark plug and clean it with a cloth and maby a little bit of sandpaper.

If u can get ur hands on motul oil they are argubly the best lubrication oil.
I just had a look on their website and they got like 7 different types on 2 stroke oil.

Just a little off track but check out what the motul website says bout this oil.
