Welcome to the forum mate,
It’s always best to use E5 supreme + stuff. I’ve always used shell v-power and Xeramic oil.

97 octane+ like @Billywatts says is your best bet! Grice Racing Engines has told me to run on 97+ so anything like BP Ultimate (97 Octane), Shell V Power (99 Octane) is perfect!

Then mixed with any good quality full synth oil at 2% (10L - 200ml oil / 5L 100ml oil / 2.5L 50ml oil / 1L 20ml oil).

I have been told to run Millers which is a castor/synth blend for 1 -2 hours after my rebuild. Then move to fully synthetic stuff. Xeramic, XPS/Rotax, Castrol XR77, Silkolene Pro 2 etc.

Note: Never mix oils. Drain your tank before switching oils.

Ahh don't be silly! Thanks for getting involved and helping members mate, much appreciated.

Before I got my engine rebuilt I was just using 95. Meeting before last I got a proper rough batch, looked green and smelt like pond water. Went alright though.... :unsure: :ROFLMAO: Must of got the bottom of the tank before they went over to E10 or something. Used 97 since!
