10W40 or 15W40 that meets A3/B4 spec. Cheap and change it often.

PS semi synth is mineral oil with a dash of synth in it.

PPS put the old stuff in the fuel tank for premix.

OK, I'll use 10W40 then. I will stick to Castrol power 1 2 stroke for premix though haha.

The best i ever read about rotary oil. BTW i always change oil filter and drain the air cooled oilcooler too. Rotary oil must cool the engine from the inside and my 12A experience is mineral oil transporting heat better. Change interval is shorter then synthetic oil interval.
