    I mix 40:1 in all my standups. i used to run 50:1 but with 10% ethanol gas it breaks down if it sits for more than a week. 40:1 is an insurance policy. the type of oil depends on the mods. i use maxima super m on my race skis, but if its stock or mildly modded i would suggest Quicksliver(or Mercury) 2 cycle plus oil.
