You don't need it, just buy some 2 stroke oil like motul 710. It's ready available from opieoils and costs way less.

Firstly thanks for reply

After lots of research Idemitsu is the most common 1st choice that I could find.
I dont want to mess around and quality balanced with price is my aim.

is Idemitsu available in europe?

Best alternative = ?

Premix oils are all pretty much the same, just make sure that they burn clean. Motul 710 is a great compromise, i really love it.
If you're talking about engine oils then any synthetic will do, as long as it burns clean when injected. Mobil 1 sucks in this regard. oils like redline, royal purple, valvoline and a bunch of other makes are all great choices.

Since you are lucky enough to live in the uk just take a look at opieoil's catalogue, i'm sure you'll find the right oil!

Yep, I like them a lot. Extensive catalogue and huge discount campaings. If you are on the rx8oc or our little forum (i can't remember) you should be entitled to their club discounts
