Oil type??

What oil do you guys use for your XR2 ??

I was using quick silver but it is very expensive here in Poland. I have found much cheaper 2stroke oil made by statoil. It is TCW-3 semi synthetic oil.
What do you think about it?? Can you recomend me some good 2stroke oil??

Quicksilver is probably one of the cheapest 2 stroke oils on the market so your goin to pay more money for a different make i would of thought? Ive always religously stuck by merc racing oil and there mix ratio's but alot of the other guys in 2 litre use all sorts of other makes of oil! Amsoil, royal purple......... theres so many out there now!
