Oil for running in an MVVS 116 NP

Had this engine so long I've lost the oil they sent with it to run it in. Recommendation on a substitute would be appreciated.

Perfect - not the easiest to find but my DA 200 has 350 flights on the stuff and still looks fantastic inside. Nowadays I just run Redline 40:1 from day 1 and things seem to go great from there :)

Yep, Redline is my recommendation too. 40:1 during break-in and from then onwards :D

I managed to buy 4 gallons of the stuff from the US with a little help from a friend so luckily I have a bit of a stash now :lol:
