Using a good modern 2 stroke oil ( the favourite is silkolene) at around 30 to 1 is fine ( 3 measures of the tank cap instead of 4 per gallon as it states on the cap.)
Straight 30 or a modern 10/40 is fine in the gearbox
Automatic transmission fluid ( TQF or ATF) in the clutch case is the favourite, the recommended straight thick oil makes for a sticky clutch
