The 16 to 1 ratio was for running in, the 20 to 1 ratio was for after running in, but most people are now using a modern 2 stroke oil ( Silkolene being the favouite) at 25 or 30 to 1 with no problems, i personally use silkolene @ 30 to 1 in my Villiers with no ill effects

It will do no harm, but may be a bit smokey, less of a problem in the 50's than now !

Got to be honest I love the smell of two stroke smoke. Thanks for the advice I will hopefully get oil and petrol tomorrow.

Make sure you get pre mix oil and not injector, as the latter is thinner.
