What oil to use in Gas engine?

as the title asks what oil do you guys use in your Gas engines and where do you buy it from and what's the best "new" engine mix ratio?

I use Ryobi semi synth in my 50cc Christen Eagle and 30cc HPi Baja 5-B. It's a high quality oil used in all the small chainsaw/strimmers that most of the model engines are derived from and never had a problem. Plus it's from B&Q, so no bother getting hold of it! As for the mix, follow the engine makers instructions for break in would be my advice, as I've found them to all be different!
