From what I have gathered doing searches on the subject, just make sure it is ashless and add 1 oz. per gallon of fuel.

And most people run the cheap stuff from Walmart!

Why run 2 stroke in the fuel of a 6.0
I run stanadyne performance formula 8 oz. to 30 gals takes care of everything and pick up couple mpg.
