Default 4 stroke engine

I am thinking about getting my first four stroke engine and was wondering about a couple of things.
Do I need to get a 4 stroke glowplug for it or will a regular long reach work? Also, do I use regular glow fuel like 10% or will I have to use the fuel that is specifically designated for 4 strokes? :stupid:

The engine will most likly come with a glow plug but in the event it does not Atype F OS plug is as good a choice as you can make. A bit pricey but lasts almost forever.

Use regular two stroke fuel 10 or 15% and keep the oil content up there if you can around 18 or 20 %.
