Default adding oil to my fuel

I have Sidewinder Pro race fuel with 16% nitro and 10% oil.
I want to add some oil.
Can some one tell what alternative synthetic oil to use?
Can I use motorcycle or car oil because nearest hobby shop is 300km away?

Don't use motorcycle or car oil![X(] It would ruin your engine in no time at all. Is that the only fuel you can buy around your area? If not just buy some fuel with a higher oil content. But if you really want to add oil to your fuel then use some of this.

Klotz oil is usually sold in motorcycle shops. Why do you think motorcycle oil would ruin his engine?

It's not the right mix of oil. Yes it is sold in motocyle shops as an additive. It's not the same as 2 stroke oil you normally use when mixing your fuel.

I use Klotz oil in the pre-mix for my quads. It's a great 2-stroke oil. I don't see why adding a couple drops of any 2-stroke oil to your Nitro would hurt anything, after all they are all 2-stroke engines. I've heard of people adding a couple drops of Marvel Mystery Oil to their Nitro with success.
