Default Fuel 30% nitro 10% oil, can I up the oil content using synthetic ?

I have an 20 gallons of 30% nitro 10% oil car fuel. Is there a commercial synthetic oil that I can add to bring it up to 20% oil for use in airplane engines? If so, who makes it and where can I get it? Thanks... Charlie [email protected]

In the past, I have used Klotz oil. Couldn't tell you which one tho because it was many years ago. I think it was the synthetic type to be used on a helicopter engine.

I'm sure you are knowledgeable on the calculations required to increase the percentage of oil from 10% to 20%, and that it will also reduce the nitro content from 30% to approximately 27%.
