They sell Sig Castor at my tiny hobby store for $6

THE #1 LUBRICATING OIL FOR BLENDING GLOW FUEL Over the years, CASTOR OIL has proven to be one of the most effective lubricants for glow model airplane engines. Castor Oil lubricates and protects your engines over a wide range of operating conditions, including the extreme high temperatures that an over-lean needle valve setting can cause. Use straight or blend 50-50 with a synthetic oil like KLOTZ KL-200 RACING LUBRICANT. NOTE: If you are using a brand of fuel that is short on oil, you can add 5 oz. of castor oil to 1 gallon of fuel to raise the fuel’s total oil content approx. 3%.

2MUCH is 100% correct.

A few ounces of added CASTOR is excellent protection for your motor (although castor comprises
30% of Omega's total oil content).

Just add it and move on before we start a religious war here....

YOU MAY TOP UP A NEW GALLON BOTTLE WITH CASTOR OIL.
THIS WILL GIVE YOU 20%OIL .
I USE BENOL CASTOR OIL (KLOZ) FROM TOWER HOBBIES
