Default 2-stroke fuel in a 4-stroke

Should I be running my FS Magnum 1.20 on my 2-stoke fuel? What is the difference anyway?

as long as you have the recommend amount of oil in your fuel your all set. usually is about 18%-20% oil is good. also 4 strokes like a little castor. i use a fuel that has a mix of synthetic and castor oil, Which is the Omega. i use omega 15% in my os FS.70 and my .46fx with no probs. go fly!

One question, since you use omega, and that is the only fuel I buy. There are 2 fuels with 15% ONE for 4 strokes and another for 2 strokes, now I always had 4 stroke engines so I bought the first one. Now I have a TT 120Pro and I am courious if I can use the same 4 stroke fuel, so is the 4 stroke fuel sutable for 2 stroke also or is it the other way around? Last question is since omega makes a 20% fuel for car engines, what is the diffrence? I know that some plane engines run better with a little more nitromethane so what would happen if I run car gas in an airplane engine?
