.049 Fuel. . . and various questions

Hello all,
I have a Testor's McCoy .049 that I restored back in the spring (link to restoration). I have been wanting to start it ever since but have not had any fuel for it.

What kind of fuel do I need and where can I buy it?

Last time at was at my LHS they said they do not carry 1/2A engine fuel. Can I buy it online, if so where? I may go to the LHS today, if I do what should I look for when buying fuel?

I do have some Nitro fuel for another engine. The sticker on the jug says "2 & 4 cycle. . . .18% oil content. . . .10%Nitro" Would this fuel be fine to try and start the .049 with?

It's probably easy to tell I have never dealt with RC IC engines before.

Thanks in advance,
Nicholas Morgan
