I'd go easy on the castor, but there wouldn't be any problem adding a little synthetic 2-stroke oil, I've used Klotz Techniplate Synthetic (it's even pink) to fuel. Lot of guys swear by castor, and I like a little in a 2 stroke, but you can get nasty carbon deposits on the valves of a 4 stroke if you run a lot of it. But sure, no need to waste the 4 stroke fuel you have, just realize that adding oil will reduce the relative nitro content. As long as the engine runs on it, it should be fine. You'll be in for a treat when you do use it up and get some regular 20/20
