Default Homelite C-72 OIL?

I have just acquired a C-72 Homelite. Was wondering what oil I should use for the premix? My Zip takes 30wt, but the C-72 just gives the ratio.
Thanks in advance!

I would get a qt of "2-cycle oil" for use in air cooled engines. This is a better grade of oil than "outboard motor oil" ( water cooled) and just mix it to the ratio on the saw.
