What is the petrol to oil mix for the RM6 Raleigh Runabout? And where can I obtain or see a user manual?

I have a rm6 which I used for a while on NACC rallies,I ignored the old sticker on the tank and ran it (quite happily) on 32:1.
Modern oil is so much better than it was in the 60~s/70~s,if you ran the old mixtures I am sure it would oil up th plug a lot.

Anything that you need to know about the RM6 let me know as I have a book that covers that whole range of RM~s. There are a range of pre-mixes in the book that cover different oils. They are as follows:
running in is the first column and then normal running is the next mixture ratio.
BP oil 16:1 20:1
BP Zoom 16:1 20:1
Castrol 12:1 16:1
Esso 2T 12:1 16:1
Mobiloil T.T. 12:1 16:1
National Benzole Hi-Fi 16:1 20:1
Duckham~s 20:1 20:1
Shell 2T motor oil 20:1 20:1
I hope this helps you and like I said if you need any other info drop me an e-mail.
