maybe marvel mystery oil, regular engine oil, 2 stroke oil, just let it soak for a long time, i'd also check the bore before you do for lots of scaring, if it has over 100 psi of compression, it might last you for a while if you do get it going. though you'll have to end up rebuilding or replacing later on. 90psi would be low, it'll be hard to start though. and one thing that i do kinda like to stress, is to make sure, and keep a can for just the 2 cycles, mark it good, and make sure to tell the person to use only that, if you have no more, just leave it alone till you mix some more up.
