Please don't let Bob the Builder down the street convince you to run that at a 50:1 ,mix! 24:1 would be my minimum. I run mine at 16:1 as I share the gas can with other small hp motors requiring 16:1

For the little bit of fuel that will use, cost shouldn't be a big concern. From the website:
G-OIL® 2-Cycle Green Outboard Engine Oil is a superior performing engine oil engineered for all makes and models of outboard engines and personal watercraft as well as ULTIMATE BIODEGRADABLE, the highest biodegradability ranking as determined by ASTM Standards (2.1 ASTM D-5864)
Belray also makes a biodegradable TC-W3 oil:

Even though the motor looks excellent, be sure to check the coils as many are cracked just from age.

Trust the members that are trying to keep the motors alive, not the bean counters. Its always easier to add extra oil than rebuilding the powerhead... if it doesn't melt or blow up.
