Make sure you know what oil it is programmed for. The mechanic has to go into The computer are switch the program if you want to run their full synthetic or the opposite if it is already programmed for the XD100 and you want to run anything else.

What would you recommend to use as I only really use our Rib on holiday in Scotland.

The only downfall to having it programmed for XD 100
Is that it is the only oil you can use once that is done. If it is programmed for XD 100 and you use regular two strike oil the motor will not be lubricated well enough. As long as you plan ahead and keep done on hand you are fine.
