We always ran my sisters Banshee 40:1 and it ran great for years. With that said we ran a good oil.

We run both of Jacks KTM 200's at 40:1 using Amsoil Dominator 2 cycle oil.

Ahh what the heck. I run Klotz Benol at 40:1 with octane booster mixed with 93 pump gas. My Octane should be around 96-98 with the booster. Everything runs good, don't have any plug fouling problems or excess spooge.

Doesnt the ethanol they add to gas act as an octane booster?

I may be wrong, but the way that I understand it, the ethinol actually helps draw oxygen into the cylinder and helps things burn cleaner. It can also cause jetting problems if your engine is not jetted for that type of fuel. As for the oil ratio I run, I have found 40:1 to work just great. I like running Klotz oils with the benol, but when funds are tight the Yamalube works pretty well too at the same ratio. For air cooled engines I will drop to 32:1 for those.
