if it takes you nearly an hour to make a stir fry you are doing something wrong.  And here is a tip:  make sure your wok is hot before adding the oil.  Best not to heat the oil in a cold wok.  The oil will be hot before the wok.  If doing cooking in batches allow the wok to reheat before doing the next batch.

SimondB What kind of oil is best? Olive?

I use sunflower seed oil but other vegetable oils that stand the heat work just as well. I do not use olive oil as it has a distinctive taste and smell.

I use canola oil.  As Ron above says most vegtable oils are OK.  Certainly wouldn't use olive oil at high heats.  Ok if you are just sautéing something.
