For the past few years I've been using cheapest Walmart Marine oil at 50:1 and there is zero smoke. Quite a contrast to some of the guys I did bikes for pulling into my yard with 32:1 or even 20:1. I can follow their trail for miles all the way back to where they live.
Let's not even mention those who follow the manuals 16:1. Which is for those in china where 2 stroke oils are rare so they use motor oil. Sometimes drained from their car.
