Make sure your oil manufacturer recommends a 50:1 mix. Reducing oil content/ratio is okay as long as the oil is meant to be used that way. I say this because of a question I remember being posted some time ago by a new builder who asked if he could run Wally World 2 stroke oil at 100:1. I wouldn't want to try that.
