Anyone have any experience running this oil in the old "loopers"? I have always run the traditional dino oil and just learned to eat the smoke.
Some one suggested this recently and that it would reduce the smoke. I would appreciate a few more opinions/concerns.
Thanks

Ran it in a Yamaha 90. Smelled better going downwind compared to YamaLube but cost maybe $3-$4 more per gal jug.
Most synthetic blends should smoke less than dino oils unless you gotta decarb anyway.
This a oil injected or pre-mix motor? Mix ratio is different sometimes.

I think it's a VRO/VRO2 motor. (Variably mixed and injected)

I've always run standard Penzoil 2 stroke, I also premix at the tank and run a standard fuel pump.

The smoke is one of the best parts of fishing!

Its good oil. Not as good as XD100 but just as good as penzoil and others. 50:1 ratio for this oil if mixed with fuel. Its rated as a TCW3 oil.

Thanks for the replies. I eliminated the VRO and premix in the tank. The old Ocean Runner has been great to me for many years. Looks like I'll start feeding her some XD50 or maybe the XD100. Ordering in bulk so just wanted to make sure I wasn't about to make a regrettable mistake.
