Remember the fuel/oil goes through the crankcase to lubricate before it is burned in the cylinders.

But engineered 2 stroke oil with a synthetic TCW-3 additive would be my choice in your 20 year old motor.
Now the 2 stroke cloud appears at start up and idling ... Now if the cloud bothers you I don't know that a 100% synthetic will correct what a 2 stroke does. SMOKE... WHICH IS GOOOOOD! .... Hope this helps ... <'TK><
TK thanks for your input. I was thinking along the same line of thought as you. It's almost embarrassing sitting on the lake smoking like a freight If I make a good run for several miles it really helps with the smoking.
