2 stroke oil

i have been running my XR2 on 33-1 with quicksilver oil.

i have just been to my local garage to fuel up 4 tonight and all they sell is this S**T looking MOBIL outboard oil, the quicksilver stuff i been using is green and this mobil 1 is red.

my engine seems happy (quite smokey) but runs really well on the quicksilver oil.

am i gonna do any damage if i use this cheap stuff from the garage or should i go on the hunt for some good stuff?
cheers

Cant go wrong with the recommended - merc hi-perf @32:1 as per Xr2 manual



Incidentally, the hi-perf oil is a synthetic blend i think not 100% synth

that would be 60-1 so you need somewhere between 30 and 40 litres of fuel for every liter of oil
