Premixed 2-strokes always seem to smoke quite a bit in my experience.

Do you mean smoke through the tell tale? and if so, when is this happening? Is it when first starting up before the tell tale water has started coming out?

Or is it happening when engine has been running for a while? - Also, is this while boat is in water or while boat is being run-up and flushed?
