2 stroke oil additive

I was thinking of trying to add 2-stroke oil to a tank of fuel. I know people have done it and it helps lube the injectors. Did i need to buy ashless or smokeless 2 stroke oil? Or are they the same thing? Everyone i found said ashless, so i just wanted to make sure i got the right thing so i don't do any injector damage.

as long as it ashless, I assume it will work fine, IIRC most people use the marine oil

you dont want to use a 2 stroke oil for chainsaws or weed eaters, they run a lot hotter than there marine or water cooled brothers. at the engine temps we run, you would never burn all the oil, and start gumming up things.

make sure its a TC-W3 rated marine oil.
