All 2 cycles today tend to run on a universal 50:1 gas/oil ration.

Problems and cause of smoking could be:
a-old gas/mix
b-try using the echo brand 2cycle oil
c-make sure you mixed the correct amount of oil with the correct amount of gas
d-make sure you shake up the can a little before you ad fuel-somtimes the oil will settle on the bottom.

if you have done/do all these and it still smokes somthing with your carb may be wrong or maybe even your fuel pump. Have never had this problem...but these are all sollutions (gas and mix related) to smoking gear.
