I use the Agip moto 2t fully synthetic low smoke stuff, smells like burning plastic when you've been thrashing the scoot, but I reckon its good. Comes up to temp quickly and absolutely no smoke at all when the engine is hot - unless you thrash it as stated before...in which case its usually just a bit of excess oil in the exhaust which burns off in a min or so.

Its about $27 for 1lt from any Gull petrol station or Agip stockist.

Before that I tried running the Motul 710 Ester mix full synthetic, but that was a bit thin I think - my exhaust was full of oil after a few months of running that stuff.

I've been using the Fuchs Comp 2T for a while now as it is JSAO FD certed (most synthetics are only rated JSAO FC) stripped the scooter after 3500KM yesterday, VERY clean inside, barely any soot buildup in the combustion chamber or piston crown, and absolutley no coking up in the exhaust port

old topic but I should mention here that Repsol's 2T Scoot is also JASO FD rated, which is $27 for a 1 litre pack here at Scootling.
