2 stroke oil

Having just had engine serviced the mechanic said I should be running my yamaha 90 autolube on yamahalube oil as other make are thicker and cause build up in injectors!
Is this true or can I use other makes?
What do you guys recommend?

He don't sell the yam oil which is why I thought I'd raise question, if he did then I'd assume it was so he could sell me it haha

That is BS especially the "injectors" bit as a Yamaha 90 Autolube has carbs not injectors.

True the Yam 90 has an oil injection system but you should have no issues as long as you use any Premium 2-stroke TC-W3 Outboard Oil

after years of using quicksilver oil, i listened to advice and now i use commercially available opus twc3 in 25litre drums and never looked back! costs me a fraction of what i was paying before.
