If a 2 stroke engine is running properly, it is not lubricated by the oil/fuel mixture, it is lubricated by the oil. The petrol content evaporates from the mixture and leaves the oil behind. Plainly, the oil in the crankcase will be thrown around in a mist and gets drawn through the motor and burned but that's just an unfortunate side effect of 2 stroke operation.
