Engine oils used in cars and trucks contains ZDDP, which results in higher deposits and spark plug fouling. High ash content lead to pre - ignition due to combustion deposits Single grade oils are viscous, which result in deposits & smoke. Truck and car engine oils do not contain a solvent, which is required for a 2 - stroke engine because it has to mix with petrol.
