Help me know this mystery oil.
So I bought a GPR with a low compression engine. It is in the shop now getting a top end. I asked the previous owner what kind of oil he ran in it and he said he doesn't know. So I drained the tank and put some Yamalube 2w in it. The oil I drained has a dark color when in a gallon but if you take some on your finger it's actually like a light blue color. Has kind of an odor to it. I am wondering what this oil could be, I hope it's not regular outboard oil but with the stupidity of people nowadays you never know.

It's probably just some TC-W3 oil and is probably fine. Of course, it won't hurt to get rid of it and use something that is known to be good.
