    When you goto premix, you will smoke a little more at idle.

    Reason is that now you are now running that same ratio all the time.

    With Variable Rate Oil injection, it is like 150>200:1 at idle and 30:1 at Wide Open Throttle.

    Also, double check your measuring when you mix.

    32:1 = 4 oz per gallon / 20 oz per 5 gallons
    40:1 = 3.2 oz per gallon / 16 oz per 5 gallons
