No, not missing anything , XL and XXL were all that was available back in the day when there were no specific mixing oils. XL was possibly one of the recommended oils for making up the mix then and will still be fine today. It won’t mix as easily or stay mixed as well as modern two stroke oils but has the ” body” to make the best of the bearings and sealing of an elderly engine – just mix it well and give it a good shake if it’s been standing. At the risk of repeating myself that’s why I like the Millers Classic two stroke oil – the best of the old and the new.
When all is said and done, back in the day your machine was possibly fed a diet of what ever was around and has survived to tell the tale so just get the proportion right and enjoy.
