It is a 2 stroke, like my motor oil, this is the first time I have left my motor down out of the water.

50:1 is 50:1, pretty much the standard mix for a carbed 2 stroke outboard.

explanation from a previous post...

2 smokes are very inefficient at low rpms.
Up to 40% of the fuel/oil mix is blown out the exhaust, unburned.
Running at low rpms coats the inside of the exhaust housing
which will trickle down and leak out the gap between the lower unit and prop.
