The additive is probably good. Not sure about the oil? Too much may cause bad deposits on the underside of the valves, limiting flow. If you want to add oil, 2 stroke water cooled designated oil may be better? Not sure if Marvel would burn off as well? Suggest no more than 100:1 mixture if that much.
If you see any smoke out of the exhaust you may be using too much oil.
