You can use no detergent 30wt but it's going to smoke a lot and will carbon up the engine and exhaust quicker than good two stroke oil. And these days it's not any more common than two stroke oil.

I use synthetic two stroke oil in my saws and other two stroke implements (and in my off road motorcycles back when I still rode them). I like Redline Allsport because it's a low deposit oil and because it makes the exhaust smell good.
