Many 2 stroke oils are that color.

That said, back in the day, motor oil is what 2 strokes used for premix. My grandfather's old "Blue Ribbon" outboard from the late 40's says "mix 1 pint SAE 30 motor oil per 2 gallons gasoline" on the engine cover. Its not the greatest protection, but the bigger issues would be carboning of the exhaust, gumming of ring lands, etc.
