The difference can be anywhere from $9.00 / Quart to $60.00 / QT.

Without getting into technical details, air cooled two strokes need oil formulated for higher temps and protection from lean conditions where water cooled two strokes do not. The additives in oil which is rated for air cooled engines will leave deposits in a marine engine and if you use marine oil in your air cooled engine it will wear out in no time.
