You say it is new so I assume you bought it from a dealer. If it were me and I had these questions about oil I would talk to your dealer because you might void the warenty if you use the wrong oil. Also you should have chainged the oil at 8 hours and then go from there. I have a 19hp on my scag. It has over 2900 hours and I change the oil & filter (use original Kawasaki filter)every 75 hours with 30 weight pennsoil for air cooled engines.
