Your fuel economy seems good Farmmower. I'd be happy with that.
Yea first change @ 5hrs without filter. Then 100hrs with filter, from memory.

I used the briggs 30 sae oil, the dealer mechanic said that's what they used to keep warranty happy.

I don't think theres any need for checking valve clearance etc at 50hrs, its a load of hog wallop on the dealers hehalf IMO. My dealer told me this aswell. However someone on here might be able to confirm whether the clearances need checking etc, but I don't think so.
