With that in mind, we do not however change our oil type to compensate for the colder weathers.
I always run synthetic oil, all my cars and equipment all specify the same oil, so I just buy big jugs of it for not that much more than the cheap oil. plus, in the spring and fall, I never know when I'll be working in around freezing weather, so better to be safe than sorry in my mind.
