Ill weigh in on what I've seen over the years. Keeping cooling fins and blower housing clean is often overlooked. Cleaning any oily grass buildup off helps the cooling. 100 hours on oil changes. Personally I've always preferred synthetics for their better resistance to thermal breakdown. A few bucks more per change is worth adding longevity and a higher margin of protection if you ever do run hot.
