    Hi I just purchased a new Mini Z with 19hp Kawasaki. I was wondering what type of oil to use. The dealership recommended Kohler oil? They said it had a better anti-foaming agent. I just want the best oil for my new mower that I plan to keep for a long time! Thanks

    A good quality 10W30 is what we recommend.
    The Kohler oil is a good oil, and what the dealer said is true it is a anti foaming oil.
    Stick with a good name brand oil and you will be fine.

    How about going to a synthetic in the 24 Honda?

    No problem with that, just wait until the motor is broken in, I would wait until about the 50 hour mark.
