    Just purchased a Fastrak 52" with 20 HP Honda. The Hustler manual says change the oil after 5 hours use and the Honda manual says to change it after 1 month or 20 hours. Which is correct? I purchased Opti-4 oil from my dealer to run in the mower which will extend the warranty for two additional years. I noticed he put in SAE 30 and the manual calls out 10W30. Is there that much difference and I am wondering if it will void the warranty in anyway?

    Change your oil per the Hustler manual.
    I would check with Honda on oil recommendations, or at least go by what there manual says, I cant possibly give advice on a Honda warranty question.
    Although I have heard of people running opti oil for years with no problems at all.
    You can private message this person, his name is Jim Needham, he is a Honda rep and expert, here is a link to his profile, you can PM him from there.
