    Your location says Homestead I'm assuming that's Homestead Florida if so then I would only run 30w or even better 40w for this heat range DO NOT run multi-weight oil in this engine. Good luck:)

    I have been running Mobil 1 10w30 in my 17hp Kawi for 8 years with no problems, using in a new 27hp Lc Kawi also.
