    Ill have the first 10 hours on my Liquid cooled 26 HP Kawi this weekend, and need to do the first oil change. I always use quality 30 wt in my air cooled engines, but am considering using 10w-30 in the kawai. The book says I can use either, and it does get pleny hot and cold here in the Northeast.

    What do you guys use most?

    I've been using 10w-30 in mine without any problems

    I would go with the 10w30. Just curious, your dealer doesnt offer the first oil change for free?

    Probably do the 10-30. I dont remember them offering any free oil change, but they are 20 somthing minutes away, and id spend more money on gas and drive time than 2 qts of oil and a filter.:)
