    I have a 48" Exmark Metro walk behind with a 15 hp Kawisaki engine with about 200 hours on it. What weight of oil would you recommend that I use?

    You can run 10w-30 or staright 30 weight in it. I prefer straight 30 myself.

    straight 30 in the middle of the summer! It gets hot and needs this oil weight IMO

    I use Quaker State SAE 10W-30 oil in all of my 4 cycle engines (Including my Kawasaki engines), and I haven't had any problems at all!!! My dealer said it is better to use SAE 10W-30 vs. straight SAE 30.
