    I am just picky like that. I also don't need or want to be cheap. Not all oils are the same. Each oil will have differing amounts of additives and/or detergents in them. Oil made for small air cooled engines is definitely different than oils made for automobiles. And "branded" versus "cheap" oil may very well be the same but since I don't really know, I'll just stick with my gut; hasn't steered me wrong yet.

    If and when my $8 a jug of Briggs SAE30 oil that I use in my Vanguard causes my engine to blow up one day, you guys will all be the first to know!

    Yes we know oil for autos is different then air cooled,...
    But your stating that the manufacturers oil is better then another brand cause of your gut? Not researching the facts? So your statement is false.

    Where's all the info?
    I'm not on here promoting false oil facts.

    With the claims your making, I'm asking for your facts....

    So paying for b&s oil that is made for them by an actual oil company, that you can find cheaper in a non power sport building is better?
    Did you research what additives are in said oil? Find out what additives are needed is said vehicles?

    I bet you think you’re the smartest in the room don’t you? And yes you do tell lies. Seems to me a genius like yourself would know that motorcycles have wet clutches and you CAN run full synthetic oil. Full synthetic that’s formulated for the clutch lubrication. Dude stop posting my BS meter can only handle so much.
