Anyone using mobil 1 or other synthetic in the mowers? What do you think? Brian
I switched to the Mobil one last season(16hp Briggs), I figure the price is not an issue for the small amount needed and the age of the engine being newer.
It could be psychological but I feel more comfortable with the synthetic.
I use "Car and Driver" oil in my truck and personal vehicle. My mower is my favorite pet.
I use Castrol Synthetic on my mowers and it works excellent. I've tried MObil before and it was also good. It's kinda like a whatever I can get my hands on but I mostly use Castrol for my mowers.
i use SYNERGYN and LUCAS additives in everything.
I use <B><I> ROTELLA </b></I> Synthetic in everything, it's around $12.99 a gallon and I use Mobil 1 filters.~NaTe
yep Mobil 1- works great, and on those cold spring or fall mornings the engine seems to turn over much easier. Anyone run synthetics in their two strokes- I used it last year, a little less smoke and no clogged ports or buildup.
NOt sure if amsoil is available in your area but its great stuff! i use it in everything. its a little pricey but it pays off in the end.
@ $7.49 a quart here i think I will stick to ROTELLA Synthetic. For the price of 2 quarts of amsoil I can buy a gallon of ROTELLA Synthetic. . ~NaTe
Amsoil in every thing for 15 yrs and don't regret the extra cost at all!!!!!
I'm with you on the Rotella synthetic.
When Wal-Mart started carrying it I bought every quart & gallon they had.
So far I've only put it in the hydraulic systems of the two Toro 325-Ds.
I'm ready though, next oil change it goes into everything.
Except maybe the 580-D. It specifies straight weight only.
Have you seen the Rotella synthetic in a straight 30 weight?
