    I may have missed part of the question but the only question I saw was "What kind of oil do you use?" That question makes me ask the question, "What kind of oil do I use in what?" Like I said, maybe I missed the complete question but without knowing what the oil is being used in I couldn't even begin to guess what type of oil to recommend.

    Let's assume it's in a lawn mower engine since this is lawnsite.
