Just curious what weight and what brand of oil do you use in your mowers????
Mobile 1 10-30
what the manufacturer recommends. I'd suggest looking it up for the brand engine your mower has and use it.
I don't think that the brand is as much an issue, but you need to follow the engine manufacturers recommendation on the viscosity. My Kohler uses 30 weight, but my Kawasaki requires 10-30. I use Castrol in both, but that's just my preference.
Dosent matter what brand just change it ON TIME!!
He already knows what he is using. His question is what brand and what weight are the readers of this thread using.
Me -- Castrol SAE 30 and I add 40 when it is 90 degrees and above. Gonna switch to Synthetic next oil change - the engine just turned over 100 hours.
yup, synthetic after a 100 hour break-in. some say 70 hour break-in. change oil filter with every oil change.
Valvoline Premium 10W-40.
Pennzoil 10w30 in my Honda, both Kawasakis and my 28 EFI Kohler. Filters are changed every other oil change as per the manual for the Kawis and Kohler.
Castrol 30W year round. Oil and filters are changed at 50 hours.
