Sorry for the absence. Password issues.Your manual should state either a 10W30 or 10W40 grade. I use AMSOIL small engine oil, a full synthetic, that is made for severe duty use in all my small engines. Most folks forget to do regular maintenance and this oil has a considerable long protection margin should you forget to change it out regularly. Here is a link and if you can't find it locally delivery is usually a couple of days if you order on-line. Works for me and I've been an AMSOILuser for over 30 years. Dutchy
Thanks for all the discussion guys! It really helped me in choosing the right oil.
On this subject, the manufacturer of my generator suggests an oil change every 50 hours. During extended outages that is every other day.
Using a highly rated and recommended synthetic oil does that allow longer time between oil changes. If so, what would you recommend?
Appreciate all your contributions.
