here's what I say

if you change oil and filter regular when you're s'posed to, it doesn't much madder what you use.
They ALL work



I use full syn in everything because it's superior lubrication in every way compared to conventional oil
It's a machine
Machines love lubrication
I prefer the best lubrication available

Are you a 50 or 100 our guy?

hours?

I start thinking about it at 50
but more often than not, by the time I actually get a round tuit, it's 75 or more

lawn and garden stuff, generators, pressure washers, etc every spring regardless of hours
but more often than not, it's summer before I get around to that too :lol:


don't over think it, BigSlim
Heat/lack of cooling air flow is far more important to air cooled engine life than chosen oil band/type
