NOTE: Although
multi-viscosity
oils (SE30, 10W30,
etc ) improve starting in cold weather, these multi- vis-
cosity oils will result in increased
oil consumption
when used above 32°F Check your oil level more fre-
quently to avoid possible engine damage from run-
ning low on oil
Your four-cycle engine will normally consume
some
oil--therefore,
check engine oil level regularly approx-
imately every five hours of operation and before each
usage
Stop engine and wait several minutes before
checking oil level. With engine level, the oil must be to
FULL mark on dipstick (refer to figure 12). Change
engine oil after the first five hours of operation,
and
every twenty-five hours thereafter.
