5W30
SAE 30
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 oit.
Your four-cycle
engine will normally consume
some
oil--therefore,
check engine oil level regularly approx-
imately every five hours of operation arid before each
usage. Stop engine and wait several minutes before
checking oil level. With engine level, the oif must be to
FULL mark on dipstick (refer to figure 14). Change
engine oil after the first five hours of operation,
arid
every twenty-five hours thereafter_
