*CAUTION: Air cooled engines run hotter than automotive engines.
The use of non-synthetic multi-viscosity oils (5W-30, 10W-30, etc.)
in temperatures above 400 F(4°0) will result in higher than normal
oil consumption. When using a multi-viscosity oil, check oil level
more frequently.
**CAUTION: SAE 30 oil, if used below 400F (4°0), will result in hard
starting and possible engine bore damage due to inadequate
lubrication.
