  • Just another oil question

    True but not yet, Today I changed the oil on my Toyota Yaris, then done my Honda wipper snipper or weed eater or whatever you call them, next was the Jeep oil and fuel filter and then the mighty Briggs and Stratton lawn mower, so I have some Castrol 5-30 full synthetic car oil left in the bottle, now is there any reason the mower wont like this stuff ?????

    Im pretty sure a lawnmower motor will run fine with water in it. Lol

      Briggs states straight 30W high detergent unless the mower is going to be operated below 40 degrees F. Wouldn't hurt to ask them.

        Wipper snipper, lol

        That has oil in it? Not mixed with the fuel? Never seen a 4 stroke string trimmer.

        Nope, should work perfectly fine... the 30 number indicates at what weight it should perform at full proper operating temperature. And just about all yard maintenance stuff runs a 30 weight.

          Thanks everyone the reason I asked was the B & S uses a splash feed for the oil

            It does, and the weight grade of an oil determines what temperature ranges it was formulated to run in... and the 30 is indicative that it will work as a 30 weight oil when at proper outdoor operating temp, hence a 10w-30 is perfectly at home in a yard maintenance piece of equipment that tends to only be operated in moderate temps. It'll just never need to work as a 10w oil.
