Re: 4-Cycle Engine Oil Detergent/non-detergent

Mick now I'm confused, just checked the ops. manual and it calls for ND oil. The pump is an Annovi (Italian) Engine is Honda calls for 10w-30 detergent, so far it's Mick 1 Manual 1 LOL

Re: 4-Cycle Engine Oil Detergent/non-detergent

I can't comment on what manual says. All I was saying is, I'd question the dealer's comment about detergent oil and foaming.

Re: 4-Cycle Engine Oil Detergent/non-detergent

Well, I dug up this old thread because I am borrowing a friend's 6 HP Briggs/Stratton push mower (Murray) and she gave me a quart of 30w non-detergent oil for it. I told her I would change the oil, but was wondering about the non-detergent; I also didn't even know they still made non-detergent oil. Anyway, I think I will get some 10w-30 decent oil for it. Should that be okay - 10w-30, that is?

IMO:
No oil filter, non detergent.
Oil filter, detergent.

Thats what I have been taught, and hasn't failed me yet... Yet...

Re: 4-Cycle Engine Oil Detergent/non-detergent

With gas and oil prices as high as they are, I've gone to using a cup of straight Tide Ultra in all my 4 stroke equipment. Works so well, I'm on my 4th load.. err, mow with it.

Re: 4-Cycle Engine Oil Detergent/non-detergent

I definitely would not use that Walmart ND oil in the engine. The stuff I've seen is the "Accel" brand and has the API SA classification. That's an OLD OLD spec, and is likely Group I oil. In my opinion, you don't want that in anything. Buy a modern oil, filter or not, and you'll be just fine.

Cheers,
Jason

Yep 10w30 should do you fine. Or the 30w if you wish.

As a side note I Would like to see a failure in a small engine that was caused by the oil in it. Because I have not yet seen one and do not actually believe it happens.
