I think the quality of the Lawn Boy oil speaks for it's self since it is not uncommon to see many many years of service out of their engines before needing a rebuild. Yes some of the newer style oils might be better but I think the engineers who designed the LB oil have come up with a more than proven product.

I would have thought you'd have seen this posted many times since then. But seriously, you can't go wrong with Gen II oil. There are better oils out there today and there are oils that are just as good for less money but for piece of mind, Gen II is hard to beat.

Nothing wrong with LB oil, Lb's have been known to run for 30 years or better using it. Do keep a watch on your muffler and exhaust ports though as they will carbon up and need cleaning every few years depending on how much you mow.

That's Neal alright, a few months ago he was using the old oil from his van at 8-1 :ROF

I had always put lawn boy oil in my Lawn Boys just because it seemed like the thing to do. All of a sudden an 8 oz. can went from $1.50 to $3.00 and I found a case of McCullough 24 pack of 16 oz. bottles for $38 bucks at Express Mower Parts. Everything seems to still work OK.

Yes!! Shawn, have you ever noticed how the used oil that comes out of an air cooled VW engine looks,smells,feels just like LB gen2 oil? Weird I know......
Might be a key to how the engineers refined it....:trink40:

It's all I use in my Lawn-Boy's. I was thinking of switching to Amsoil, but Lawn-Boy Generation 2 Ashless oil is simply the best. I will probably always use it.:fing32:
