Is synthetic oil approved for use?
We have recently modified our engine oil recommendations to state that you may now use a synthetic 5W30 or 10W30 oil in all temperature ranges. We recommend the use of Briggs & Stratton Synthetic Oil. The use of this high quality detergent oil assures compliance with Briggs & Stratton warranty requirements regarding the use of appropriate oil.
Engine break-in procedures using synthetic oil remain the same. Please keep in mind that the use of synthetic oil does not preclude you from performing your regularly scheduled maintenance (i.e. check oil, change oil, etc.)
Information regarding oil type, capacity and maintenance procedures are located in your engine Operator's Manual.
To determine if your manual is available for download from our website, please visit our Operator's Manual look-up page and enter your engine Model Number into the search field.
For assistance in locating your engine numbers, please visit our Model, Type, and Code Number Locations FAQ.
Additional oil information is available on our Oil Recommendations page.
