The specific mower oil recommendations for your engine are dependent on the engine’s manufacturer. Your best source of information regarding the type and grade of lawnmower oil for your unit’s engine would be the engine manual. EU law now states that manufactures can no longer state that you have to use their brand oil in their machines. Using a different oil won’t affect the warranty either. As long as the specifications match the suggested manufactures oil.
The Society of Automotive Engineers has developed a grade of motor oils which will indicate the viscosity (thickness) and temperature in which engine oil can be used. This is called the SAE, it is printed on every bottle of oil and will also indicate whether or not the oil is synthetic.
