Simplicity Javelin ZTR
20HP B&S V-Twin OHV
2+ Quarts Pennzoil Platinum 5W-30
Purolator PL10241 Filter

Also got two new spark plugs, new fuel filter, cleaned and re-oiled pre-filter, and a wash/wax.

I know it is overkill, but I paid more for this mower than I did for my first car. It gets fresh synthetic each spring (the manual actually recommends synthetic), Mobil up until this year.

Craftsman 42" Lawn Tractor, 22HP B&S Intek twin, is getting Delvac 1300 15w-40 and MC FL-400s this weekend. Florida tropical heat will be here soon.

Thanks to the bitoger's that suggested the MC 400 filter in my earlier post cheers
Troy-bilt 5500w generator is getting the last of the Rotella.

Pressure washer is getting Delvac also.

I changed it out at the end of last season.
I was using Quaker State Synthetic 10w30, but I put in
15oz 15w40 Rotella, 1oz Marvel Mystrey Oil.
It smoked a bit at the initial seasonal start, only took 3 pulls, but soon afterward it stopped and ran normal.

I have had the mower for one season, a Toro with B&S engine, and after a couple hours of usage I plan on dumping the current mix and going to Rotella T6. At the end of last season I was still getting some silvery debires out with a hot oil change.

Cub Cadet 1600 with a 17.5hp Briggs Vanguard engine:

Pennzoil Platinum 10w30 with a Napa 7035 filter; new air filter; new Champion spark plug; new inline fuel filter. Now if I had the blades sharpened I would be ready to mow.

Spring '09 - John Deere lawn tractor
Castrol Syntec 0w30 and Wix oil filter
Based on appearance of the oil, I probably won't change the oil until Spring '11.
