Thank you in advance for the assistance!

Do you need to change it? For avg Joe homeowner, I doubt its needed to be changed very often.

I've been running Honda Powered pressure washers with Cat pumps for well over 30 years with 30 grade non-detergent oil in the pumps. I have a machine here close to 30 years old that just started leaking a bit of water in the pump causing it to mix with the oil. Not bad considering the age. I also acquired one that needs a pump, it sat out over several winters and the water froze in the pump and ruined it, but that's a another story.

My Honda powered pressure washer calls for diesel grade 15-40 for the pump.
It has a sticker on the pump .

I have a Hotsy Shark. Hawk pump. Use non-detergent 30wt compressor oil from Oriellys with a little Lucas stabilizer, calls for ND 40wt. Had it about 20 years and has been fantastic. 11hp B&S I/C leaks a little oil but never gives trouble so I just leave it be.
