I have 3 generators, 10 Hp Briggs & Stratton- 9 Hp Briggs & Stratton Vanguard and a Subaru 10 Hp engine.
I have several quarts of Kendall high mileage 10W40, is it ok to use in those engines?

The Kendall Data Sheet claims an HTHS viscosity of 3.9, so I would say definitely.

I think about anything would be fine to run in there.
Your talking about the simplest of motors.
Anything with a 10 or a 30/40/50 attached.

Good choice. When you run out of the Kendall, buy SAE40 or 15W40 for your generators.
