Warranty issues related to the Vanguard Oil Guard System aside (external oil tank, oil cooler, etc).... Why would you use this oil instead of a similarly formulated synthetic 15w-50 HDEO oil from another brand?

15W50 way too heavy for my tastes. RT6 is all my mowers get.

Well, Briggs recommends it, and my OPE runs smooth and quiet with it.

Isn't the Ca ~ 1000 ppm and Mg ~ 950 ppm, two of the most common detergents.

Vanguard Syn 15w50 is a detergent oil and this viscosity was recommended by B&S for commurcial use or anyone mowing for long hours in hot weather. Since I mow less than an acre here in FL. I use SHELL Rotella T5 in 10w30 in my 20HP B&S twin. Ed

Im getting a new Ferris FW 35 delivered next week with the Vanguard EFI 28hp engine. Im thinking Ill change the oil at 5 hours and go with M1 15W50 over the Vanguard branded oil.
