For your climate, I would run your favorite 5w-40 and call it good. That chart is a little strange but either way, 5w-40 should cover you in a California climate.

Id agree with the 5/40, maybe go with the 15/40 for hotter weather? All of the oils listed would be fine.

I run Delvac 15w-40 in my Baby WEN (the 1250 watt version of that one). Just passed 15 hours of run time with an 8 hour run yesterday and seems to be doing just fine. Its still shedding a little metal into the oil, but I just changed it today at the 15 hour mark after having changed it at 1 and 2 hours previously. Still, runs strong with no issues.
