Just did the first break-in oil / filter change after a few mowings.
Put in Redline 10w-30!

Nice job dude. When I got my first car, I was obsessed with using only the best oil and at the time, I believed that was redline. Now I realize redline is overkill for what I own. Enjoy the warm and fuzzies and super clean lawn mower engine!

IMO, oil is the least of your worry. The ethanol in fuel is the killer in this type of engine.

Most likely you can, BUT you have to remove the transmission to drain it. Some of them you can use a mighty vac to change it.

I would have waited 50 hours before I went synthetic.

It says on the Redline bottle to wait until 2000 miles before you use it on a new engine.

Talk about an overkill. I doubt it would make a difference.

A bit overkill on the oil but WAY overkill on the 93 octane, that very low compression B&S engine will run best on 87...

This is a common misconception. A 93 Octane will ignite just as well in a "low compression" engine as a 87 octane, it just has more PRE-ignition resistance. (Emphasis on PRE)

Premium fuel is actually much better for your mower for a different reason all-together. It many parts of the country premium 91 or 93 octane is ETHANOL FREE pure gasoline!!

I personally run ethanol free premium fuel from Country Mark Co-op gas stations and get more run time per gallon as just one benefit I have noticed!


I urge people not to wait 100K to change out the fluid in their transfer case units. -Kestas

After 5 hours, I dumped the Honda oil, as per the manual, and put in M1EP 5W-30 on my brand spanking new Honda mower and only use non-ethanol gas.
