Lawn equipment just doesn't take that much oil I just use my leftover topoff oil.

When I got rid of my 08 Road King Classic 96c.i. the other year -- I had acouple quarts of Mobil 1 V-Twin 20-50 left over. I would mix half a quart with Rottela T6 Multi Vehicle 5W30 for my Ram in signature. Never seemed like an issue till the 20-50 oil was used up. Never tried it in lawn equipment though.

My JD D170 & Scotts (JD) S2554 both take 2 qts. The Scotts is old and tired and I use heavier oil in the summer...... it lasted this long, don't want to kill it myself. LOL

Yes! You can use it with no problem. I don't think lawn mowers are that picky smile

Just thought that MC 20-50 might be different...like the specs or additives.
