B&S 22hp, 24hp, 25hp oil requirements
I've read a number of posts on the right oil to put in these 3-5 yo GT5000/YT#/LT#, etc. I've been following the manual. but my question is how many have used synthetic oil instead of regular and have you found any differences?
I saw a couple of posts on the quality of oil going down hill recently for several reasons, and was wondering if anyone has seen any better operating performance with the 10-30w synthetic oils rather than regular?
My gt5k engine blew up after 3 years because of dirt/dust problems already mentioned in the badly designed 24hp, and they replaced it with the newer design (screw down filter cover). NO problems yet, but I'd like to keep it that way.
