Generator oil-10w30 or 10w35 or 10w40??
realized how dirty the oil was with my powerback 5250 generator when i drained it hoping to fix the low-oil sensor problem. the genset has a sticker on it stating to use 10w30 but refer to the owners manual about cold weather operation(below 32). i use this about twice a summer for more then and hour or two(total of 10ish), and sometimes will use it for very exstended periods(week+) during the winter(2005 ice storm). i have at the moment 10w30 and 10w40 but was wondering if 35 even exists, and if it does is the happy medium best?
anyone know off the top of their head how much oil this bad-boy takes? if i remember right its 1.5 quarts???
thanks...hopefully new oil solves the low oil sensor problem to.
