Can I use chain oil in my lawn mower?
It is ALWAYS best to follow the manufacturers recommendation as to which oil you use. This way you will get the best out of your mower and hopefully, with a little regular maintenance and cleaning, it will give many years of good service.
If you choose to use a different type of oil, you risk reducing the service you will get from the mower and you may even speed up its demise quite considerably.
Yes, you may use car oil in your lawnmower but it is not recommended to use multiweight oil. Use 30 weight only. Reason; the chemicals in multiweight won't cool the aircooled engine as well as 30 weight. I like Castrol 30 weight. There is no difference in oil for a lawn mower and oil for an automobile.
Craftsman 6.5hp lawn mowers can use two kinds of oil--"HD 30" oil, which is a single-weight SAE 30, or the same oil you put in your car. (If you have a Honda lawn mower, you have to run multigrade oil in it.) I always have a case of 5W30 Castrol sitting there, and that's what I use because it's right there already. I also have some 15W40 Rotella on hand, but I wouldn't put that…
Answer if it,s a 2 cycle mix gas 50 parts to 1 part oil, if it,s a 4 cycle . none, gas treatments will cause a lawn mower engine to over heat, I have small lawn equipment that used gas/oil ratio, I use a gas treatment in mower to keep from getting gunky over winter months, should I use a gas treatment for equipment that uses gas/oil ratio
Answer Yes you can use lawn mower gas for cars its gas so you daont have to worry? You need to be careful here. Many lawn mowers use normal gasoline, but some also use a mix of gasoline and motor oil (this is common with weedwhackers). Before you pour any gasoline into your car, make sure it's actually gasoline and not some kind of gas-oil mixture.
That depends. Is a manual push mower with no motor, or a motorized one? Oil is usually rated by viscosity and I would use a single viscosity oil in a mower. Multiviscosity oils have modifiers to keep them fluid under cold conditions (in a car engine) but still thick when hot. In a mower a 30w oil would be ideal. Use the cheapest oil (in the long run): Amsoil synthetic.
Yes, all two stroke oil can be used in any two stroke engine. It is cheaper to buy it in a gallon jug from the auto parts store than to use the little cans of lawn mower oil. NO... as there is a difference between air cooled 2 stroke oil and water cooled oil, Most makes of air cooled oil usually have a warning on it stating noyt for use in water cooled engines.
