Use an SE or SF type oil within the range of 5W-30 to 20W-50. (The lower the number, the better the engine will start in cold climates.) A 10W-40 has a constant viscosity and will perform efficiently across a wide range of engine operating conditions. Higher numbers are usually recommended for engine running in hot weather conditions.
