When I fuel up my oil pressure goes up i.e. 1/2 tank of fuel over 80 on the oil guage at same time fuel consumption goes up drasticaly

Adding fuel to the fuel tank is absolutely unrelated to to any change in engine oil pressure.
The oil pressure will be higher when the engine oil is cooler and lower when the engine oil has warmed up.

If you are experiencing abnormally high oil pressure on start up I suspect you are running the incorrect type and grade of oil in the engine. Only use the oil specification(type and grade) listed by the manufacturer for your engine and nothing else.. If you are unsure what that is then it is specified in your owners manual for the vehicle.

High fuel consumption has also nothing to do with your engine oil pressure. If you are experiencing high fuel consumption then please read and examine these factors..........................

What sort of oil does my harley rocker c take

You do not mention engine or primary or transmission. HD SYN3 can be used in any or all. I believe for the engine the best is Harley-Davidson 360 (20/50) in most operating temperatures I am operating in. If you know how HD tested, developed and otherwise came up with this oil it is quite impressive. You could use synthetic (SYN3) but I don't I just use the regular HD 360 motorcycle oil. You do need motorcycle oil because it has necessary, very beneficial additives that are not in automotive oils. Unless you are running in very hot outside temperatures I do not see the benefit to SYN3 but if one has money to throw around it is very good oil also. Thing is to change it always before it gets a chance to break down and or turn dirty. HD recommends changing the oil and filter at 5000 miles or 8000 km intervals and I would recommend that or sooner in very hot or dusty conditions. Using synthetic oil does not extend these mileages between changes. If you have been using one type of oil for an extended time it is usually not recommended to change to a different type i.e. HD 360 to SYN3 or vice versa. If you do not know what was used before pick a type now and stick with it. SYN3 is all 20W50. (The W stands for winter.) The oil has a viscosity of 20 cold and will not thin out more than a 50 weight would when it is hot.

Harley recommends HD 360 engine oil as follows:

H.D. Multi-Grade SAE 10W40 as excellent for cold weather starts below 50 degrees F and for use with lowest ambient temperature below 40 degrees F (4 degrees C).
H.D. Multi-Grade SAE 20W50 as good for cold weather starts below 50 degrees F and for use with lowest ambient temperature above 40 degrees F (4 degrees C).

H.D. Multi-Grade SAE 50 as poor for cold weather starts below 50 degrees F and for use with lowest ambient temperature above 60degrees F (16 degrees C).

H.D. Multi-Grade SAE 60 as poor for cold weather starts below 50 degrees F and for use with lowest ambient temperature above 80 degrees F (27 degrees C).

For transmission and/or primary use SYN3 or FORMULA+ TRANSMISSION AND PRIMARY CHAINCASE LUBRICANT (Part No. 99851-05, US quart size).

I won't deal with fork oil at all.

Whatever you do, NEVER use anything but DOT 4 Brake a DOT 4 system. Also be careful with it as it will eat away any and all painted surfaces and even the black powder coated brake fluid reservoir coatings.
If DOT 5 goes into a DOT4 system or DOT 4 goes into a DOT5 system all rubber brake system components will be destroyed.

I have a craftsman blower /vacum 29cc 4 cycle 425 cfm ? would like to know if you use 2 cycle oil in the gas or is this a gas only unit , second question is there is an oil port on the back of the motor...

Hi lindseyhpaint...
DO NOT MIX OIL WITH GAS ON A FOUR CYCLE ENGINE use gasoline only, the oil will go into the oil port on the back of the motor with an oil level line (crankcase).
You will need a good grade of 10W30 to use in the crankcase.
Please take time to rate me

Need to know how many quarts of oil and grade

I do not know what engine you have, but the pic above is for a push mower, so here goes. About 20 ounces of 30W motor oil should be sufficient for most push mower engines.

What oil grade do I use in my 20hp huskavarna riding mower

use a good grade of automotive engine oil which is called 10w30 weight.

measure the amount of oil that you drain out so you will know approximately how much new oil to put in. then check your dip stick and adjust to get the exact amount of oil.

Kia sedona. Ticking sound from engine compartment that increases when accelerating, more apparent in cold weather.. any ideas???

hi how are you? a ticking sound would be from one or more bad lifters. tyr to give it a oil change with a lighter weight oil for the winter.if that does not get rid of it then your lifters are no good and would need to be replaced.
