Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator
What type of oil do I need for a Coleman Powermate 5000 Generator with
a Subaru 10HP OHC gas engine? I don't have (and can't find online) a
manual for the engine. I'm guessing SAE 30? And is it detergent or
non-detergent and regular automotive grade or what? Any info is
You need a quart of regular old SAE 5W30 motor oil with detergent.
The engines on these generators are more or less the same as a lawn mower.
Don't forget to service/change the air cleaner when you change the oil, that should keep your generator producing full power.
