Yes you can use synthetic oil. Use any brand you want.
for summer use use 30w
in winter (if you use for snow blowing) use 5w30.

I have a 1999 Chevy blazer 4wd with almost 194,000 miles. What oil is recommended for high mileage?


Well a lot of motor oil brands will have a high milage formula, I prefer synthetic oil for my engine but at 194k miles if you haven't used synthetic oil for the life of the engine it's kind of pointless to start using it now. On that model I believe the recommend change time for the oil is every 5k miles, I would start doing it at every 3k and not worry about synthetic.

What engine oil do I need for my yardman 6.0 HP push mower?


SAE 30 only; if using conventional oil. I recommend using synthetic engine oil. If you go with synthetic, you can use a multi-viscosity oil like 10W-30, but only use staight SAE 30 if using conventional oil. Many benefits to using synthetic oil. It cleans the engine as it runs, it provides superior protection and helps cool the engine parts better, and it almost assures you 100% that your engine won't fail because of the type of oil used.

I use synthetic oil in my cars and want to know if it is recommended or not in my new YTH2348 riding mower?


Hi, synthetic oil is not recommended in your lawn tractor. The reason for this is its basically too good for the load and conditions your mower engine operates under. Using synthetic oil would lead to your engine glazing the bore and consuming excessive oil. Regards Phil.

How often should i change tranny fluid, 3000 mi, 5000 mi, ?? I'm running Harley oil now do U recommend synthetic oils.


If you're running Harley oil, you're running either semi-synthetic or full synthetic. You bike came with H-D Syn3 20W50 fully synthetic oil in the transmission. They use the Syn3 in the engine, transmission, and primary now. You can use whatever you like. Amsoil, Royal Purple, and Mobil make oils that are suitable for this use but you'll have to check their website to determine which one they recommend.

What is the best engine oil for the mercedes e320?


The best oil for any car is 5W-30 synthetic, I personally recommend Mobile 1. 5W-30 Synthetic flows more rapidly to engine parts thereby reducing "dry start" wear. In addition, full (not part) synthetics contain fewer additives (they don't need them) than conventional oils. Conventional oil additives "burn off" rapidly (500-1000 miles) after an oil change and sludge accumulates over time as a result.

Synthetic oils use much less of these additives (5% vs 20-30%) than conventional (Dinosaur oil) so there's much less sludge to build up. Synthetic oil also has a more uniform molecule size, this extends oil longevity and reduces running temperature.

I've personally used Mobile 1 for many yeas in my cars and would recommend it although I'm quite sure that other FULL synthetics would offer similar benefits.

Petroleum-based oil or synthetic oil


Yes. BMW doesn’t recommend synthetic oil until the engine is broken-in. I notice that many bikes seem to require 10w-40 oil. Most manufacturers of course recommend their own specific name brand.,,
