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.

If it has the Tecumseh engine..
Above 40°F Straight SAE 30W
Below 40°F down to -20°F Straight SAE 10W or SAE 5W30 or
Below 40°F down to -40° SAE 0W30 Synthetic
Using multigrade oils above 32°F will increase your oil consumption. SAE 10W40 is not recommended.
Per the manual, all the oils should be marked A.P.I. Service SL/SJ, but you may have to use something to a newer standard. E.G.: Service SM.
The oil sump capacity is 1-5/8 U.S. Pints or 0.76 Liters.
Hope this helps.
