20w-40 grade ( thinner oils would not be suitable because of the wear factor of the components)
brands are immaterial
if you change oil on a regular basis (5,000 miles) mineral oil is the most economical
synthetic oils still need changing as the additives used to neutralize acids , hold water in suspension and prevent wear are all consumed and do not last for ever
if it is an EFI controlled engine then change the plug/s to platinum plugs and forget changing again
if a normal ignition system then around 50.000 miles or when there is indication of misfires
the oil should be the correct type for the engine ( some vehicle engine oils are not suitable for the bike engine )and then as per the service schedule or every 5000 miles
yes perfectly ok ,i would use a turbo diesel oil thats suitable for diesel and petrol engines and the cheapest one at that then change oil every 6000 miles with a oil filter every third oil change ,Do not spend money on expensive boy racer market oil use what the trade uses something like shell rotella and do not be fooled by fancy adverts like liquid engineering and all that stuff these fancy long life oils cause more engine failures than any cheap oil which is changed at regular intervals to prevent a build up of internal clagg inside the engine
Most common oil used today is sae 5W30 this usually is recommended by manufacturer.However when you take your car in for an oil change most garages apply to that unless other wise advised.I think 5W30 is most suitable.
The service duration is affected by many things.. If you are driving in a dusty atmosphere or doing a lot of high RPM but low gear driving, change the oil every 2500kms. if you do mainly highway driving with low rpm but top gear, change the oil every 5000 kms. As a rule, I always replace the oil filter at every oil change even though toyota says you dont have to.
To change oil in a lawn mower you will need to acquire a fluid evacuation pump. Remove the dipstick and with the pump evacuate the old oil into a suitable container. Check your owners manual to determine how much oil to put in DO NOT overfill or the mower will not work. Make sure the old oil gets recycled.
