If your mower has seperate fill caps for the oil and the gasoline, then you have a 4 cycle or 4 stroke engine. In this case use SAE HD30 motor oil. If there is only 1 fill cap and it says oil & fuel mix, then you have a 2 cycle or 2 stroke engine.
Good luck

What kind of oil shoukd I use on a 24"cut MTD yard


I'm assuming you have a Tecumseh engine on there. But a Briggs would be the same. This is straight from Tecumseh, though (long story short is run 5W30 Oil or 0W30 Synthetic in it assuming winter temperatures:

What type of oil does it use?


I think all of these 4-stroke trimmers use SAE 30HD oil. I recommend synthetic. If you use synthetic, you can get away with using a multi-viscosity like 10W-30 if you can't find straight SAE30 synthetic, but don't use muti-viscosity conventional oil in these machines.

Where can I get the type of oil needed for the yard machine(22 in) push mower?


You can use regular SAE 30 weight oil from the auto parts store. If you use multi-viscosity, make sure it is synthetic, otherwise use straight SAE30 oil.

My B&S Yard Machine shoots out white smoke it also leaks out oil and gas mixed


If this is a 4 cycle mower (seperate places for gas and oil) and you are using a oil and gas mix as I am reading from your post that is your problem. When you use a gas&oil mix in a 4 cycle you get smoke and if fouls your spark plug. Also be more specific where the oil and gas mixed is leaking from. I SUGGEST THAT YOU DRAIN OUT THE GAS&OIL MIX AND CLEAN THE SPARK PLUG OR REPLACE AND FILL WITH STRAIGHT GAS AND SEE HOW IT RUNS.

Good luck

What type of oil to use when changing oil


For any four cycle engine (engines with separate oil and fuel fill locations) use high quality detergents in the following viscosity.

For Briggs & Stratton engines use an SAE30 oil above 40 degrees F (4 C) and below this temperature use 5W-30.

For Tecumseh engines use an SAE30 oil above 32 degrees F (0 C) and below this temperature use 5W-30.

For Kohler L-Head engines use an SAE30 oil above 32 degrees F (0 C) and below this temperature use 5W-30. For Kohler Overhead Valve engines use a 10W-30 above 0 degree F (-18 C), and below this temperature use a 5W-30.

For Honda engines,10W-30 is recommended for general use, and above 55 degrees F (10 C) you can use an SAE 30.

For MTD Brand engines, SAE 10W-30 is recommended for general, all-temperature use.

Oil? Gas? Additives?


Small engines like to see SAE30 oil. This is assuming a 4 stroke engine of course (if you have an oil filler spout and dip stick you have a 4 stroke engine). Use regular unleaded gas, and personally I mix STA-BIL into ALL of that gas I use with my small engines. I have too many carburetors to take the chance of needing to rebuild them in the spring.
