Question about Honda 2500 PSI Gas Pressure Washer
Your Honda 5.5 hp engine specifically calls for SAE 5W30 engine oil. Use a good quality oil in the engine, and change it every 50 hours of run time. The pump will take 30weight non-detergent oil.
Using non-detergent oil in the engine will probably void your warranty, and will certainly shorten the life of the engine. Non-detergent oils have not been recommend by engine manufacturers in nearly 20 years.
Oil is cheap, go ahead and spend $4 - 5 on a quart of high quality oil. Your engine uses about 20 ounces per change.

For non severe climates use 30w non detergent oil. I have also been using the same oil in the pump just to keep things simple. In very cold climates I would use multy viscosity to facilitate starting the engine. It does not get very cold in Texas, however during the winter if I do not store my washer indoors, starting is difficult with 30w.

For normal use I would use straight thirty weight. For colder use I would change to 10W-30.Thank you. I hope this is what you needed.
