Small Engine Oil Type Recommendations: Use SAE 30 in warmer temperatures of 40Â° F and higher (5Â° C and higher) Use SAE 10W-30 for a varying temperature range of 0 to 100Â° F (-18 to 38Â° C), this grade of oil improves cold weather starting, but may increase oil consumption at 80Â° F(27Â° C) or higher.
