Subsequently, one may also ask, can I use SAE 30 in my snowblower?
You are going to operate your snowblower in cold weather so using SAE 30 weight oil is a good choice because it contains a high resistance to flow due to its greater viscosity, or thickness.
Likewise, what kind of oil does a Briggs and Stratton snowblower use? From the Manufacturer. Genuine Briggs & Stratton 32 oz. bottle of high quality SAE 5W-30 Engine oil that is specially formulated and approved for winter use in all air-cooled 4-cycle engines.
Keeping this in consideration, can you use car oil in snowblower?
It is the same (subject to below) as car oil, in that it doesn't use oil specifically for small engines. It's more that it is made for specific applications and has appropriate specs. If you use terms like "small engine" oil, some might interpret that a 2 cycle oil, which is mixed with the fuel in a 2 cycle engine.
Should I use synthetic oil in my snowblower?
So, while synthetic will do better in temperature extremes, (extremes not seen in a properly running snow blower) it will get dirty at the same rate as regular oil. Therefore we will need to replace it at the same intervals as regular oil, but at a greater cost.
