Re: What type of Oil do you use ?
Penrite HPR10 (10w50) in my Boss260. While the handbook suggests 10w30, Penrite con******t recommended 10w50 for 10w-30 applications. Their website also recommends the 10w50 for cars where handbook specifies 10w-30. Just to confuse things though, their sites oil recommendation 'wizard' suggests HPR5 (5w40) for the Barra 220 and Boss260 engines and I quote "Ideal where this viscosity or a SAE 5W/10W-30 is recommended, also for new vehicles under warranty"
Why would they recommend one oil grade for "under warranty" engines and a different one for other cases?
