Briggs .6L SAE30 Oil 100005E
Size matters when it comes to the world of engines and oil. As an engine generates mechanical power and wastes heat energy at the same time, they need cooling to prevent overheating which leads to failure.
Small air-cooled engines used on outdoor power equipment run hotter than automotive engines, this is especially true on hot summer days.
Oil in small engines can reach up to +300°F degrees, 100 degrees hotter than most cars. Automotive oils are not designed for such conditions and will break down.
Small engines rely on outside air and specially formulated small engine oil to dissipate heat for cooling.
Another important difference are the high levels of zinc and detergent additives in small engine oils like Briggs & Stratton® that meet the unique demands of small engines:
Continual exposure to dusty, dirty outdoor environments in use
Extreme outdoor operating conditions, hot and cold temperatures
Generating more oil-damaging contaminants
Equipment sitting inactive and storage time
Slows the oxidation process/thickening of oil extending its life
Protects against engine parts excessive scuffing and wear
