Premium SAE 5W-30 4-Cycle Engine Oil Specifically Formulated for Snow Blower Engines.
Recommended Oil

For temperatures above 40 degrees Fahrenheit, use single grade SAE 30 weight oil. The engine oil capacity of the Tecumseh HSSK50 is 21 ounces.

You can use 10w30 instead of 5w30 oil since both meet the SAE standard for viscosity at operating temperatures. Generally, the viscosity difference between the two is neglectable. However, it`s important to note that a 10w30 oil will move slower than a 5w30 oil in cold environments.
Yes. Snow blowers, like cars, are 4-cycle engines, so they use the same type of motor oil. Make sure to use a motor oil weight with a low-temperature viscosity rating, such as 5W-30.
During the winter time a synthetic oil also provides a more even flow of the oil. Conventional motor oil contains wax, which can freeze or congeal at low temperatures. A synthetic oil is best since you will be using your snowblower exclusively in cold weather.
– When purchasing oil for seasonal maintenance, most small engines (such as those on push mowers) have total capacities of less than one quart (32 oz.) and most medium size engines (such as those found on residential snow throwers and riding mowers) have total capacities of less than two quarts (64 oz.).
One gallon of gasoline combined with 3.2 oz of two-cycle engine oil. Unsure of the age of your equipment? Use the 40:1 mixture. All of our handheld two-cycle units can operate on a 40:1 two-cycle oil mix ratio.
The 10W30 designation on engine oil means that the viscosity of the oil is rated at 10W when an engine is cold, and 30 when the engine is hot. This is different than an oil labelled 5W30, which has a thinner viscosity when the engine is cold at 5W.
We recommend the use of 84-90 octane unleaded gasoline with less than 10% alcohol content. IMPORTANT! Use of fuel that has more than 10% ethanol content, such as E15 (15% alcohol), is NOT recommended.
Add fuel stabilizer to the snow blower`s gas tank at the rate specified on the container, and then try to start the machine. Even if it doesn`t immediately start, keep cranking—by pulling the starter cord repeatedly—to help work fresh fuel and stabilizer through the carburetor.
