* CAUTION: Air cooled engines run hotter than automotive
engines. The use of non-synthetic multi-viscosity oils
(5W-30, 10W-30, etc.) in temperatures above 40° F (4° C)
will result in higher than normal oil consumption. When using
a multi-viscosity oil, check oil level more frequently.
** CAUTION: SAE 30 oil, if used below 40° F (4° C), will result
in hard starting and possible engine bore damage due to
inadequate lubrication.
