Motor Oil for a V Twin Riding Lawn Mower
Can I use Mobil 1™ 10W-30 in Briggs & Stratton V Twin riding mower. 24 HP. I have used Mobil 1 in all my motorcycles for years with 0 problems. Owner’s manual says use SL, SM, or SN or better.

Mobil 1™ 10W-30 synthetic oil is fully qualified against API SN and may be a fine choice for your mower. You should consult your owner’s manual in selecting the appropriate viscosity. Please note that Mobil 1 V-Twin 20W-50 motorcycle oil does not meet API SN and may not be appropriate for your engine.
