Hello and Welcome from Dr Mower lawn mower service expert.
Fuel and recommendations before the lawn mowing seasons to begin.
Use clean, fresh petrol.
Only purchase a 30 day supply of petrol. FRESH petrol minimizes gum deposits and also will ensure fuel volatility tailored for the season in which the engine will be operated.
The use of fuel additive, such as Briggs & Stratton part No: BS992380 100ml fuel fit, or equivalent, will minimize the formation of fuel gum deposit during storage.
Such an additive may be added to the fuel tank or storage container.

Briggs & Stratton engines are lubricated with a gear driven splash oil slinger, connecting rod dipper, an oil pump, or a combination of above.
During normal operation, small particles of dust, metal from the cylinder walls gradually contaminate the oil.
If the oil is not changed regularly, these foreign particles can cause increased firction and an abrasive action which shortens the life of the engine.
Fresh oil also assists in cooling.
Old oil gradually becomes thick and loses its cooling ability and lubricating qualities of your lawn mower engine this is why important to have a service annually.
Use a High quality detergent oil SAE 30
Air cooled engine run hotter than car engines. Use of multy-viscosity oils (5W-30, 10W-30, etc) in ambient temperatures above 40 F ( 4 C ) will result in high oil consumption.
If multy-viscosity oil is used, check oil level more frequently to prevent any possible engine damage due to lack of lubrication of your lawnmower.
Note: Use of syntehetic oil does not alter the required oil change intervals.
Check oil level
BE SURE OIL LEVEL IS PROPERLY MAINTAINED.
Always fill to dipstick FULL mark,
Change oil (Crankcase)
Change oil after first five hours of operation. (first use of new petrol Lawn mower)
