    Oil Change Dillema

    Just bought a 2021 Hyundai Tuscon with the 2.4l GDI engine. It came with free 3 year scheduled maintenance, of which an oil change is scheduled for 7500 miles.

    Oil For Pressure Washer Pump

    Anyone know what type of oil goes in pressure washer pumps? Is it the same oil as air compressors, or something different? I came across a bottle of oil for those, but it doesn’t specify what is special about it VS any other oil.

    Kawa FR600V Oil

    Manual states 10w-40 for my climate. Would using a 5w-40 be better? What about a 15w-40? I'd rather stick with synthetic. Engine is brand new, on a snapper ZT rider. (360Z).
