    Which Octane Gas for Kohler Command - Exmark

    I have a 2010 Exmark Next Lazer Z with a 23 HP Kohler Command engine. I was just curious which octane of gasoline you all recommend using. My dealer said he recommended 89 octane (which is what I've been running since new). The Kohler manual says - "Octane rating of 87 (R+M)/2 or higher"

    Stain/Sealant Recommendations for Deck

    I had a deck built about a month ago with Yella wood. I am about ready to put a sealant/light stain on it to protect it. Does anybody have any recommendations on which brand I should go with and where to buy? What about oil/latex based? I don't want a stain that will make the wood dark. I...

    Oil Leak - 2004 Lincoln LS V6

    I have a 2004 Lincoln LS with the 3.0L V6. It only has 23,000 miles on it so it wasn't driven much by the previous owner.

    Oil Recommendation for Kawasaki 21HP

    I have a 2008 Ferris 1500Z with a Kawasaki 21HP engine. I usually operate in temps ranging from the 50s to 90s so according to the manual, a 10w-30 would probably work well. I currently am running Valvoline Premium Blue 15w-40 but I also have some Schaeffer's 9000 5w-40 full synthetic that I...

    Oil Change Intervals Using Biodiesel

    I've been making my own biodiesel for about 3 1/2 years now and I was wondering if I should follow the manufactures specs on oil change intervals or if I should change the oil sooner. I currently have a 2007 Chevrolet 2500HD Duramax (LBZ), '01 VW Golf TDI, '02 VW Jetta TDI, and '03 VW Jetta TDI.

    Which Schaeffer's product for Ford F-350

    I recently started using Schaeffer's 15w-40 oil in my 2001 Ford F-350 Powerstroke diesel and I really like it a lot. What product would be recommended for the ATF and the differential? I am currently using Mobil 1 ATF in my automatic transmission and I've never changed the differential fluid.
