Then WHY are you asking questions about what oil is the best oil to use? Define "No problem." I mean your oil filters bypass valve has been baling you out.
SAE 30 is lawn for equipment. It has no cold weather rating. Sure it has one but not specific to your engines clearances/warm up time.
Another pointless thread? Seriously?

PS you need to chuck the STP oil filter. I'm not trying to be a smart mouth but what an odd thread.

I run Royal Purple 10w-30 with a K & N filter. Change oil about every 5 to 6k.
