Briggs 35 oil

Dumb question alert! ::)


Just servicing Kairos’ engine in advance of Loch Fyne Hover-fest and wondering if there is any change in thoughts on best oil spec to use in a Briggs 35? The servicing guide on this site suggests 5W30 fully synthetic oil - that still the case pls guys?

Thats brilliant Warby, thanks.
Adding further spice and dicussional branches to this riveting subject-
1 Synthetic better than "mineral"?
2 Is detergent good for engines or better washing dishes?
