    The crankcase would use standard engine oil (NOT 2 cycle oil to mix with gas)... A synthetic oil would probably be overkill... a 'natural' oil with Low viscosity (Cold weather performance) like 5w-30... see what's available and ask at the counter... most CAR Part suppliers Know their stuff (walmart clerks are less informed)

    It is a question for someone that deals with snow blowers for the best suggestion.

    google it! check YOUR manufacturer's website...plug in your make and model and you can read the manual online.. don't trust anything else!!

    Peter is correct. You need a light weight oil that's used in chain saws and other power tools. Your local hardware store can help you out.

    I agree with Peter. Regular 5W-30 motor oil is a standard. If its a 2 cycle engine oil needs to be mixed with the gas. Use 2 cycle engine oil. Amount is based on your model.
