I would use it my 4-cycle lawn mower. The synthetics have a reputation for being too thin and slippery for the splash type lubrication used in lawn mowers, and lawn care guys claim they have seen increased engine wear with it. I put an old cardboard can of Valvoline 10W30 in my 1988 Honda OHV lawn mower 2 years ago and it has worked fine since then. I change the oil in the mower about once every two years. I will probably use non-synthetic Pennzoil or Quaker State next time since I have run out of the old oil I had.
