Straight from Honda telephone call: "We do not recommend synthetic oil in our 160 CC engines."
Your statement from Honda says "Our engines"
That is the point I am trying to get across "synetics are not for all Honda Engines and a person should use what is listed in the operators manual"
Since PB blaster cleared up the stuck "decompression mechanism" and the oil was very black, What better proof for me telling the owner to use "What is stated in the manufactures handbook, in this case "30W or 10-30". He was using the "purpil named synethetic"
