okay, so I put in fresh oil in both my kohler K and perkins.
both have 5w40 rotella t6 for winter, but we didnt get any snow.

the kohler has less then 15 mins
the perkins has maybe 2 hours tops
I know I could run this oil to the end of march since temps are still low, maybe april.

will the t6 hurt the kohler? or should I be safe untill warmer weather comes.

I hate to toss this oil as its fresh, then again I rather not blow a engine.

Hey Sly

I run 0-30 in my k-321 and the kohler will tell you when it's to warm. Mine starts spitting it out the breather in the spring and that's when i change it.

If you want to put it in a clean container and use it next winter. :thumbsup:

Nice operator in your Avatar :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Either drop it now into clean containers and save it for next fall or run it until the daytime temps are exceeding 55 F and change to summer oil. No one likes to toss money away. That.... we all understand. Push comes to shove, you could use it in your oil can or to top up oil in a family vehicle between oil changes.
