Which oil to use?...

I have a 10hp. Tecumseh engine on my snowblower and I'm wondering what's the correct oil viscosity to use in it? --> I'm guessing 5W-30 but I just want to make sure Right or wrong?

Thanks,
Claude.

Ok 5W-30, I got it but is it important that the oil be synthetic?

@too (Claude),

Yes, oil is something you don't want to skimp on, as it is the life blood of any machine. All my equipment engines, summer and winter, new and old, get it. A great range, covering a wide spectrum of operating range easy starting and the best protection.
