Oh, it will destroy the engine!!!!!!!!!!
my Briggs 'n Straton V-Twin Husqvarna 26hp engine had 550 hours on it last spring.
I had been keeping 30w non-detergent oil for it on the shelf.
ran out of the 30w, and said "the heck with it", drained the oil, filter.
and filled it up with a jug of Mobile-1 10w40
funny thing that, the Briggs had been using about a half cup of oil with every mowing, about 5 hours....
It used about a cup full of the Synthetic, and then it just simply stopped using oil.
it has almost 600 hours on it now, and I have just today, added a cup of oil to it.
that's over 40 hours of mowing grass that is almost a foot high, and no oil consumed to speak of.
