One man's opinions and speculation. I didn't see the science anywhere, but he did say to read the labels.

I just Purchased an old NH LS180 and did a full service on it for my piece of mind. Hr meter at 2572. Oil filter had 2454 penciled on it. Maybe that was when it needed to be changed, maybe that was when it was changed, who knows. Runs great. Blew my bucket seals after 2 hrs of work, not great. Just changed them and was adding Rotella t6 10w30 to it to top off and ran out of oil here at 10:30 at night. I have 20 gal of Penzoil Platinum Ultra 10w30 gasoline oil stored for my Truck and wife's car and was about to dump it in the reservoir. Glad I decided to come here and do a little digging to see if that was ok first. Nobody says it can or can't. So, I'm just going to put diesel oil in it like the manual says. The lack of comments on this particular "solution" speaks volumes. LOL
