Less than a quart of SAE30. I don't know how many ounces exactly (no idea what you have).

I think all manufactuers recommend SAE 30, but I use 10w-30 in mine. My present mower is 23 years old and still going strong. I don't have a huge yard, but believe in changing the oil twice per season or before it gets black. Mine has a 3 1/2 HP B&S and uses a little over a pint.

Every mower I've ever had took in the neighborhood of 1/2 of a quart. I've always used 30 weight. When I lived in fla I changed the oil twice a year, here in tenn, I just change it once [smaller yard, shorter season] A new mower generally lasts me 15-20 yrs..... and I've always bought the cheaper ones.
