I wouldn't use it in the engine. If your car has a manual transmission and it shifts hard when it gets cold out, you could use it in the transmission. But mostly, I'd use 30W oil in my lawnmower.

I wouldn't chance it. It probably would be fine but just go out and get the right oil so you dont mess anything up.

i wouldnt put it in your tranny either.. ever. The manual trans has synchros (like they all do) that will benefit from the correct lubricity oil since they rely on the correct amount of friction to work properly and last... maybe the 30hd would be the right lubricity by chance, but i highly doubt it.

Sometimes the only way to make sure anything right is to go out and purchase your own parts and shop materials (i.e. oil, diff fluid, grease...etc.)
