Also, how much oil does a Briggs and Stratton engine take?

When operating your 12.5 HP engine at temperatures above 40 degrees Fahrenheit, Briggs & Stratton calls for 48 fluid ounces (1.5 quarts) of SAE 30 weight detergent motor oil approved for four-cycle engine service levels SF-SJ or higher.

Likewise, how much oil does a 190cc Briggs and Stratton take? According to the manual, oil capacity is 20 oz though.

Similarly, it is asked, can I use 10w30 instead of SAE 30 in my lawn mower?

Yes; you can make use of it. But there are other factors you need to consider. These include temperature and the engine. Older engines can use the SAE30, while the 10W30 is for modern engines.

What if I put too much oil in my lawn mower?

Too much oil in the crankcase can damage the motor of the lawn mower. Too much oil can also cause the lawn mower to leak which can damage other parts of the lawn mower other than its motor. This is a classic case of when too much or too little can affect how an engine works.
