Does anyone have suggestions of good brands of oil to put in my smalll mowers. Will the store brand work just fine?

I use Castrol GTX. Mostly because it's the only brand that the local shops carry in SAE30.

Does it have to be sae30 or are there other viable options?

Best to stick with the SAE30 for the smaller motors...

the lower grade oils do not have the additives to help air cooled engines, so your best bet is not to buy the cheapest stuff on the market. It also has to be non-detergent.
