It will be OK to put pretty much any engine oil in your JAP, as long as it has oil in it. Seems a bit expensive to me but if you like to treat your engine then go ahead.
You can get very good sae30 engine oils from your local lawn mower shop as well, probably a lot cheaper.

Brandon which oil is a big argument amongst engine men whether to use as you say Morris SAE30 or Tesco 20/50 or any cheap oil. The answer is it's up to you, no one can fault using a good oil but there again no one can fault a cheap oil for what we use our engines for and the length of time there run. I see your 15 well if I were in your shoes I'd put cheap oil in and save the rest of your money and put it towards your next engine. If you have a look around the forum there's a few posts on which oil to use read them and make your own decision.
Can I add it's good to have you on the forum we like to see young blood coming into stationary engines, you'll have to give us a bit of a write up about yourself, what/who got you interested, what engine/s you have what you'd like.


Engines are just like Pringles .... one is never enough.  Very Happy                                        I used to love tractors all I would ever think/talk about. Then one day out of the blue I went on to statinary engines, So you could say I'm an extractor fan.
