You can run the Rotella-T 5w-40 Synthetic. Works great on the Rhinos and has no clutch slippage. You can pick up a gallon for about $14 bucks at Wally World....

This is helpful too...

I like Rotella-T and the Purolator Pure One 14610 Filter...

Free advice on the internet is never worth the price you pay for it in the end...

I have used mobil1 full synthetic since my first oil change at 20 hrs. I have not noticed any slipage of any sort. The motor actually seems to run better and quieter now.

Also use Mobil 1 fully synthetic 10w-30
and have no wet clutch issues. Radiator cooling fan hardly ever comes on and also runs silky smooth. I'm on my fourth oil change.
