If you are going to be using your generator at temperature extremes a synthetic oil and it's higher viscosity index will work in your favor. For a portable generator that might sit a while between usage the synthetic oil will also hold about twice the dissolved water that a mineral based oil will hold. Dissolved water is not nearly the problem as free or emulsified water is.
