10w-30 will be OK.
I use synthetic oil in all my small engines, but it's not necessary.
Check your oil before each use and drain the gas out and run the carb dry of gasoline before any long term storage.
Getting the gas out of the engine when it's stored will save you having future problems.

Karcher Garden | Answered on Sep 13, 2017

did you forget to shut off the fuel before moving your pressure washer? It sounds like the engine is flooded. Honda GX engines are famous for flooding with the fuel valve left on when moving. Or did you store it in a tilted position? Take the spark plug back out and pull the pull rope a few times...you should see the gas that flooded ejected from the plug hole. Once you feel you got all the gas out, replace the plug. You may want to check your oil and make sure it isn't full of gas now also. If it is good, or you have changed your oil then start it up....It should not have the resistance anymore and should start just fine. Good luck
