That info is in the booklet entitled "Factory Approved Service Products". The booklet should be in the folder with the Operator's Manual. There is a chart which shows which oil to use for various ambient temperature ranges. Since all the weights are suitable past the upper limits of the temp ranges, I will just give the lower temps.
0W-30, 5W-30. 0W-40, 5W-30, and 5W-50 are suitable at temps lower than -13 F.
10W-30, 10W-40, 10W-50, and 10W-60 are suitable for temps above -4 F.
