AMSOIL 0W-30 Series 2000 Synthetic Motor Oil


AMSOIL Formula 4-StrokeŽ 10W-30/SAE 30 Synthetic Small Engine Oil?

my snowthrower will be stored in a garage heated between 10-15°c, but outside will be expose to 0°c to -30°c

Whats the best synthetic oil to choose?

synthetic runs great  but I think it's really for the racing cars. It's 4X costly than regular oil. For regular and daily use machine , normal5W-30 is good enough. Make sure it has "SAE" printed on the bottle to ensure the quality. 
I mixed 2-cycle oil into my 4-cycle lawn mower, what should I do now....?

I did something stupid. I mixed some 2 cycle oil into the lawn mower, which runs on a 4-cycle engine.

the engine ran rough, and stopped. Then I poured out the gas, re-filled it with pain gasoline, now the engine runs alittle better, but still rough.

What should I do now?  Will the engine cleans itself up by burning off the 2-cycle oil inside?  Please help!!
