Welcome to the forums. If you're talking about the '86 Fourtrax 250 utility model, it holds 2.2 quarts.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

I've got a 2012 Rancher AT. the manual lists 10w40 as the highest range on the oil. is it ok to use the rotella triple 15w40 in this quad? seems to be pretty difficult to find the 5w anywhere local. also, i'm in east TN so, temperate weather climate.

The Rotella 15W-40 is regular oil, the 5W-40 is the Rotella T6 synthetic which I highly recommend, it's at walmart and others about $23 for gallon jug - it's dark blue

I'm not a synthetic oil snob like some people at the same time synthetics are usually a "thinner" viscosity oil. Using a 15w-40 oil is a "thicker" oil and you may see upper engine wear using it versus 5W oils. The majority of engine wear occurs during start up. The thinner oils reach the top of the engine sooner therefore securing good lubrication quicker on start up even in temperate climates. Once they are warmed up then it's no longer an issue. I highly recommend the thinner regular oils (5W) or a synthetic. If for some reason you just have to use 15W-40 then I would recommend an oil heater prior to starting your bike. You can use a search engine and find easily....just type in atv oil heater.

well, i was weary of the 15w-40 already because it's above the recomended range in the manual anyway (stops at 10w-40), i'm not sure why i didn't look at the synthetic but it looks to be twice the price at walmart than the non synthetic. though they also show a 10w-30 in the rotela tripple online, but no price or store availability
