The engine oil drains into the bottom end of the engine and will be pumped into the external oil reservoir when the engine is started. The owner’s manual will guide you in that process. It recommends that you run the engine for about 5 minutes but you will have better success if you take the machine out for a short time and let it sit for just a minute or two after returning. Check the oil and low and behold there is oil on the dipstick. Do not overfill the external tank or you will have a mess in the air box.
When changing oil don't over fill. Put in 2 Quarts and leave it at that. Make sure to drain all three locations (oil container, engine lower end and oil filter)
