Default G16 oil advice

Hi all, I'm new to this forum. I just bought my first gas cart. I have worked on several electric carts in the past. I picked up a 1997 G16.

My question is what type of oil are y'all are using? What weight? How much will it hold? I want to put synthetic in it. Any help would be great.

Thanks!

On a lifted cart, the dipstick may read low after putting in one qt. Mark the stick and that's the new full level. More than one qt can cause problems--smoking, oil in the air box etc...
