Motor oil for Honda lawn mowers

“I just purchased a new Honda lawn mower. It is a 6.5-horsepower, air-cooled, self-propelled, walk-behind model. Which, if any, Mobil 1™ synthetic oils would be best for this application? Honda recommends 10W-30 API SJ or later. I would prefer to use a synthetic as I do in my other cars. Thank you.”

I would use either Mobil 1™ 10W-30 or Mobil 1™ Extended Performance 10W-30. Either product will provide great protection for your lawn mower.
