Seeing is Believing and a Picture is worth a thousand words, and a picture of words is worth a thousand and how many words are in the picture words. If you use anything except Synthetic 5-40, 93 octane gas and Champion sparkplugs in your Vespa ET4 or LX 150, you will permanently damage it. It will become, the horror, the horror, an Aprilia! Same Leader Motor, interchangable engine parts, and they apparently didn't read the Vespa owner's manual or use Google before printing up these stickers, because they must be wrong.

I use 15-50 or 20-50 full synthetic in my bikes, and it's nice to know that someone at Piaggio doesn't think I'm destroying them after all.

Those regulations are for motorcycles, not mopeds.

Technically speaking, the Aprilia 150cc is not a moped. It is a Piaggio product with a 150cc Leader engine.

I am going out on a limb here and saying Znomit was joking.

I was under the impression znomit thought I had posted a photo of a sticker I found on the Tomos. I am often wrong, and never admit my mistake, and don't intend to start now.

Truly reassuring words from someone who advertizes himself as a repair specialist.

Sounds like, "sorry sir, your repair didn't work out well, it's fubar. You waited too long for me to fix it for you".

You must be new to the internet. Nobody jokes about oil viscosity and type. That's serious stuff.
