Thanks Oilman !

There you have it ! The very reasons why to stay away from the Snake oil venders and not get sucked in to the addatives being sold. Stay with a good quallity oil from the big oil companies and you will get quality every time and not wreck your car or produce health hazards at the same time. If your so concerned then change your oil more often but again with in reason cause you can waste money there too.

From reading what oilman have said. I would use Titan 10w-50 ester oil, if you push your car from time to time.

I would still go for a 5w-40. Okay, it's warmer in Italy, but not a massive amount and a good 5w-40 is fine up to 130C on average.

5w-40, 5w-40 oil, 5w40, 5w/40

Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Millers CFS, Motul 300V, Redline and Gulf Competition. The Motul 8100 X-Cess, Millers XFS, Fuchs Supersyn and Mobil Synt S are good, cheaper alternatives.

Cheers

Tim

Not much, the only difference is teh cold crank viscosity 5w and 10w. The 5w this more fluid at cold temps but both are OK for UK climate.

Not sure, did they give a reason? It is neither better nor worse. Just different,. Depends on what the car is being used for.

Cheers

Do you recommend a different oil for LPG RB engines?

No, they run a tiny bit warmer, but not a lot, so I'd go for the same oil

Yes they are very, very good. Expensive here in the UK as it has to be imported. Make sure you use the correct one for your application.

Cheers

Unless your car is heavily modified, the Redline 5w-40 would be the best choice, otherwise a 10w-50 if it's available to you.

Cheers

What happens if you make a 50/50 mix of 2 oils that are a 10/30 and a 5/30?
Would I have a 7.5/30?

ZDDPs are only reduced in API SM spec oils.

I would go for something a bit thicker and better quality than you are currently using.

5w-40 engine oil | 5w40 oil

Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Millers CFS, Motul 300V, Redline and Gulf Competition. Those all have high ZDDP levels.

Cheers

Tim
