Black Gold – Keep it Golden!
There are hundreds of different classic blend mineral oils on the market. It would be easy to get bogged down in why one is better than another, but that is best left to a conversation over a cup of tea at the workshop. Rest assured we will be able to advise you of exactly the ‘correct spec’ of oil for your particular vehicle. The most important thing when a car is used occasionally is keep it fresh!
Surely a Modern Oil Would Be Better?
Modern synthetic oils can run at a huge range of engine temperatures for tens of thousands of miles and see very little degradation, but this simply isn’t the case for classic oils. So why don’t we use modern oil?
The answer is that engine design has come a long way in the last 20 years. The oil is engineered for a very specific set of parameters, none of which you will find in your classic’s engine bay. Mostly they are too thin and would find any number of gaskets to leak out of!
