I want to change my oil on my 1966 moggie. I know i should use a 20/50 mineral oil but which brand ???? They range from Cheap supermarket own brands to overpriced Halfords. There must be a midway isnt there ??????
All suggestions welcome. Im working on a budget and im not convinced the more you pay the better you get , after all oil is oil isnt it ???
Was it the Carlube Daytona you meant? I see that on their website but not the Comma Motorway. Also, I've seen the Motorway elsewhere but didn't see a spec on it. I emailed Comma and they confirmed that it didn't have a spec. How much do these API specs matter?
it was the daytona ,its all pretty much the same really if you go for a supermarket or wilkinsons oil i would advise you to change it regually a speck oil can go longer between changes again the choice is up to you .
Many moons ago I ran a morris on comma oil and it was forever having a burnt valve problem on No4 cylinder. This only started when I switched to comma oil. After about 5 head off jobs ,switched back to Duckhans 20/50,no further problem.
Buy the best oil you can find not the cheapest.
I did use Comma 20w50 from boyes, but I tend to get the Wilko's 20w50 and have a couple of litre bottles of asda oil kicking around the garage fro any top ups. No problems from either.
