Enfine Oils......

PostPost by: mark030358 » Tue May 03, 2005 11:22 pm

About to start the engine after a rebuild but I am having a problem getting my favourite 20W/50W oil, namley Duckahms (the green stuff). Apparently its no longer available and I have had a similar problem finding Castrol GTX.

So I was about to try Millers classic 20/50 oil. Anybody using it? I want to stay away from semi/full synthetic oils (far too slippert when running in)

I,ve got gallons of the stuff in the shed-but that's another story-it's freely available(and cheap) at Huddersfield and Newark Aytojumbles(if you're local)

Mark, as mrjxc09 says, I pick Duckhams up regularly at Newark, bought some only last Sunday from the same guy at Thoresby Hall Classic Car Show, also have bought it this year at the NEC Classic Car Show, I know that's no consolation if you're not reasonably local, but best to stick to what you know and love if you can.
It is readily available.
Also our local Bullseye Motorists Discount chain stock it ( but the Newark guy is a couple of quid cheaper.)
Do you have a Bullseye MDC near you ?
