Hi all,

Just wondering what oil people are using in there v8's . I always used to use Castrol edge sport 10-60 but thats not available anymore only the Castrol Edge supercar titanium.

After looking in the manual it recommends Api SG or SH. modern oils seem to be SN/CF. 

Any problems using these??

Cheers

Andy

How is the Castrol Edge 10/60 Supercar Titanium different to the previous 10/60? I have just put 10/60 Supercar Titanium in my K series 1.8 in the 340R, as Castrol Edge is (or was) recommended by Lotus for that engine. I have to say, I did not think twice so would be interested to know if it is different. I have owned the 340R from new (year 2000) and did use Mobil 1, then Lotus dealer put in Castrol Edge and I stuck with that. Last year, the dealer used Valvoline SynPower (not sure what grade) so I changed this year back to Castrol Edge, without realising there may have been a change.

I use Valvoline Racing 20/50 in my 900 series engine and tend to follow manufacture specs.

A Snickers is still a Marathon and Cif is still Jif.
