Premium Mineral multigrade engine oil specially designed for classic engines built between 1950 and 1970. Lubricant for 4 stroke Gasoline or Diesel engines, naturally aspirated or turbocharged with carburettor or injection, SAE 20W-50 formula meets 1950-1970 standards (API SF/CC) and combines MOTUL’s current advanced technology, developed in motorsports, to deliver a complete performance package for your classic car.
Features and Benefits
STANDARDS: exceeds API SF / CC levels
MOTUL CLASSIC PERFORMANCE 20W-50 meets manufacturers’ standards from the past, while benefiting from today’s advanced MOTUL lubricants technology. It is formulated with a unique combination of High Zinc, Phosphorus (ZDDP content >1800 ppm) and Molybdenum additives to provide the best performance for classic cars equipped with large displacement, high performance engines used in hot rods, vintage car racing, etc. High ZDDP levels offer supreme protection of critical components like high-lift, flat-tappet cams, prone to wear because of the high friction developed in these parts. Molybdenum has a synergistic effect with ZDDP, lowering friction while increasing the lubricating film’s strength, engine efficiency and power.
MOTUL CLASSIC PERFORMANCE 20W-50 offers outstanding shear stability and high HTHS for increased wear protection at high temperatures, providing also excellent oil-consumption control. Multigrade engine oil suitable for year-round use (all-seasons protection) and good cold flow properties to prevent engine wear at start-ups, even after long periods of storage. Highly adhesive, its rust inhibitors and anticorrosion additives provide extra protection during wintering periods. Medium detergent level in order to be harmless to cork, paper, felt and fabric gaskets from that period.
Caution: This oil is rated API SF. It is not suitable for use in most gasoline-powered automotive engines built after 1988. Use in modern engines may not provide adequate protection against build-up of engine sludge, oxidation, or wear.
Drain intervals: drain at least once a year and adjust according to your own use. Can be mixed with synthetic or mineral oils.
