Anyone running Motul Classic 20w50?


Recommended Posts

Having been in the oil business since 1979, I think it is doubtful that the Motul Classic is the same as Motul 3000 because motorcycle oil typically has no friction modifiers due to clutch packs in many motorcycles exposed to engine oil.

I am using Motul 300v Competition in my rebuilt engines https://www.motul.com/ch/de/products/300v-competition-15w50--2

For non rebuilt engines I use the Motul 20W50 but to be honest I'd use any other good 20W50 too but I get a good price on motul stuff.

The Porsche Classic branded 20W50 Oil is also very high on zinc and has won a comparison  of Motor Klassik or Markt in another test they weren't that good

Don't want to open a can of worms. Been using Valvoline 20W-50 VR1 and will be using it for awhile (because a bought a lot of it). Some questions that with our current formulations whether zinc is actually necessary anymore for any type cam.

The guy has spend an inordinate amount of time compiling information from a huge number of products, the results are mostly meaningless to readers.  It's more of a mine is bigger than yours type listing.

I do agree with the author that zddp is not the answer and can be too much of a good thing by adding more.

Out of curiosity, I went to the Motul Oil Selector (historic cars) and they recommended the "Classic Nineties" 10W/30 for my 1975 2002>

 

Motul recommendation

 

What you selected is for Modern Classic and Youngtimer vehicles from the late 1980’s and 1990’s

 

for our car is Classic Vehicles built between the 1950’s and 1970’s.
