Perfect. I just dumped a couple of gallons of Delo into my 40 last week 'cause they were out of the Rotella.

From a background in racing, I ran comps break-in adative after a build with radical lobe profiles and a Ford lifter where it is absolutely critical.......since my 2f rebuild I've ran rotella-t. I polished my journals to the low side of the tol. (ie. larger clearances). I'll e sure and let you guys know when using rotella-t fails me.

I looked for and could not find any Accel at wally world or at Carquest so I ended up buying another bottle of Rislone ZDDP additive.

Thread resurrection...

I run Brad Penn oil in my '88 911 for the higher zinc content. It's about 6.25/qt when you buy by the case.

I just bought a whole bunch of Ace Hardware private label at $2 a quart on sale, it is normally around $4.50 or so. I figure for that kind of discount, I can justify the $6 a bottle for the Rislone additive.

Default Now, with more zinc....

Thread resurrection again. The 10w-40 Accel oil bottle at Walmart has been revised again and now says 'Contains at least 1100ppm Zinc'. Still $2.67/quart.

The Evergreen Walmart doesn't even sell quarts any more, they've gone to the big jugs.
