Hi all,
I have recently obtained 2x25l drums of the following:
http://www.morrislubricantsonline.co.uk/scripts...Diesel+Engine+Oil

Now, I know it says diesel engine oil, but its the same weight as I use in my V8, and I think meets all the same standards. If its ok to use I just inherited a lot of free oil changes!

Going into a Rover V8, so not that new... the design's only about 50 years old Laughing
I figured it would be fine and all the correct standards are on the drum - just thought it would be worth checking!

Its highly detergent like Rotella and if your engine is sludgy inside it will strip the junk out and plug the oil pick up strainer causing premature bottom end failure.

Change the oil frequently in the first few days and weeks following the fill to purge out the muck and debris it will strip off if the engine is sludgy. Don't forget the filter!

Cheers Dennis.
The engine was completely stripped and rebuilt by me a few years ago, but used very little since then so there should be no debris at all - I remember the toothbrush work... Evil or Very Mad

The oil is however full of water as it's been sat so long, so its already got a fresh load of the Morris oil.

After MOT and 75mile drive to Portsmouth, it's getting another change and a new filter (genuine).

500-1000 miles later another change to something a bit more special with a new filter.

I'm actually glad it's detergent as I'm really using it as flushing oil!

Thanks all.
