Wynns -yes or no?

Post by Richard King » Wed Aug 06, 2014 16:30

Hi Ive just changed oil in my 1275 Moke (1990 unleaded engine) using Castrol 20/50.
Is Wynns (or similar) a good idea ?
I don't have any worries on gearbox or engine - is prevention better than cure?
Cheers
Richard

I just googled the stuff, and it seems (according to wynns)to be a miracle cure all.....reminds me a bit of the Wild West snake oil salesmen

Or am I becoming cynical?

I'd strongly suggest NO. Your gearbox won't like it and will break it down in short time, then the 'broken down' residuals won't do your engine any good. A good quality Mineral 20W50 is the go.

Hello Spider
Thanks for your reply.
Ive never had a lot of faith in these 'miracle' products but thought I would ask.
Oil replaced with Castrol 20/50 bought at IMM together with new filters etc.

Thank you
Richard

Should one use the 'multiple' grade oils?

YES!

I have a chart, but short on time right now, I'll post it up later.
