On my rebuilt 1275 SPI I'm using the Minispares own 20w50. Claimed to be good, and I'm sure minispares wouldn't put their name on a poor product. Price is right too!

 

Seems good to me so far, regular changes are key imo

I've used castrol 20/50 classic and millers 20/50 for transmission in sump applications in both mineral and semi synthetic versions, no complaints with any of them.

I did do a search and found no thread where people could state what mini they're driving and what oil they're using.

Millers 2050 or Valvoline 2050. Loads of times mentioned with a search, using Google and theminiforum helps :)

Here in the States, I run Valvoline VR1 20/50 in my 1310. For years people went back and forth on whether is had added ZDDP but Valvoline finally came out with all the info and placed it right on the bottle.
