I've used the mini specific millers oil in the past, absolutely no problem with it.
Only stopped using it as I changed to millers ctv mini oil

I've been using it for the last ten years and am happy with it.

Been using it the last 6 years in a hard worked MPI that does a LOT of mileage and found it good.

Not another oil thread :)

 

Try Valvoline VR1 20W50 after you use Millers and let me know if, like me, you perceive an improvement.

Is it synthetic? Just looking for a good oil.

Synthetic is a really bad idea on a Mini. VR1 is a very highly refined mineral oil. I couldn't believe the difference when I switched to it!

Oils for most modern cars don't need any of the special additives to protect the engine and gearbox with shared oil like a classic Mini does.

Oils for classic Minis needs to lubricate both engine and gearbox parts giving the necessary coating and protection.
