What Oil Do You Use In Your Classic Mini?

Select from the choice above and comment on any difference in Oil Pressure Hot/Cold on a previous brand.

If you don't use 20W50 list what your using and why.

Mines currently on Comma Classic 20W/50 in the Tin with the Mini on it, Running Oil Pressure Hot is 80psi.

Looks like my old Duckhams and is Green in Colour

Not mini but in my MGB GT which is essentially the same engine but bigger, Halfords classic showed a noticeable pressure drop after only 1000 miles. It was running 5-10psi under the pressure I get with Comma Sonic or GTX.

Unipart 20W/50. I have also used the torco additive that Keith Calver recommends for the MPI with the CAT, and I'll probably put some in at my next oil change.

I had real trouble last change trying to find comma classic so used the halfords stuff as i also read it's the same stuff.

I used to always run duckhams q classic but i can't find that anymore either.

~£40 for 5L of CTV is a tad pricy. Hows the standard millers stuff compare?
