So due to some difficulties on the road a long while back I bought some modern Castrol Gtx and put it in the 5...

Forgot about it for a couple of years and and got a few wry looks regards the lack of Zinc and stuff.

Well just putting some Castrol Classic in now but as I started I thought I would do some research.


Take a look here a very nicely done table of research and it seems to be saying that Zinc and stuff is no big deal after all.

Modern Castrol GTx 20/50 comes out really well.........


Maybe we should stop worrying about zinc and start looking at the research. 

The guy actually states that the Zinc thing is a popular myth.....
