Been on a few forums - general concensus is slick 50 has teflon in.Teflon hardens. When this hardened teflon breaks off, where does it go?

Nobody seems to know.

I dunno either but not taking the chance.

and I used to use it all the time

Yeah, don't do it. General consensus on here seems to be that additives are a bad idea. Also if you look at http://www.carbibles.com/engineoil_bible.html, this article explains a lot about oils, and also why additives may not be such a great idea (I think the additives bit is a link from this page). Anyway, it's worth a read.

 

Also search for threads on this forum by a guy called "Oilman" (real name: Simon). Like Retro620ti says, get a decent synthetic ester oil. Simon recommends (or at least used to recommend) Silkolene Pro-S 10w50 for the zed engine, but best to ask him direct since he knows what he's talking about and I don't. Opie Oils have got a link in the sponsored links section of the forum.

I use millers 5/40 fully snt, all year round, specially in winter because of quicker circilation needed to protect at cold temps and engine sounds very smooth.

Still recommend 10w-50 for the modded and tracked cars. 5w-40 or 10w-40 would be better for the stock road cars.

10w is fine for winter use, even in chilly Scotland.

 

I would still use the 10w-50 as the most suitable option.

PS. Nice to be back. Went away for a while to cool down after some heated discussons. It can be a thankless task at times :headvswal
