The need for Classic Oils?
Oils for modern engines need to comply with the latest
API ratings and specific ACEA and OEM specifications
concerned with improving fuel efficiency, extending oil
drain intervals and exhaust treatment systems such as
diesel particle filters.
A classic car engine has the opposite characteristics
with cork/graphite/rope seals, low pressure gear driven
oil pumps, larger oil galleries with greater dependence
on “splash” and “cling” lubrication, lower revving with
larger machining tolerances. This type of engine design
demands a totally different lubricant. The new range of
Ravenol Classic Oils offers formulations that have been
specially blended to meet the requirements of older
Special anti-wear additives with the correct amount of zinc
(ZDDP) are added to ensure that metal to metal contact
and irreparable engine damage is prevented, especially
to camshafts and followers, which can wear out in only a
few thousand miles when using modern oils. The careful
selection of appropriate corrosion inhibitors, special
dispersant additives and the correct levels of detergency
protect against pitting, the build-up of gums, lacquers,
sludge, soot and metallic ash – the normal by-products of
