    What about zinc levels?

    Go with an oil with high zinc, or put in a zinc additive?

    It’s cheaper because it’s a mineral based oil, nothing wrong with that, but the more expensive ones tend to be semi synthetic, so your not comparing like for like.

    I do have the ZDDP specs. But I'm out of the country until the end of the month. I think it's 1500.

    Ok
    Phosphore ppm
    SE=1088, SF=1189, SG/CE=950,
    SG Sport=1105
    Zinc ppm
    SE=1199, SF=1310, SG/CE=1047,
    SG Sport=1217
    They also say the mix of all additive is important (what they have of course :) ) . Just adding ZDDP is not well balanced oil in the end.
