shocked For what?

And in the USA?

Knew someone put Straight-50 in their big engine sports car before. Engine ran super smooth, and yes this is Summer.

Maybe this is why i like Thick oil?

Ferrari specs 10w60 in some of their cars, hence Pennzoil Ultra 10w60.

I used to run straight 70 wt oil in my old Harley.I don't know of any modern motor that specs that weight. It had alot of hang time when pouring it cold.,

I don't know if it is made anymore but Kendall Nitro 70 was the thickest I have ever seen. Designed for old Harley s and nitro burning drag cars. I believe it is now sold under the Brad Penn label.

IIRC, when I looked under the hood of my friend's M5, it had a sticker specing 10W60.
I guess you could always go to 90wt gear oil if you like it thick smile

90wt gear oil is about a 40-50wt motor oil.

Straight-70 weight is the thickest motor oil grade I've ever heard of.

Even though a 25W-70 or 40W-70 and a straight-70 are the same at operating temperature; a straight-70 would be thicker at lower temps, and therefore I think it wins as "The Thickest Motor Oil" you can get.....

For fun, I would LOVE to get my hands on some 25W-70 or 40W-70 and do a short run during the hottest part of the summer, just to see how the car would run. Penright does sell oils in Canada, and I think these two oils are offered....hmmm....

:P

Im tempted to put that 40W-70 in in July out here (or August!!!) When it is a nice consistent steamy humid 90 degrees and better.

Im only slightly scared at this?

One thing is for sure.. it makes 20W-50 - even the Valvoline stuff - look like GC. thumbsup

Now, here is another question.. will an old 10W-40 engine SURVIVE 10W-40? (Think old, old Monster V8 fro, a time of real engines that have big huge blocks and MASSIVE Displacement.. 400ci or better.)

I thought if you put Lucas in it (Straight 80-wt, looks like pancake syrup?) it would also be almost that thick.

Hmmmmmmmm..............
