Are you sure you're not looking for MIL-L-2104E?
If memory serves, that is the military's spec for motor oil.

I beleive harman is correct I do not see this spec. I believe some have published their product as meeting this spec while having a typo in the print.

Current spec is MIL-PRF-2104H.

If you are looking for gear oil specs, then Mil-L-2105E/F might apply.

I read through MIL-L-2104E and it appears any base oil can be used although re-refined is preferred. Is there a mil spec specific to re-refined base oil only? Thanks for all the help- you guys rock!

There is not a seperate mil spec that I am aware of. The requirement is that the finished product meet the required mil spec irreguardless of the source of the base oil.

http://www.aviation.dla.mil/userweb/dscrld/RR.htm

If I could manage to get the pdf right I would post it.

Do a search for " dla re-refined oil " and you will find the pdf brochure. For some reason it will not function if linked.

Be very careful buying oil using mil specs, I worked in oil sales for about 10 yrs. Ive seen fleets of city and state vechiles parked with blown engines due to purchasing oil spec to meet mil specs. Remember a mil spec is for wartime use. Just to get a truck from supply depot to front line with no considerstion except its oily and will keep the engine running until its hit with a bomb. Mil are mininum specs you can qualify
