One of the coolest cars Volvo ever made. You know it's been 2-3 years since Castrol reduced the zinc content in its GTX conventional oil. How would this P1800 do in 2.7 million miles with lower zinc levels?

have you checked the VOA of GTX conventional oil?

maybe they lower the zinc and substitute the lack of it by adding Molybdenum and Boron, correct me if i am wrong.

Over priced for what performance you get. JMO that there are better conventional oils on the market than GTX for the price.

Was Castrol GTX even around when that car was new?

Quote:

By 1960, the name of the motor oil had all but eclipsed that of the company’s larger-than-life founder, and so ‘CC Wakefield& Company’ became, simply, Castrol Ltd. Meanwhile, the company’s researchers delved ever deeper into the complexities of engine lubrication and a state-of-the-art research facility opened in Bracknell, England. Then in 1966, The Burmah Oil Company bought Castrol.


That's all it says on their site: https://www.castrol.com/en_us/united-states/about-us/history.html

In 1971 those cars were hard to find to buy. A friend of mine's father bought one for his graduation from college. He had to go to NY to get it. They were cool cars, not very fast but cool. We got his up to 100 one night.

Yup, but still shows the excellent engineering of Volvo at the time.
