Valvoline Durablend 10w40 and the repco filter. Since it's still summer in Austraila and the Durablend sounds interesting.

Sell it all and buy yourself proper oil and filters.

0w16 and a Fram Ultra!


It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that ain't so.

Those two do match nicely, I always intended to use them as a pair. But I have extra VO6 filters for other combo's.

A bit conservative there ? Our local Repco has some Penrite 0W-50 that has been on sale so long the label has faded. The Edge 5w-30 is indestructable, and you can't beat a Ryco filter.


1987 BMW R65 - Aegis SAE30
2005 Nissan Expert - Gulf Western 10W-40
1996 Volvo T5 - Penrite HPR15 - 15W-60. Ryco syntec filter.

Hmmmm....the Fram Ultra sounds fine, just not sold here. But taking oil advice from a man that thinks Marmite tastes better than Vegemite ..... that's never going to happen.
