    Send a message to Peter Aawen, he's in Australia and he is very knowledgeable on Spyders.

    I just spoke with Don a technical adviser at Shell/Penzoil about Rotella T6 full synthetic and he said that it meets the API requirements listed in our Owners Guide. I have used it for years in the regular oil grades in my motorcycles but it is good to know that the T^ Synthetic is also usable in our machines. Now that the Valvoline seems to have gone up in price I and switching back to the Rotella T6 5-40.

    Oil Chemistry is complex.
    Even more so with synthetics.
    Mixing this and that in arbitrary proportions is fine for the highly skilled and incredibly gifted few.

    But for the rest of us, I doubt if it does anyone any good and can do much more harm than good..

    Default Well....

    If in doubt, after reading all the information available here on oils go with the manufacturers recommended brand and specs. you probably have a few brands we don't have here..

    I currently run 20w-50 in my 109 Blueknight as well as 400ml of Lucas Oil Stabilizer. I will probably be doing the same when I get my Spyder but I will be using 10w-40 Motul.
