    Tractor Universal - it's way better than GTX, and costs about £1 per litre!

    always used decent turbo diesel oil that meets the specs as it has a higher temp range than most petrol eng oil probably similar to the tractor stuff jai

    In all petrol engines, a diesel engine oil will be better, simply because oils for diesels are tougher.

    The tractor universals are great, and at the price they can be changed often.

    The used engine oil goes straight into the FUEL tank of the nearest diesel.

    Charlsey do you not filter the carbon out or do you just change your fuel filter more regularly? Jai

    The carbon black is so fine it whistles straight through any normal fuel filter.

    It is like soft graphite.

    Once in the cylinders it burns off just like the oil.

    Great Fuel.

    This is a standard practice in USA.
