Russell,
The last oil change on the Jackaroo I put in Cruiser Oil and was impressed with the change - quieter and more hill climbing ability. Since Jackaroos use engine oil in the gear box, do you think Cruiser Oil in the box would provide the same result?

Russell,
I have used a range of oils, Shell Helix Super, Penzoil Synthetic Blend. I have never noticed any difference in the past. I've followed your previous comments and I've visited your web site. When I was at a 4WD Megastores I saw the Cruiser oil and bought some for the next change. More of an impulse buy. I'm in Brisbane, to answer that question.

Steven,
I'm trying to work out if the Dorothy question is trick question. Either way the answer is no.

Ha ha,

Just a light-hearted dig. Have you ever heard of the Dorothy Dixer? A favourable question that is asked expecting a set reply. Happens in Parliaments all the time. "I thank the honourable member from my own party for his/her question and just happen to have a prepared reply."!! Just the way you phrased it.

Of course I am not suggesting this about Russell. He has helped me out with some good answers on oil for the Prado in the past.

Cheers
Steven

Steven, I missed the Dorothy Dixer. I went and asked the kids who the pirate was on the Wiggles, thinking there was a Dorothy the Dinosaur connection. Excuse me I'm a bit s l o w.
Take care

Which oils would you recommend for the Patrol 3.0Di. I hear they give problems (Pistons, EGR Valve) if you don't use CF?

If you do your homework you will find the Mobil Synth S is a superior product in all aspects. While Synth S in an excellent product also check out the Caltex Delo 400. Synforce would never have a product that even comes within a smell of Caltex Delo 400. Why buy snake oil when you can buy a great product from Mobil or Caltex.

Information on snake oil is never useful to anybody
Where are the tests to SAE and DIN standards
Where are the lubrication engineers and scientists
Where are the insurance policies to cover you
Where are the bricks and mortar to protect you
Surely ethanol toluene kerosene adding to fuel is still ringing loud in your little ears
All this guy has is a loud sales mouth and no facts or knowledge
Any twit could spew off all this sales garbage for snake oil
What do you think snake oil salesman are all about

check our specs on cruiser oil on our web site and check 400, you will find that ours outspecs the other, pay particular attention to tbn, the higher the better in this case. compare also the viscosity index, both of these that other person obviously knows nothing about.

more than likely old oil collected from local service stations then centrifuged and a few new additives chucked in from a distance

Hi Russell,
I have a hilux '92 model 2.8D 3L engine with 190,000kms. I had it compression tested before I have a Denco turbo fitted 9before xmas) and all cylinders came up at at manufacturers spec's.
The question is what is the most appriopriate oil & grade of oil once I fit the turbo?
For the first 80,000kms I used Penrite, now that I'm married with kids I've been buying bulk no-name oil (20litres) from Oil World in Melbourne.
Will the turbo require a better quality oil like Crusier oil ?
Cheers Anthony

are your oils mainly designed for cruisers/patrols or can they be used for smaller TDs such as Discovery?
