              Does Valvoline VR1 have the required levels of ZDDP? I've heard this is a good oil that delivers a higher oil pressure.

                    Expect some groans on this - there are loads of threads on this subject, including a couple of recent ones and it seems usual protocol for the repeat cycle to be 6 months or more. The recent ones seemed to elicit some good, industry-guided, information so worth a search. ZDDP isn't so much a pressure improver, it's function is in limiting wear camshaft lobes to cam buckets.

                      Not sure anymore. The European datasheet does not quote ZDDP levels or even mention ZDDP at all and direct questioning of Valvoline Europe did not elicit a definitive answer. As I have said on here before the formulation VR1 now sold in Europe has changed as evidenced by the Product Information Sheets published by Valvoline and is different from that sold a few years back and also different from that currently on sale in the USA. The USA version does have ZDDP at the levels thought to be required for flat tappet engines.

                      As Jonno says do a search for recent threads, I think it was something like "what oil do you use" - there was one which discussed ZDDP at length and also gave alternatives to VR1 - some quite a lot cheaper! (duck and run for cover)

                            But not unfortunately with enough Zinc in it to preserve our sort of engines, review the other threads under "What oil do you use" I'm still traumatised by it

                              The data sheet states ZDDP (Zinc) level optimised to protect classic engines. Sounds good to me. After all, oil companies donít tell porkies............
