Additional Product Information
Classic Triumph is a SAE 20W-60 engine oil and is suitable for both Standard and Triumph passenger & sports cars, such as TR Series, Spitfire, Herald, GT6 & 2000 saloon ranges from 1953 to 1982 that originally specified a SAE 30 monograde engine oil or a lower specification multigrade oil such as 20W-40 or 20W-50. It is ideal in vehicles operating in cooler ambient temperatures. It can also be used in other engines that require this grade of oil as well as in motorcycles.
Classic Triumph contains a special additive pack that has been specifically selected for the vehicles of this era and is compatible with the original grades that were specified. This oil exceeds the specification requirements of the original oil during this period hence offering a greater level of engine protection compared to original oils.
Classic Triumph features a standard multigrade cold temperature SAE viscosity grade with an increased operating temperature range that provides and added layer of protection for the engine especially under increased load and temperature conditions. Multigrade oils provide better start up protection and better protection at operating temperature than monograde oils and they do not need to be changed in winter and summer as they used to do.
Classic Triumph is API SG/CD grade oil and contains HIGH ZINC levels for added anti-wear protection for older engines.
Classic Triumph contains a "Tacky Additive" so that when vehicles are laid up, the engine oil doesn't run off the internal surfaces. This, combined with an increased level of rust inhibitor, provides protection against corrosion and deterioration when the engine is not used or in storage.
NOTE: when changing oil, Penrite recommend using Penrite Engine Flush, a fast acting, solvent free, engine cleaning formulation that removes engine deposits, sludge and contaminants with the oil service drain. It contains added zinc for engine wear protection and its fast acting formulation works in 10 minutes.
