2015 Porsche 991 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Sat Oct 29, 2016 6:03 pm    Post subject: Which oil? Reply with quote

Hi All,

Have recently purchased a 1986 Carrera 3.2 Supersport with the 915 gearbox. Done a quick search on the forum, but haven't seen anything indicating which oil I should use?

A search of the web so far suggests 5W-40 and fully synthetic is fine?

Thanks!

Well with the clocks changing tonight you can spend your extra hour searching a much discussed subject online and sadly you'll probably come away with information overload. It's basically split into three groups....cheapo original mineral 'tractor' stuff, super expensive high tech nano type synthetic, or 10w40 semi. I've been using the latter (Mobil Super 2000 API SL).

Obviously someone from the other two groups will say my choice is wrong and I should go into a corner and hang my head in shame.
