Which of these two engine oils are better for a Ford Falcon AU 1999 Series 1 Forte?

The falcon has a factory fitted LPG converter - duel fuel (LPG/Petrol)

Note that both bottles say they can be used for LPG.. hence the question which is better?

cheers

The LPG oil was first brought out for BA single fuel LPG. The AU LPG should be the R1 3305L and not the R1 3405L. That is Ford's recommendation.

i might be stupid, but i still dont get it.

does that mean neither of the above two engine oils should be used my duel fuel car?

The LPG bottle says: R1 3405L

The Super bottle says R1 3005L

I'd be using the LPG oil. Simply as that is what the oil is designed for.


The Super bottle says

"recommended for Petrol, LPG and Diesels..."

so both can be used for LPG.

R1 3005L is ok to use yes. The R1 3405L is meant for BA-BF LPG and Turbos.

I am sorry if I made you feel silly, I didn't explain well enough.
