I still don't know what to make of this thread?

Would I go for HPR 15 or HPR 30 in my AU 302? I can't work out if its good to have thicker oil to lubricate better when cold(HPR 30) or thinner oil so it gets pumped through quicker when cold(HPR 15)??


Go HPR15, i just bought some and its good stuff. On the container it says it is 15-60 but is ideal for 15-40 engines and exceeds manufacturers specs for that visc.

i also use Nulon 15w-50 street/track and i still get 750km/tank and i thinks its a decent oil and its made in Australia. but the thing that worries me is in the small print at the bottom of the bottle "prolonged and repeated contact with used engine oils may cause skin cancer".


i'm a mechanic. oh no i'm gunna get skin cancer lol
