GATOR Classic Oil 30 is recommended for use in veteran, classic and vintage cars, motorcycles, commercial vehicles and tractors, where engine design and tolerances prohibit the use of modern multigrade, high additive level oils. Modern dispersant additives keep combustion chamber contamination suspended in the lubricant, allowing full flow cartridge filters to remove it. Early oil filtration, usually in the form of a mesh gauze or strainer, is not efficient enough to remove this suspended material. Gator Classic Oils are low dispersant oils and allow the suspended matter to drop harmlessly into the sump. Gator Classic Oils also have enhanced anti-foam properties ensuring optimised performance in motorcycle and automotive classic gearbox designs. Gator Classic SAE 30 is an ideal choice for lightly loaded diesel engines used in canal boats, watercraft, older generators (e.g. Lister, Perkins), etc., where it can dramatically reduce the likelihood of bore glazing. Furthermore, the low level of detergent / dispersant makes Gator Classic SAE 30 an ideal choice for 1960s/70s VW air-cooled engines without full flow filters.
