I just wanted to let everyone know that Pep Boys sells Castrol GTX Diesel oil that's 15W-40 and rated CI-4 for our flat tappet engines.
I bought a bunch of the stuff for future use. They had it in gallon jugs and 1 quart bottles.
The Rotella T that they stocked was CJ-4. Didn't have any of the CI-4 in stock.

Swepco 15W40 may solve all of the oil worries, with regard to the reduction in ZDDP.

Yeah, did you see the price? $142.80 for 24, thats $71.40 for 12 quarts or $5.95 a quart! [xx(]

Man at that price you sure can't afford to drive an oil burner!:(

I'll admit that its pricey, but I'll sleep better at night, knowing that the cam isn't grinding to a halt ...

I just picked up 3 gal of Delo (Chevron) CI-4 rated oil at Pep Boys so there is still plenty out there.

It's nice to know that Castroll is thinking of vintage car owners.
I've been a Castroll customer for years and I'm pleased that they have come out with a formulation for Classic Cars.
I guess that SOMEONE is listening.
