          ZDDP levels in this oil are much less than Valvoline VR-1 and other oils like Brad Penn, Classic Car and others.

            Stated many times in earlier ZDDP threads...
            20W50 racing oil was exempted from the ZDDP removal laws.

                I resolved the E-XX issue by fueling up with clear, non-E fuel whenever possible and not storing my car with any E-XX fuel for any period. I try to drive my car several times every month, summer and winter and if I am going to let it sit for any length of time, I store it with pure 100LL av gas which does not deteriorate or corrode. My R2 Hawk and I really like the stuff. Yes, 100LL is expensive but a lot cheaper than fuel pumps, fuel lines and carburetor repairs and a little lead now and then is good for her diet. When I am driving long distances, I try to fill up with premium fuels when available. SO FAR I haven't had any fuel related issues that I'm aware of. I had my tank sending unit out this past winter and examined the inside of the tank, it looks very clean and shiny.

                  I use the stabil product, and the Lucas product for ethanol fuel both. I used the stabil in my 66 commander and my John Deere lawnmower. I used the Lucas product in my51 commander, and my weed eater. Both worked as advertised. The Lucas product was better in my opinion though as the 51 and the weed eater started right up this spring. The 66 and the JD were a bit slower starting and the old fuel had a strange smell as it was being burnt. I forgot to treat my old tractor, and as such have had the carb off twice trying ot make it run decent.....

                    While in Florida I would walk through a marina frequently just to see what was happening. It was noticed that there were often marine mechanics working on carburetors and fuel systems of two and four cycle engines. I asked the manager about the frequent servicing and he said it was because of ethanol. The heat and humidity and for some boats prolonged storage between seasons sets up owners for problems. The manager said that the mechanics love ethanol as it has provided a big boost in the need for their services.
