I will be glad to test both of them -if you would like to see how they compare.Hey Jim, I sending Maxima bean oil instead of Blendzall. Blendzall has ep additives Maxima doesn't. I thought it would be most interesting to see how just bean oil performs. If you like I can send some Blendzall for testing.
Not yetJim did you find any of that Torco TR 1 MPZ 10W40 I mentioned in an earlier thread?
It is US made
Any chance you could add this to your list
The prices of what I have tested go from mid range to high end.Hi Jim, sent you some embers from France to keep you keeping on. Would check for some european oils to send you. If customs let it go in.
Don't konw the US market, but are the tested oils among the most expensive on the market?
Thanks for the heads-up. I'm gonna quit trying to update my earlier post. Collating these results will need a spreadsheet, which I just might do anyway.Oils I have available or coming - yet to test.

Plus I will likely be retesting some of the better oils I have already done.
About the only thing cheaper than them would be non-branded oils or store brands.
Just be careful. I do like to use Mobil 1 oils in my cars.Was saying this because here in France we have a store brand selling in their own bottles, what is in fact Mobil 1 Syn, for a little more than half the price of the same oil in a Mobil 1 bottle. 28€ for 5 liters. Gives ~ one quart for 6,55$.
Here on Amazon we can have 5lt of Mobil 1 Syc SF 0W40 for 52,50€ which is around 61,50$ ~ 12,3$/qt
Have done 165'000 miles with it in a new car with no need to add some between two oil changes, so it's 7'500 miles. The oil always stayed at top level of the dipstick. After 155'000 miles I had to begin to add some.
We know those big stores are not oil makers, they just buy huge amounts and they have substantial discounts.
I would be concerned about it's ability to handle the temps in a Norton. This oil is designed for a more modern water cooled motor.SteveA: this oil ... https://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-807-mo...vanced-four-stroke-motorcycle-engine-oil.aspx
Is it suitable for normal road use, ie changes at 1.5k or 2k miles not just for one day at the races?
