I actually read that off of an internet site that was talking about oil. If everything is parrafin based and only synthetic is ash based then the only real question is in the additives........case in point here, zddp.

I'll keep reading up on it and see where it goes...........thanks, JD

I don't think synthetic oil is ash based. I cannot find any oil that is ash based. All I find is ash is a by-product of burning oil. LOL Where did you hear that part?

bobistheoilguy.com is a great place to learn up on oil.

Son of a weechie, I heard it somewhere and now I'm determined to track it down.

Maybe venturing into wasted territory here but I'll see where it goes. I think I've read all of Bob the oil guy's site. Lot's of others too. Ya know, sometimes there's just too much info to digest. Basically, I want oil with some zddp and something that doesn't cause sludge buildup in the engine. The site I was reading on said that parrafin is basically a wax and that is why it causes buildup within the engine.

Naturally I don't want to tear down this particular engine one day and find it's all sludged up from crappy oil. Actually, I believe if you change it regularly and run it at good and hot temps.........you won't have that problem. However, just exactly what is the best oil to run in a street driven mildly modified engine for long life and good reliability?????

I guess that's all I'm really after. And the thing about Jiffy-Lube and the others putting used oil back into your vehicle...............Man, that just ain't right. I'll do my own thanks.

Valvoline VR-1

I have an empty Valvoline VR-1 right here, and the label on the back says it has ashless anti wear additives and ZDDP.
Ashless means no ash.
