Hi guys, i know this is already an old thread, but would like to know if you guys know MOTUL Classic 20W50 oil. It seems to be made for cars from 50īs to 80īs, but i canīt find a thing regarding the ZDDP level.
Sofar also couldnīt find any additive with ZDDP.

Motul Classic Performance 20w50 High-Zinc Motor Oil, 1 Quart

This is a specially formulated oil for flat tappet engines such as Porsche 356. It's a mineral based multigrade, middle detergent level, and rated at 20w50. API spec is SF/CC. ZDDP level is above 1250 ppm to protect lifter and camshaft surfaces. Package is 1 quart.

Thanks Ray. The Motul sold here comes in a bit different package and doesnīt show anything regarding the high zinc contents. It is specially formulated for 50-80 cars, so most probably should be right. Just send a message to Motul Brazil to be sure its the right stuff. ZDDP additive i canīt find anywhere overhere.
