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.
