GT running in oil?
I've had a quick search of the forums, so I hope this hasn't been covered already. Anyway, I had my 3000Km service last week, and requested that the oil and filter be changed. The service guy said that FPV put Catrol Formula R in from new, so there was no special running in oil used and the oil should be OK until 15,000Kms.
I read the product spec sheet for the oil which stated that it should not be used to run engines in...at least not until 1000km of road use has lapsed. So now I'm a little confused, what does FPV put into the sump from new?? (By the way, I had the oil changed anyway)
