ulp or lrp?

do you use unleaded (pulp included) or lrp in your classic?
i know of a few people that use ulp but add the upper cylinder lube. i would find this a hassle so i converted my heads to accept ulp

Re: ulp or lrp?

I have to run 98 octane fuel, so I can't use L.R.P. I use BP ultimate. I have hardened valve seats and S/S valves. Have not had a problem.

Re: ulp or lrp?

I used to use PULP + Flashlube before my motor was rebuilt. Now I just use Mobil 8000 PULP as I have late model GT40P heads.
I don't think LRP is going to be available for much longer.

Re: ulp or lrp?

98 octane PULP only. No problems. Preferably BP Ultimate or Mobil Synergy 8000.

Re: ulp or lrp?

I only use 98 octane as well, I used the LRP once when it 1st came out but never again, the car ran like shit and played up every where, but I have the hardned valve seat's, etc as well as I built the motor to run on LPG, but I have no problem's with 98.

Re: ulp or lrp?

i use unleaded, or premium if its cheap (never really is) but i also run gas...

the new motor is getting 50/50 gas and petrol.... then ill slowly reduce it to 10/90 or somethign petrol/lpg...

my old xd 302 didnt run on lrp, didnt run on premium.... only std unleaded?!? with the others it lost power?

Re: ulp or lrp?

PULP is the way to go in almost any car, better running and better fuel milage.
Normal stuff is for the uninformed masses.
to tip a bit of fluid in before filling up is not a hassle at all once in a blue moon
