[Mgs] Oil Additive

I figure that oil companies have put together a 
package where all the detergents and other 
components play nicely together.  Since oil is 
available that is appropriate for old cars with 
enough ZDDP, I'll let the company be responsible 
for the whole package and not mess around with 
it.  When Castrol made their Syntec 20W50 "for 
classic cars" I used that.  When they 
discontinued that, I switched to the Mobil 1 
15W50.  It is easy to find at a good price at 
Walmart.  The Valvoline is a fine choice as well.
