Penrite Engine Oils
Modern lubricants do not necessarily suit older vehicles, the oils are oftebn too thin, and the additive packages suit today's advanced engineering and materials, not those used in the design and manufacture of your classic. Penrite oils are blended from high quality base stocks, combined with additives selected to give the best performance and reduced oil consumption whilst giving better oil pressure, increased engine protection and reducing the build up of sludge deposits. Penrite's philosophy of meeting and exceeding original requirements extends across their range of lubricants. Other lubricants and sizes from the Penrite range are available on our website.
