Thread: I never thought I'd ask an OIL question...

  1. #1

    I never thought I'd ask an OIL question... an online forum, but here it is. Have any of you used Mobil 1 15W-50 full syn auto oil (red cap) in your Priller?. Mainly, I'm curious as to whether there was any clutch slippage. $4.50/qt full syn would be nice.

    Syn Oil

    The "rule of thumb" for the Falco is no pure synthetic oil. It usually leads to clutch slipping problems. I don't have first hand experience with this as I've always used a blend, but take it for what it is worth.

    Carbon Can Kat


    I use a semi-synth also. I just did an oil change and used Silkolene 20W50 semi-synth. I went with the heavier weight b/c of the length of the hot months here in the southeast.
