I believe that this is Castrol Syntech; their web site indicates that it is
appropriate for older engines but I did not find a disclosure of zinc and
phosphorus concentrations.

Given the fact that a small percentage of our cars leak a minute quantity of
oil, I would prefer less expensive mineral oil to more expensive synthetic

Charley, etal.

Castrol HAS NEW product slowly creeping into stores that DOES have the ZDDP
levels out motors need.  Just read the bottle;  says something like "...for
older/antigue vehicles".  Bottle does NOT (or so they
said to begin with) "look" different.  My Machine Shop has it.  You can
check this out on their site.
