Yo Doug, calm down!

Steve asked
Which oil is the preferred type for the Elan se & correct gearbox oil?

Maybe I'm going nuts but I thought he was asking for both gearbox and engine oil recommendations and FWIW Joe S isn't the only one with some involvement in the lubricants field :P

I think it just proves the point when you have the same car with different recommended oil grades from the manufacturer! Certainly oil technology has advanced since the late 1980s though. I just have talked to Joe in the past about oil so brought it up -- now you're going to tell me your Northern brethren are experts in oil :bananasex: or something like that :?

I never said he was; but it would be a fun Jeopardy game between you and him then :wink:

I live close to the North Sea and there's oil under that so I must be an expert :wink:
