The new G-Oil

As my new GC is almost to 3k for its first oil change, I was looking though the boards for more info on oils and what people's experience was with each (A LOT OF INFO). One thing that I have noticed is that there are a lot of opinions out there. But What I am asking more information on is this new g-oil that I have seen. I saw that it was the "official" oil of the American Le Mans Series at the last race her in GA. Has anyone had any experience with this oil yet? If so what was your thoughts on it?

Unless you are greatly concerned about the biodegradability of the oil I would not consider it. Just recycle the used petrol oil if it's a concern.

I would by no means call me "green." Like you said I have the 3.8 = polluting machine. It is advertised as a full synthetic, which is what I want. I had just seen that it was used in some of the cars that just raced for almost 10 hours straight. The question was about the quality of the oil, not if it was green or not.

How much does it cost? Good quality oil does not have to be expensive or hard to get.

Personally, I would rather go with either Mobil-1 or Castrol. I'm not a big fan of choosing motor oils that aren't even sold at autoparts stores. Even if they were used in a race.

Honestly your best bet would be to go to BITOG forums and see what people are saying about it there, they have a ton of knowledge about all oils over there.

I agree with what you are saying, but some of the best brands of motor oil are not even sold in "autoparts" stores. Unless itís a performance auto supply store

Yeah at first it was going to be Amsoil or Mobil-1, but I then remember this form the race.

Thanks for the heads up on the website; I had not heard of it before.

So by the sound of it no one has used this oil yet in there GC or another car for that matter.

I searched over at BITOG and didn't get any returns. I don't know about using a new type of oil right away after it first comes out. I can remember when the came out with graphite oil back in the day. What a mess that stuff was.

I was too busy at the time to do the search so I just provided the BITOG link, but thanks for finding and sharing that Goil-BITOG that link. Like posted above, I could care less about green hippy mumbo jumbo, but if it is better performing, I am all about it. Them guys on BITOG sound like they all have masters degrees in chemistry lol. I think I will stick with GC untill their is more UOA's out showing this stuff is any good.

I could also care less about green hippy mumbo jumbo, that just a selling point.

yet more BITOG posts that I have found:

Had to try the G-Oil - Bob Is The Oil Guy

GET G Oil (Street) 5w30 SM VOA - Bob Is The Oil Guy

G.E.T. G 5w30, 10,053 miles, 96 Volvo 850 Turbo - Bob Is The Oil Guy



I am not to sure what the report show (ME major not Chemistry PhD), any input would help.

Meh, I would use it in an econobox if I had one, it doesn't look that bad, but I wouldn't use it on my GC as I don't like to see how low the CsT has sheared to, that that is just IMO. I also would like to see a TAN reading on it before I would run it 10k miles continued to use it.

As far as what the UOA's show, just search around BITOG site, and the forum and you can learn quite a bit and how to enterpret them, it isn't that hard for a basic understanding, but I wouldn't expect to know as much as some of those guys unless you do some hardcore research.

i'll try it next time i change and let you know. i've got fresh Castrol Edge 5w30 in right now so it's gonna be a while. but this has peaked my interest.

as far as suggestions, unless you're racing regularly, 5w20 blend or synthetic will be fine. for economy go with Q or pennzoil. for performance M1, Syntec, or Penz Plat. for racing Penz Ultimate or Castrol Edge 5w30.

IMO Castrol is making some of the highest performance high volume fluids right now. independent testing has backed up Castrols syntec and edge claims, and SRF fluid is the new benchmark. then again a $60 bottle of brake fluid better be good...

3.8 track to FRS. yeah i drive the slow car.
