With all of the discussion about modern motor oils in the last year or so, I thought I'd mention this.
A couple of weeks ago there was an article in our local newspaper (Dayton Ohio) about a local fellow fed up with the lack of motor oils suitable for his old cars. So he and a partner found a refinery which would make the blend he wanted (0.125% zinc and phosphorous), and they started selling it. It is only sold in gallon jugs and costs $14.50. Since September, he's sold about 4000 gallons of it. Currently they make 15w40 and are talking about 20w50. Here is a link to the story that appeared in the paper
The contact info is think-zinc at motorheadoil.com or 937-254-2673 if anyone is interested. There is not a functional web site. I have not been by the shop to check it out, nor have I bought any for my cars yet - but I'm seriously considering it.
