It’s Monday morning and the first job for the team is to discuss the work for the week ahead.

With a workshop full of projects, all in various stages, the whole team are busy working separately across the projects.

Asa has taken control of the work to be carried out on the Aston Martin AMV8.

One of the tasks is to change the oil. We’ll be using a specialist oil which comes highly recommended across a lot of the Aston Martin forums.

Penrite HPR 15W-60 is recommended for use in modern 4, 6 & 8+ cylinder multi-cam, multi-valve (Including VVT), naturally aspirated, supercharged and turbocharged engines. It is recommended for use in petrol, light duty diesel engines (Non DPF) and LPG/Dual fuel systems.

HPR 15 exceeds the latest European ACEA A3/B4 and API SN/CF requirements, as well as many manufacturers’ specifications. API SN grade oils have 40% less wear, 40% less sludge and 30% less piston deposits than the previous SM grade oils. It can be used where ACEA A3/B3 is recommended and can also be used where previous API specifications SM (2004-10), SL (2001-04) and SJ are recommended.

HPR 15 features the Penrite EXTRA TEN in the oil’s SAE rating. This technology helps protect your engine by using a normal start up viscosity with an oil that has a higher operating temperature viscosity. This improves engine oil film strength, lowering frictional heat whilst providing an extra layer of anti wear protection over standard SAE grade oils, reducing engine wear in all driving conditions.
