When I first heard the former Kendall Refinery was still up and running “THE GREEN OIL”, I immediately switched to Penn Grade 1®. I had used the old Kendall a few times in the past and once the blend changed, I used other brands and was always disappointed with the results. With the other various brands of oil, we would have to drain all the oil every 4 passes because the alcohol would breakdown the oil in my alcohol motor. When I began using the Penn Grade 1® Racing Oil 20W-50, I could go a few races without changing the oil. The alcohol did not have any effect on the oil. I was amazed and from that point on our team was sold forever!
The amount of alcohol blown-by into the engine was destroying the other motor oils. We were running 6.4 second quarter miles with a turbocharged motorcycle making 50 psi of boost. My motor was absolutely tested to the upper limits of its mechanical ability and the Penn Grade 1® racing oil never failed. Penn Grade 1® has never broken down for us under any circumstances.
I tell anyone and everyone at the track how well Penn Grade 1® works for us and I would not recommend another oil for a racing engine…period.
