|Shell Oil W80 Plus introduces the anti-wear and anti-corrosion additives of AeroShell W100 Plus engine oil into a lighter, single-grade oil for use in colder climates. The anti-wear additive reduces wear on start-up by forming a microscopic layer on the engine's moving parts to prevent metal-to-metal contract when there is little oil present. Combined with a corrosion inhibitor, it is designed for pilots who fly either in cooler weather or less frequently.|
Great service as always. What I found interesting was that it was cheaper to order by the quart then by the case. But if you order a case worth they will send it to you in the case.
Lycoming recommends SAE 40 between 30Â°F. to 90Â°F. They do not recommend SAE 50 until Above 60Â°F. Continental skips recommending SAE 40, listing conditions to use SAE 30 and warmer conditions to use SAE 50. Thats a shame. For decades Ive been using Aeroshell SAE 40 in my T210 from November to April. I have had the benefit of being based in mild central and southern California. SAE 40 works great, in my opinion, in the cooler months of the year.
Aircraft Spruce filled my order promptly and the oil and filter arrived in just a few days. Good service as usual
No, these oils are not designed to be mixed.
The Aeroshell Plus oils have an anti-wear additive in them.
