Our COMPLETE guide on choosing the right OIL for your MX-5

Ever gone to your parts store and stared at the shelving of all the different oils and wondered, which one should I get? Check out the video below for our full guide on the right oil for your model car.

A few tips:
If you really push your motor to the limits or you run a boosted application, then consider a thinker hot grade for your respective car. It may be tempting but don’t use the same oil for the transmission and the differential, they run different specifications.

My preferred oils for our track car:
Engine: Penrite 10Tenths 5W-50
Transmission: Penrite 75W-85 GL4
Differential Penrite Mineral 85W-140
