Within our Type 3 group, what engine oil is popular?

   1. Price per quart or
   2. 12-quart case?

Do any of you insist on using an engine oil which either has

   1. Zinc dialkyldithiophosphate (ZDDP) *IN* the oil or
   2. do you *add* approximately 4 oz. of ZDDP, when you change your oil?

I have periodically used Valvoline VR1 10W-30 Racing Oil and Amsoil Z-Rod
10W-30.  Both are quite expensive.

Are those oils worth the expense, given most of us drive a few hundred or a
few thousand miles a year?
