Kendall GT-1 High Performance Motor Oil, Nitro 70, is a high-quality engine oil specially formulated for use in nitromethane- and alcohol-fueled drag racing vehicles. It is not recommended for use in passenger cars or light trucks. GT-1 High Performance Motor Oil, Nitro 70, is formulated to provide excellent wear protection and resistance to viscosity and thermal breakdown at high temperatures. It has excellent oxidation resistance and a high level of detergency to help minimize deposit formation. Its high viscosity helps maintain a protective oil film in the presence of fuel dilution.
Motor oil is made from crude oil and is used to lubricate, clean, and cool engines. Types of motor oil include conventional, synthetic, diesel, bio-based, hybrid (blends of conventional and synthetic), and recycled oils. Motor oil varies in weight and viscosity, as well as additives that some manufacturers add to the oil during the refining process. A numerical code system created by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) grades motor oils according to viscosity--the higher the number between 0 and 60, the more viscous (thicker) the oil is. Most consumer motor oils are graded by two numbers, with the first number indicating cold weather (Winter or "W") performance.
This oil has a weight of SAE 70, meaning it has an SAE viscosity rating of 70 at normal operating temperature. Always check your vehicle's owner's manual to verify that this is the correct weight of motor oil for your vehicle.
This oil is a conventional motor oil, meaning it is refined from crude oil or petroleum products. Conventional motor oils may or may not have additives included after refining. Conventional motor oils are more versatile than synthetic or hybrid motor oils, because they are suitable for use with nearly all types of modern vehicle engines, from cars and trucks to motorcycles, ATVs, farm equipment, and more.
