The Right Break-In Oil

We’re trusting our Mini’s engine to Millers Oil.
We started with Millers Oil’s specially formulated Classic Mini Oil.

We’ve been working with a British company called Millers Oils. Their North American distributor is in Knoxville, Tennessee. Founded in 1887 and celebrating more than 125 years in business, Millers Oils is no newcomer to the lubrication business.

They focus on motorsports in general and IndyCar among others, in this country. Millers Oils uses what they call Nanodrive, which uses nanotechnology, to make boutique oils in small batches for serious racers. Their oils come complete with optimized ZDDP content, which includes the zinc needed to keep old-style cams from scoring.

Millers Oils provided Classic Mini Oil, a niche product made specifically for the Mini engine, since it shares the oil with the gearbox. There’s even a racing version available.

It was an itsy bitsy, teeny-weeny rally-winning project Mini. Subscribe to Classic Motorsports and get them in your mailbox.
