Blended in the UK to Fuzz’s own formulation, its high-zinc content (1300 parts per million) makes it ideal for engines with heavily-loaded rubbing surfaces, eg cam lobes and tappets.  Made from carefully chosen base oils, Heritage stays in grade well at high temperatures – ensuring good oil pressure even under extreme usage, including racing!

Highly effective detergent additives ensure minimal levels of unwanted deposits on pistons, spark plugs and cylinder heads.

The formulation of this product is comparable to other brands costing many times more, as can be seen in the table below.

Classic Oils’ own-label Hot Hatch oil is a semi-synthetic 10W-40 engine oil meeting the ACEA and API specifications required by many high performance Hot Hatches from the 1980’s and 90’s.

Blended in the UK to our own formulation of top quality mineral and synthetic base stocks, we have produced a high quality engine oil with outstanding properties at a sensible price.  Its naturally higher lubricity offers lower internal friction which reduces engine wear and improves fuel economy.

It provides excellent stay-in-grade performance for a wide range of later classic engines and boasts a ZDDP content of 1300ppm for reduced wear.


  • Suitable for a wide range of vehicles
  • Excellent high and low temperature stability
  • Improved oil consumption and emissions
  • Reduced wear of engine components

Classic Oils Beetlejuice HD30 monograde has been specially blended for the demands of the classic Beetle and other vehicles requiring a heavy duty SAE 30 engine oil.

Formulated from high quality base oils and a carefully chosen additive package, the dual demands of cooling and lubrication are handled easily, ensuring your Beetle enjoys a long life and reliable running.

‘Heavy Duty’/’HD’ was a standard used before API specifications were introduced and was one of the very first standards to require an anti-oxidant and detergent content; this contrasted to the additive-free and detergent-free oils that were also commonly used at the time, but is a very small treat rate compared to todays’ modern engine oils.
