No it would only ever run on cheap oil.
I always use Morrisons oils they do a range for Vintage Engines and Steam

and as well as that steve, the asda's oil owing to its low price, is unlikely to contain the fancy detergent stuff for modern high performance engines, which means its rather good for our old engines.

ah not really ryan, consider your engine to be around 500cc (which it isnt but its a good guess) and it puts out 3hp or so, now imagine that engine as a 2.0 litre, 4 cylinder engine, thats 12hp, compared to the 120hp that about the minimum expected of a 2.0litre car engine now, and it gives you some idea of what conditions our oil puts up with compared to a car engine, that also incidentally runs 5-10times faster too.
