Do your motor oils contain zinc/phosphorus?

Yes. All Royal Purple® engine oils contain the zinc/phosphorus compound zinc dialkyl dithiophosphate (ZDDP), but the maximum amounts are restricted by the current API oil specifications. For stock, non-performance automotive street applications, API SN licensed oils are OK. For better wear protection, Royal Purple HPS and XPR lines of engine oils are formulated with a higher concentration of the zinc and phosphorus anti-wear additive and are suitable for ALL flat tappet and roller tappet camshaft valve trains.
