shows 410psi on each cylinder (I've rarely seen an engine showing exactly
the same psi on each!)  Bentley suggests this is the lower limit.  Also seen
other list-members mention compressions around 500psi.  The motor starts
well, doesn't smoke, and uses only 0.5l oil every 4mos/5Kkm.  I use Rotella
T 15w40 dino in the warm months and 5w40 synth (either Rotella T or Delvac
or LubriMoly) in the colder ones.

And if it ain't broke, don't fix it!
