Does anyone know what Gargoyle Mobiloil HH was used for and what year?
Does anyone have the Gargoyle Mobiloil Chart that shows year and application?

Thanks
TONY

Tony, I have never heard of the "HH" before. Are you sure it is not a "BB" that is somewhat damaged?

I have a chart from around 1947 and will look when I get home

Would be great if you could post a picture:-)

After looking at some pictures of old mobil cans and the types of oil I am guessing "HH" may have stood for "Heavy Heavy". That is just a guess- I did not find a can or any other info on the HH.

"HH"" is EXTRA HEAVY SAE 60 weight oil. Taken from a quart can from 1934.
