I had a chart once with the mugen/asso oil conversion but I can't find it at the moment. It was definitely not 60W I think it was more like 55W or a bit less. It would be best to just try a bit harder and get the mugen oil for a mugen car so you can compare setups etc.

It's more like 50wt. I believe the actual conversion is 48wt.

My friend told me that he heard it is like 47.8 from a viscosity test someone did. if you can't find it just mix 1/2 bottle of 45wt with 1/2 bottle of 50 wt and you should be pretty close

I was told by a vet at the track that Mugen 600 is more like Serpent 30W. I was also told that Serpent 40W is like Associated 80W.
