    Any perceived difference when u drove with shell vs amsoil? I also store shell in my storeroom for my less driven cars. Hence I can't make the difference. Those cars nv go to highway. Only around penang Island

    As you know my VR running Pennzoil HDEO 15w-40. Suppose to change every 6 months since very low mileage, Recently was busy so push to 8 months since mileage only 1k plus km, but after change can feel the smoothness of the engine......lol

    Difficult to say since you aren't comparing apples to apples (15W40 isnt synthetic)

    When I first use FS, I did keep OCI at 10k km, but my engine seems very dirty (meaning oil quite dark), thereafter I change them earlier also.
    Was suppose to use this HDEO to flush the engine, but my engine ran quieter, that is why I start using this oil instead.....lol

    My ass can't tell any difference. But I can tell you running 3 years with a mix of Amsoil SSO and German Castrol, my turbo was pristine condition. Cause took it out to fix a leak on the hoses, so checked the turbo again.

    penzoil longlife Gold? 15w40 mine also switched on this oil for recent work on the engine...

    seems like working exactly the same as my previous 20w50 of castrol CRB multi.... :biggrin:


    if my engine totally no leaks afterwards will opted for penrite HPR racing oil later....with no leaks...definately would waste a good oil.. :driver:
