That's not best price, should be below rm80. Giant normally gives better promotion for Shell.
For me my personal favorite would be Royal Purple's HPS for FS oil. One of the smoothest oils i've ever used and pretty good FC + anti wear & detergent additives inside.
Amsoil also has pretty good oil, but somehow it doesn't get as good FC results as RP. The entry level ones also cant hold oil pressure + shed heat fast so I didn't like that . Their manual transmission oil is crap also, but ATF & Powerfoam pretty good. Been using it for a few years now.
But for a cheap daily FS I normally go to Bardahl + 1 can of B1 because of price.
Just a little extra for cleaning high-mileage/old neglected engines: I'm biased to Bardahl's engine flush because I managed to get a bit better ring seal from a friend's 1JZ when I serviced it awhile ago. Plus you can drive with it (not hard of course) in the engine oil. Marvel Mystery Oil is good stuff too, but that story is for another time...
Giant now promo Shell Ultra 5w40 at rm89/4ltr.
Quite often, seems a few rounds already. Now new packing some more.....
Yeah bought additional 3 bottles, so total got 20ltrs stock, enough for 4 oil changes.
If you're going for cheap oils on your everyday runner these cheap oils are ok to buy. But since this is "best of the best engine oils" thread, I'd put Penrite HPR series out there. Been playing with this brand for a while now and its resistance to heat is pretty incredible. Oil pressure doesn't budge much even with heat soak. And considering how much zinc it has it's good. But bad for catcons though.
Thanks for the heads up.
Btw, any1 have experience with ZIC top? Currently using it on my old forte 1.6L.
It's not a good nor bad oil. It's relatively cheap, korean and doesn't work well with performance cars.
At RM220+ for me its not cheap for daily Got it from autosaver cuz they free 2L of engine flush together. After this going back to helix ultra for sure.
You overpaid for the ZIC. I got mine sub 150.
Yea I think its overpriced too, paid for convenience no choice
150 is for the X7, X9 or this Top?
TBN value for the 5w30 is rather low so oil change interval might be shorter.
Erm.. can't remember. Used it once in my Myvi and didn't like it. It was the 5W30 fully synthetic one. Gold bottle I think.
Hmmmm... high zinc bad for environment, but still have SN rating?
SN can have high zinc provided its XW-40 and over.
How about MIZU engine oil which is quite famous in Lazada & Shopee. Tried once 10w-40 for saga BLM. Doing OK. no complain. The price is cheap.
big companies that make these oils like Penrite know their way around the ratings and stuff. Their racing range of oils is very nice too.
Since you're using it give feedback. I personally haven't tried this brand
Heard nowadays environmental also part of the rating, so have to be environment friendly.........lol
Environmental rating only applies to the resource conserving grades, normally 0W-16, 0W-20, 0W-30, 5W-30 , 10W-30.
it is possible for 10W30 and 5W30 to not be resource conserving though (thicker).
definately the better option oil if comparing similar priced oil...
