    How cheap is cheap?

    There's no Mizu registered with API, so their engine oil is shit.
    ~RM55? no way.... Shell Helix Ultra @ RM89 is already a miracle, given that Shell does their own base oil. Impossible Mizu can compete with Shell on the economies of scale to offer good product at cheap price.

    They actually registered with API and insured their product with lonpac. And yes their price is dirt cheap.

    I will stick with the GIANT stock shell. Not gonna risk my engine with a backyard brand like MIZU which sounds like a soup. This MIZU brand is API certified according to API website, but yeah I rather stick with Euro Shell.

    Ask yourself logically... possible? Sometimes when its too good to be true... I wouldn't risk it. But that's me.

    My logic said no but I just give a try. Done 8000km and nothing happened. Not said they are too good but hey I'm done another 2000km with fresh new mizu 10w-40.

    You will find that enthusiasts will not trust new or unheard of local brands. maybe 8000km, 20000km no problem, how about 50000km ? Why take the risk ? Thanks but no thanks. Stick with name brands and buy from Giant, at least we know its not fake oil.

    This also not a fake oil. They are locally blended. As of now I will take the risk. It should be no problem as long change 7k to 8k interval.

    Blended in somebody's house....I bet there are tons of other people saying their engines runs well on Maz Lub, Bio Ray, Jetron, MAXX oil and other fly by night outfits.

    not fair to claim that its a fake cause its their own brand, not a fake of another brand, so noone her eis calling it a fake. We just wont know of its origins.

    I will ask you this, you want to save 20-30 bucks on your oil when shell, a well known reliable oil is available for less than 90? Its your call man, but ill stick with whats proven.

    JTX also had(technically has) many positive reviews... till shit hit the fan that is.

    Oil is cheap, engine and labour is expensive. Best is to go with reliable oil with proven reliability. Most of the times engines failed or seized due to the quality of oil used and also change interval. After 8000 km nothing happened, that is normal because the damages might be collective, the accumulated damages might come with every change. The next thing you cannot save is OIL FILTER. That is the only thing that protects your engine from metal shavings and debris in case the MIZU oil is not lubricating enough and starts eating up your engine internals.

    Myself i used Addinol Fully Syn together with Bluechem oil conditioner which helps condition all the rubber seals in the engine. Up until now, engine is very rev happy and ready to go on my foot command. At low rev, it purrrss quietly and very minimal engine vibrations, from a 4 cyl engine somemore.
