When do you decide to change -w30 to -w40?

My car is now 76k mileage, I run penang KL once/twice a month, averages 2000 km a month
depends on your car and engine. Modern engines were designed with lightweight oil in mind and there’s no need to switch. Tolerances in manufacturing is much better these days versus 20 years back.

For example the 4G** and EJ** are very old engine designs.

Anyone here used Lubrex before?

Heard that it's made from hot climate country (UAE) for hot climate country (Malaysia) lol

Brand is fairly new. Only noticed it this year and slowly more shops are taking up. Though the amount of shops offering it's still very low.

I am not interested in the lube.
I am more interested on the pic which is an ad for the oil by a tire shop somewhere in Jalan Putra.

Its curious to me as when i google the lube, all the images shown are not related to promo by any shop. Its puzzling as to how you acquire the image...unless u yourself own the image or get it from the source or its your....
I could be wrong.

You do realize you only have 1 post and the only post you shared is this meaning more than likely you're just doing advertising for the brand that no one has ever heard of amongst the sea of multiple oil brands out there that have not been tested or tried.....

A simple Google search of "Lubrex engine oil review" and you can vividly see the picture there lah

And no. Not rich enough to start own engine oil reselling business. Still a small kuli in a small IT company :)

Exact same post/question in LYN forum sometime ago which I commented that the name sounds more like a sex lube!
Didn't feel like it sounded like one until you said it lol

Been using Mobil lately, now tried it let's see how it goes. Since it came for a free engine flush (though it's not that much of useful)

There were plenty of cases of ultra new members suddenly posting this and that about promoting or asking about certain products and then somebody else who is also totally new saying that product is good..so you can see why us long timers feel very suspicious. That being said, most of us are not interested in such "new" brands, and quite suspicious of such brands too. Like I said, there is no need for us to try any of these new brands when we can get name brand oil from Giant , at the same or cheaper price than high end offerings from Lubrex, or MIZU, or MAZ Lub, or KIXX or Bio Ray etc... It is highly unlikely for such new brands to discover something new that the big oil companies did not.

No worries. Totally understood as I came from other forums as well. Previously created this account because of having the urge to turbocharged my Vios or swap a 4AGE BT, and thought of seeking some advice here. But then in the end didn't happen.

Anyway, I'll see how it goes with this Lubrex. If nothing significant then I'll just go back to Mobil or Shell. Cause they got those marketing gimmick like what nano crystal stuff like how MaxxOil marketed their oil previously.

Btw, anyone used Fosser?

Lubrex? Lubrax (Petrobras product) I know la. Maxxoil sounds like a sketchy snake oil product (I heard they actually are).
