I have owned 2 cars in my lifetime, and they are both really old, yet I have never ran engine flush in any of them.
Change oil on time no need flush loh. Can also flush with single grade lighter oil or HDEO.......

Deng ask here also kena say I promote brand

Never heard of thats why ask what. If I can find some previous reviews also won't be posting here ady lah
Dey... can't blame us for being suspicious la. Hahaha.. your first was "Anyone tried Lubrex" mah... Next time start off with "I want to turbo charge my Vios" hahahahah

Incidentally, there a tonnes of oils out there that claim the world but most are not even certified in API and/or TUV certified which makes them suspect. Like how Torco for a time wasn't API certified but they seem to be now which is a good thing. The reason why this is important is TUV and API do random audits to ensure what the claims are from the oil is true or false.

Also if you really want to try oil claims it's quite easy. So far there's only a small handful of brands that I properly trust with their claims, other brands are just average everyday car runners which is only good for their price

Only a small group of people like you is crazy to use HDEO in your cars regularly....

Besides, if you use good enough oil with good detergents, you never need to flush.

I flush once a while when I remember, like maybe once every 20k or 30k km. I use flushing agents which has lubricating properties. So far I have only used 2 brands, Gold Eagle which is regularly sold at ACE Hardware, and Chemlube which I bought once at Kegani Racing. I don't use those cheaper ones like STP or those inside a tin can coz I cannot see how they look like (coz most is like kerosene with no lubrication).

Hmm with such price might as well get more trusted big oil brands like Shell which can easily buy at Giant for under rm100.
Just wanted to try out only. Since it comes along with labour, oil filter and engine flush. If nothing significantly better than I'll switch back to Mobil/Shell

But so far FC is better than Mobil. I could hit about 15km/l, previously only 12-13. Could it be because I've flushed the engine?

Been awhile since the last I've used Shell. I'll get that on the next service.

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

I kinda liked their products. It did give me better mileage. But seems like since last year tutup ady

So far the worst I've used I think is Fosser? Very low mileage and felt like the car is being draggy.

Was the Mobil of the exact same viscosity? I doubt just engine oil can give such significant difference in FC. I have owned various cars using many reputable oils for over 30 years and yet I never find conclusive evidence that engine oil can offer significant FC difference.

Another thing is I would never ever try whatever unknown oils on my cars even if I am given for free! It's because oils are chemicals where the damage can only be known when it's already too late. So I'd only use oils from well known reputable brands.

Better FC because they cheat on the actual viscosity...
