u cant possibly know which is which, those oil manufacturers even have their agents in plain cloth surveying the market, and they cudnt identify the original from the fake units. buy from dealers dat u trust, and buy at the stations, these two has always been my practice for years, especially after the kilang in rawang was busted. seeing dat in tv made me even more careful, because the packaging looked exactly the same as the original. be careful guys

fyi, magnetec is a good oil, it shud work as well as the others.

huakenny: the workshop boss and staffs have very good knowledge in cars, dont think they used the wrong grade of oil dude. Maybe...it could be a recycle one. yeah..agreed with u guys...we're gonna be extra careful chosing a right place buying our engine oil nowadays.

Been using magnatec for 4years+ no problem. Bought at tesco. I think is the packing, the ori botol sticker can be peel off, under it is more info n stuff.

Before changing the oil, do you check the oil level?

Maybe the oil is not sufficient for rotation flow?

My personal experience is by seeing the cap of the container...

When you open it, it must have the plastic breaking sound 'cleak'

Then you see the aluminium foil cover on the lid.

The ori ones are 100% sealed with sticker all round...

The non ori ones you will find the aluminium sticker slightly opened on the side.

They siphone out the ori oil with the small gap, and then mix it with cheaper oil..

Probably 80% imi and 20 ori ratio.

So whenever the aluminium sticker is not 100% sealed, reject that tong of oil....
