Just change this engine oil today. Feels like Shell Ultra Helix at a fraction of the price..bought from carrefour at $29.89 4L pack. Surprisingly the oil feels smooth & the engine is quiet too!

Anyone using this oil too?

Upza Roger78. Are you still using the same brand? Seems like its out of stock at the giant supermarkets. My last oil change was with the very same brand Schnell Oil 5W40 . Its not bad. Since i drive up and down K.L often. the Oil temps has been stable and seems to work as good as the expensive oils in the market. plus for only abt 430 bucks for a fully syn oil its was worth my money :P

Any other users for this engine oil?. wats your reviews?.

So confirmed can use for 10K servicing?, sorry a bit worried as no local distributor listed ie no one can check if any thing goes wrong, but the price is good, anyway give it a try.

Anyway. Bought it at AMK ntuc. Thats the only place i found after going ard the supermarts :). My oil temps still remains constant. Bear in mind i drive to k.l abt 2 times a week thus i'm sold .Worth every single cent hahaha. Just that its wierd that a german fully synthetic oil at a cheap price...

biggrin.gif Yes Hulk. It seems like a good engine oil . i was amazed that it was stable in temps.. Just strange its not available at workshops?. Maybe Jamessc is right. Companies mark up real high prices for branding. Maybe NTUC import direct from germany who noes? and that why the price is low?.

As for me its worth the $30 dollars spend. if i worry just change every 2 months. Still some savings then a expensive engine oil change.

Not that im a cheapo but dont we all need to spent smart?. Haha save on engine oil for a year i should have enough for my toyo 888 heh !.

Yeah i agree Haziqko. Shell helix has a stiff feeling then the turtle oil but of coz u cant compare to mobil1 fully synthetic . I just settle for the turtle oil and have regular oil change. At least i know i can clear the carbon deposit or watever crap in the engine often at every turtle oil change. hahahaha.

Worth the price

Was using Shell Helix as well with KAH for my old Honda Jazz. Switched to this after I changed to a new workshop and the change is quite obvious. Smoother rev and the engine didn't strain that much.
