What is the selling price? Do note that Lexus syn oil is $33 for 4L sold by most spare part shops.

Only the 5w-20 is fuel saving one,not the 5w-30.

Compare with other 5W30 oil the different will not be significant.

8% probably if you compare to w50 or w60 oil.
Most cars will achieve at most 1 to 2% savings going from 10w30 to 5w20. The reason why car manufacturers recommend thin oil is due to US CAFE restrictions.
You want savings, go for Mobil1 0w20 AFE. Used by hybrids.

Not sure about this oil spec and such but overall consensus is this Ultra seem pretty decent. Will try it in my next oil change so long as Terence price it properly, you know what i mean wink.gif
