Motul? But maybe a little more ex? Or buy from amazon and forget the useless distributors we have in Singapore. Amazon or similar should come in and cut out all these under performing distributors.

If you absolutely want to continue using Amsoil you can try MXTradings at Ubi: http://mxtradings.com

They do stock Amsoil products.

I've so far not seen Amsoil products which can be shipped to Singapore on Amazon.

I ve used Liqui-Moly, Mobil-1, Shell Helix, Penzzoil, Castrol on both conti and JDMs.  Never used Amsoil altho heard some good feedback.

 

Personally I dont think u need to stick to AMsoil.  

 

The best oil I ve used in order of best to good to not so good is...

1.  Liqui Moly [better than orgasm]

2.  Castrol

3.  Mobil 1

4.  Shell/Pennzoil

 

Both my cars are now using Liquimoly.  I used both 5w30 n 5w40.

 

All my hiadees also mostly used this one.  I usually stock up quite a few bottles.


BTW how muchie is 1 lire or 1 quart of Amsoil?

I was using amsoil before too. Too bad priced too high now. Also amazon has a good spread of good oils for approx sgd$7/QT. Shipped to the door too. Why waste time with over priced oil in Singapore.

Best oil I used so far is ATOM. Smooth and free revving. It came and went away quickly. Not too sure if it's still available.

When i switched to amsoil from other brands 10 years ago.. im super impressed with how lasting and smooth amsoil is.

When i cant get hold of amsoil.. Then i tried redline.. and i swear by it and dont even bother amsoil anymore

Now, after on motul 300v.. i wouldnt use any other engine oils ;)

Look out Amazon.com

Sometimes they have liquid moly promo. Around usd40 for 5litres bottle.

I still left 6 bottles of 5litres during the last purchase, for the next 1yr servicing.

If it is ASL,  the spec'ed TBN 12.6 will be hard to match.

 

In my experience, a conventional synthetic (today) will probably last about 7k depending on usage. 

Using the ASL,  there will be no issue hitting the 10k OCI.

in today's era of expensive car prices its best to change EO regularly and more closely.  Cheap insurance for yr car engine.  

 

I ve run 10k intervals previously on Shell Helix and there are some sluggy stuffs on the oil filler cap.  I believe the same could happen to the other "great" brands of oil.  Many people follow WS that recommend 10k km oil change intervals, which is fine if it works for you n your wallet.  But our car engines are also working when car is stationery at traffic junctions waiting for green to go.  If you add that in, 10km will actually be 12k km or more in real terms.

 

7k interval between oil changes is a good discipline.  I now change my oil anywhere between 5k to 6.5k km, as oil is rather cheap these days.  Once i can feel the smoothness of the oil dimishing, I will change the oil.  I am a believer that oil quality n properties depreciates in some straight line form, and any aged oil is never as good as new oil.  And yes i do not waste time n money to do Used Oil Analysis.  I also do not like to use Engine Flush, had bad experience once.  When I wanted to flush the engine clean, I ll just change the oil after another 500 to 1k km.  

 

The oil filter, which can be expensive for some cars, can be changed every 10-12k km.

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.
