Many thanks to Fabiaman who passed me the carton early this week. I suddenly wanted to do my servicing which was slightly overdue and FMan obliged in meeting up with me urgently.

Boy, this Amsoil really damn good! My states friend did tell me to try this oil when we spoke abt cars as this brand is very very popular in US but unknown here.

After driving off from the servicing mech, very noticeably, the engine revs much more willingly and also very noticeably - much quieter too! I was using Mobil 1 before this and I never had this feeling before when I used the Mobil or Shell Helix.

So happy was I that I didnt mind taking wrong turns this whole week on the roads as I enjoyed driving very much. I am still monitoring fuel consumption as I strongly believe the improved throttle response will improve fuel economy.

One word to describe this lub - EXCELLENT!

Hi Jas... glad u liked the oil.

Response and feedback on the Amsoil has been extremely encouraging and will check with TB if we can get another shipment in.

My 2nd hand stream, when I first got it, doesn't feel smooth at all....
(Previous owner told me he just change engine oil ! But the oil is BLACK !!!)

Immediately, change to AMSOIL and feel so much smoother !

But dunno is it due to lousy oil to good oil or due to the superb properties of AMSOIL ...

If previous owner use mineral, I guess any syntetic oil should give the same effect rite ?

Thanks for the feedback PowerRanger nod.gif thumbsup.gif

I'm glad AMSOIl did good for your car, we hope to get more but in the meantime stock is running out sad.gif

Here in the US AMSOIL is recognized to be as thumbsup.gif as Mobil 1.

Hi Sei Fei Loh,

The bottles are packed in 1 Quart per bottle... which is equivalent to 0.946 liter per bottle.

The stock is currently running very low.
SMS me at 92771800 if you are keen to try it out.

Thanks.

ASMSOIL is strictly mail order in the US so prices are on their online store. Suprisingly I don't see any RP here, only AMSOIL and Redline amongst the usual suspects like Mobil, Quaker State, Valvoline and Pennzoil.

Hi Guyver,

Gd Morning... yes... I am new to this forum. Thank you for your welcome. How come you I drive a Nissan? Btw, that is not my car. It belongs to my dad. d: ) I am a student anyways, so no $$ unimpressed.gif

Btw, I am very interested in COOL's Apollos, but I heard from Sparrow saying our cars need 2 of them. My dad drives an old Cefiro, the more rectangular one. d: )
I am now saving up for apollos.

Hi Guys,

New here in the forum. Just a question.

It states in the review for Amsoil that the oil can last till 25k miles (40k km). Does it mean no engine oil change required as per normal interval of 10k km. Or how often does one need to chnage engine oil using Amsoil.

To offer my own experience, I'm using Amsoil 10/40 in my Nissan Sunny B14 now.

It is smoother than the Castrol 20/50 I was using before. I'm pretty happy with the results thus far, even after 5,000km. thumbsup.gif

Think it all depends on how much we want to protect the engine.... and also.. the temperature in S'pore is different from US... and there's more highway cruising as compared to S'pore start stop conditions.... so we must adjust accordingly to all this factors as well.

Just my 2 cents... smile.gif

Topgun... yes Amsoil also do state on their marketing communications that oil change at 25,000km change is "no problemo"...

Driving condition is probably different in the States and Spore... Spore driving is pretty much start stop start stop and thus wears the engine even more than the States where freeway driving in the large country wears the engine lesser.

Dunno whether the above makes sense why 25,000 km change for the msoil in Singapore is stretching it a bit too far.... but the matter of fact is that the manufacturer's recommendation of 25,000km change shows the product quality and level confidence this reputed manufacturer placed on the lubricant.

Like Fabiaman mentioned, AMSOIL spec-ed up to 25kmiles but in severe driving conditions like start-stop traffic, AMSOIL can last up to three times the manufacturer's interval.

My Volvo stats change oil 15k km for normal conditions and 5k for severe conditions, so AMSOIL can push up to 15k km for severe conditions in this case. I do stress that the oil filter should STILL be changed every 5000km.

For those unfamiliar with the discussion here abt AMSOIL's draining intervals, I have reproduced a short write up on the Engine Oil which MCF is selling.


PROVIDES EXTENDED DRAIN INTERVALS

AMSOIL High Performance Synthetic 10W-40 Motor Oil features a superior synthetic composition and advanced performance additives, performing much longer than competing conventional and synthetic oils. No other major oil manufacturer matches AMSOIL's 25,000-mile or one-year drain interval recommendations.


Does sound a bit far fetch to drain at 25k miles but this is direct words from the manufacturer. Also note this is base on US context, not that their cars are different from ours, but more of the driving conditions which is diff.
