Anybody else tried Meta Oil 5W40?

Recommended Posts

Saw this new brand made in Singapore in Carousell recently and decided to try. Bought 2 bottles and got my workshop friend to change for a small labor cost.So far after a week all good. Went back and bought 2 more bottles to standby. Apparently the boss said they are doing some soft launch promo price now and will be selling off the shelves in supermarkets soon. When asked him if price will increase he just said enjoy the promo price first.

 

4L bottle fully synthetic api sn/sm $17.90

I tried this oil on my Civic 1.8, about 2000km, FC from (previous Shell Oil) 12.5km/L to near 13km/L, significantly improved

I tried this oil on my Civic 1.8, about 2000km, FC from (previous Shell Oil) 12.5km/L to near 13km/L, significantly improved 

 

If the fuel economy improves, then it is likely to be a thinner grade of oil that allows the pistons to move more easily.  I'm concerned whether the oil breaks down easily if used for 10,000 km.

 

In addition, there are some car workshops that charge only $60 for very basic car servicing that includes Shell Ultra Helix 5W40 and oil filter.  The engine oil itself has a market value of about $35, so these workshops seem to be value for money.

 

I'm thinking of utilizing the saving to do serious maintenance like changing spark plugs or cleaning the oxygen sensor more regularly etc.
