Taxi Co want to save $, they use normal oil. Comfort changes oil for their cab once every month. The other two big one do the same. It can Comfort 4 million a year if they do two oil change a month.

Taxi driver don't own the cab, they rent it. Comfort give them 5 lit lube oil every month for topping up.

If the engine eat more oil, they must pay for it. I know some cabbies actually buy used oil from workshop for topping up.

Motul 300V (the new double ester formulation) retails for $30 per litre. I can get it at a lower price. However, my minimum order is a carton of 12 2-litre cans (of the same viscosity). Let me know.

Just an infomation sharing.

Recently, knew that a big car workshop,somethng like Tan Li motor along Defu Lane provide both OWS and Motul engine oil for car service....
Of course, the motul package is almost 20 to 40% more than OWS in term of pricing..

i asked him bout the engine oil packages and whether we can bring in own oil for servicing...he prefers using his own oil..
even advised me against using oil like caarluube and RP ..reason given was they are semi synthetic..so not good.... hur.gif hur.gif .

mmz... well... but his workshop has

Mobil 1 Gold 0w40 and 5w50.. these are branded premium oils too.. where if you buy outside, will cost you a real bomb (that is to say if you buy from petrol kisoks) though we can get it from other sources at a cheaper price...

but caarluube is really a CMI oil according to the feedback and response of so many MCF forumers....

well.. for the workshop, its founded by his father.. i think... but then you must speak to the right mechanic.. the younger guy... called Nigel, its his son... he provides good service and quality worksmanship.. thumbsup.gif

$100 servicing, where to find...

Tyre rotation + balancing easily cost you $15 outside...
Original oil filter about $10..

well, did you speak to the right person? in the workshop sometimes, nigel is not around... there is his dad around, along with another person.. make sure u speak to nigel, call his handphone.. he is a nice person...

mmz... apparently if you dun take up his servicing package, obviously his oil would be expensive, or else you can't really expect him to earn nothing right?

$100 servicing.. where to find?? GST is absorbed too... mmz.. considering we have a markup of 7% gst next year.... if outside, $100 needs a topup of $7 gst knife.gif

do give Huat Lee a try.. call nigel directly... i have listed his workshop and his hp in pg 2...

i went there in oct and returned as satisfied customers.. In VOGS, the Huat Lee Motul Oil thread has grown to 26 pages.. with lots of brothers going for him.. dumping their previous oil like Mobil 1 Gold (his workshop also has them and its the same $100 servicing packge price), all returned very satisfied and happy...

including me thumbsup.gif

maybe we can ask Genie47 to do it?

but according to Genie47, Trex,

they mentioned Motul 300V double ester is really premium stuff..

the workshop i went, also have them

$140 servicing package...very good deal.. but my lousy car dun need it... only need the normal fully synthetic oil, Motul H-Tech 100..

apparently this new formulation is so new, you can't find it on motul asia pacific website.. but u can find them in motul japan website though...

according to many, motul is a very very good oil, at least for Motul 300V thumbsup.gif

Motul is expensive because of their branding and advertising, banners at all prominant race series, sponsered world champion riders and drivers in the majority of racing series do not come cheap. There are other products that use high quality polyolester stuff that retails at less than Motul's dealer price!


you say like this, you win alreadie... coz Mobil 1 Gold and Shell Helix Ultra are even more knife.gif

laugh.gif

Motul 300V is grade 5 in the engine oil.. the highest and most refined form of fully synthetic oil made from double ester and etc... one grade higher than 100% synthetic engine oil.. laugh.gif

FYI, Mobil 1 Gold & SHU are not ester-based.

Thwwx is comparing with oils that are ester-based.

first, gotta see engine response better is compared to what. if you say compared to mineral 50wt, or even synthetic 40wt, isn't that kinda "fei hua"? tongue.gif

anyway i suppose engine response better or worse doesn't have any relation to how well it protects?
