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.

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.... .
didnt go to the ws again since..

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..
$100 servicing, where to find...
Tyre rotation + balancing easily cost you $15 outside...
Original oil filter about $10..

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
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...

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

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
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..

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