Shell so bad meh?

I thought it was just average... what are you using now?

If can try to avoid using this eo.
Use Liao fc sucks big time and will make u spent more money on petrol.

For eo try to invest in better brand and those with low saps.
We only change eo every 10k or 6 months why not use a better one which cost
70-100 dollars kind.

100 divede by 6 months, one month 16-17 dollars only.


I use before shell and other good brands like motul , Castro , liquid moley, penrite , royal purple.

Shell really at bottom
So noisy and fc sucks and sometimes engine knocking.

It was mentioned before:

I've said this over a year ago.

Shell oil is actually mineral oil treated to meet test specs for synthetic oil. In most parts of the world except Europe, that allows them to market it as synthetic oil.
Should be the same for now? But given the price had fallen so use and change more often will do ba

About 90-95 for 5 litres.
After oil change, keep the balance then sell off in caroseull.
For 15-20.

Got people buy leftover engine oil.
Think they mixed different brand then use on thier cars.

I sold left over engine oil a few times already.
Atf leftover I also managed to sell it off.

Lynlex is good. Cheap also.

Brought coolant and engine oil and spark plug from thetr before.
Try not to park at the warehouse. Park at hdb OPPSITE. Cheaper

Personally, i have the habit of changing eo every 7k-8k. Cheap ones to expensive eo also use before. Simi EO additives, fuel additives also use. No diff to me on FC, power....ect
Now use Shell and moving to use those loose shell EO pump from big drum.

I change around 7-8k as well.

But this time it feels a little weird, I'm clocking 7k on Liqui Moly + Ceratec... no feel to change yet. Engine runs smooth and quiet still
