Not sure if blackness is the best indicator of whether the oil quality is poor. But I don’t use SHU anymore. Sucks.

Yup Hyundai Komocco uses SHU. But your servicing is part of the sales package... so you don’t really have an alternative without forgoing the “free” servicing package right?

I changed from SHU 5w40 to SHU 0w30 last Nov at Hawk Tayar (brought my own oil). FC now consistently 13.5-14 km/l vs. 11-12+ km/l previously. Engine also less noisy.

Welcome edmwing to Cars & Cars.

Yes, I heard SHU 0w-30 is a very different oil from SHU 5w-40. The former is somewhat a higher quality oil.

How much did your oil cost? How many litres?

Actually, Shell's EO is considered budget kind lar. Even my friends working in Shell also don't use Shell's EO.

Thanks bro! I bought 4l for $38 from Lynlex. Pretty okay using on b&b cars. Intending to try their Motul X-Clean EFE 5w30 next - my friend used Motul (TRD) and experienced better FC vs. Idemitsu so I'd like to try that brand out.

I have always been a supporter of Castrol EDGE. But back then I was using 5w-40. Not sure about the 30.

17 inch in JB not that cheap.
Compare to Singapore maybe 10-20 sgd difference.

The only thing is cheap is alignment / balancing that u will save when installing the new tyres.
