  • Not a bad price. Shame I don't use Valvoline synpower. Currently using Castrol magnatec 10w40 for my v6 and 10w30 for my cammed v8 changed every 5000Km. Waiting for magnatec to be on sale again…

    • Will there be problems if changing make of oil but keeping the weight the same

      • Every engine is different. Example my v8 makes hardly any valve train noise and no lifter tapping on cold start with magnatec 10w30 but on penrite hpr 10 10w50 it is noticeably louder on cold start. Both oils will have similar viscosity when its cold (10w) the second number is viscosity at operating temp (100 deg celcius).

        As long as you regularly change your oil I don't think you'll run into any oil related issues

        Also, if your car is designed to run Synthetic oil then I wouldn't suggest putting mineral oil in unless you change it often. Mineral oil breaks down quicker and loses its properties.

    • Then use it. Magnatec is a wank anyway.

  • Is there a limit on how many you can claim in one envelope?
    I don't have time to read all the terms and conditions :) .

  • Pretty damn good deal. Specs are fairly solid.

  • Ask SCA to match/beat the price. Then combine with the AMEX deal (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/255898) to be a true ozbargainer.

  • The sale price went through today. Bought 3 from Albion.

  • It's a shame my cars too old for me too enjoy these great fully synthetic deals.

  • Excellent product for fitting into tight jeans. You know what I mean.

  • Thanks OP. Anyone here drives Subaru and use oils other than log book-specified 0W20? Please share your experience. Am tempted to get this Valvoline except unsure if it meets Subaru requirements. Thanks.

    • Usually 5-30w or 5-40w good for cars under 100,000KM, over that go 10-40w or 10-50w

      No way i would be using a 0-20/30/40 in Australia

      • can understand why you'd say that but if Subaru engineers deem it so….meh

        I'm pretty sure the manual says 0-20W only in cold climates so I think the grandfather post is making a wrong assumption.

      • Why? A 0w-40 is the same as a 5w40 or even a 10w-40 at normal operating temperature.

        WHat subaru year and modle are we talking about?

        the (x)w rating is the oils viscousity when it is cold.
        When you start your engine, you want oil to be free flowing to prevent starvation from initial start up. However, you may run a thick oil like a 15w-xx or 20w-xx in a old car which has oil leaks.

      • Nothing wrong with using 5w30 or 5w40 for cars over 100,000km if the manufacturer specified it.

        I do agree that 0wXX is very thin for Australian conditions, but Boxer engines are may be different.

  • What oil should I use for a V6 Mazda tribute which has done 220k?

  • +1 vote

    Wow, changed the oil and filter flushed twice yesterday even before the deal officially started!
    Right on time, thanks @lucky7777

  • Which grade I should use for my Toyota corolla 1998 with 300K

  • So just bought two from repco mascot and uploaded a photo of my receipt to valveless. Question is do I need to do this twice or does the one receipt with two oils listed enough to get the twenty bucks back?

  • What oil is recommended for SIDI 3.6L VE Commodore?

    • This should be fine for it.

    • Synpower DX-1 5W-30 is the right Valvoline engine oil for your SIDI Commy.
      These engines require a "Dexos 1" specification oil.
      Considering the issues these engines have with oil consumption and timing chain problems, you should really try to use the correct oil.

      Repco also have the Penrite Enviro+GF5 5W-30 on special for $44.99, this is also the correct oil for your engine but not as cheap.
      You'll need 2 bottles though as your engine holds about 7.3 litres despite the owners manual and oil makers sites saying it's 6.7 litres.

      At the end of the day, if your car is out of warranty you can put anything you want in it.

      • Do you think this will be okay? I intend to replace it around 7000kms rather than the 15000km intervals.
        Replacing this every 7-8000 is surely better than using the most recommended oil at 15000k's?

        • Mattwilko, maybe in the olden days, but 15k won't degrade good quality synthetic oil unless you flog it.

        • @JB1:
          Not to mention that the new engines hold nearly twice as much oil as the old ones, which lengthens the oils life considerably.

        • @whitey:
          If you know the SIDI engines you know that they are extremely good at turning oil into sludge and killing motors
          15000km's is just too much, it was a marketing ploy

        • @Mattwilko:
          I've changed the oil on hundreds of SIDI engines with 15,000km intervals and haven't had any issues personally. Maybe others are using the wrong spec oil??

  • You can use it as it's a high spec oil. Your fuel consumption will probably go up a bit, being a 40 weight but this will also help oil consumption if it's burning any.
    If you have any sort of warranty left on the vehicle (which it sounds like you don't) you should use the right stuff.

  • Somehow I missed the original deal.

    So pricematch at Supercheap 3x34.99 = 104.97

    $20 AMEX Cashback
    $30 manufacturer cashback
    brings it down to $54.97

    or $18.32 per 5 L can of 5W-40 fully sync oil. Not bad :-)

    • $20 AMEX Cashback is over.

      Does SCA pricematch? I couldn't find anything about it on their website.

  • I'm going to be that guy.
    Is this synthetic group IV or V?
    If it is III, it's mineral, not synthetic.
    http://www.machinerylubrication.com/Read/29113/base-oil-grou...

    SCA do pricematch this btw.
    Bought enough for a few years of servicing my mothers corolla.
    Question above still stands though.

    • I'm sure it's mineral based based on the price.

      At the end of the day, it's still a good synthetic 5W40 oil.

      Are Group VI and V oils better? Technically yes.

      Will you notice a difference? Unlikely, maybe if you're on the track every weekend and don't change the oil after 20 track days.

      You'll be lucky to find Group VI and V oils under $20/L.

      • You'll be lucky to find Group VI and V oils under $20/L.

        What about Penrite 10 Tenths? (A product I've never used and know very little about).

        • +1 vote

          Penrite makes very good oil and looks to be 100% PAO.

          And about $15 a litre, so not very expensive.

          For the vast vast majority of cars, in the real would it will not be any better than this cheap $25/35 Valvoline Synpower oil.

          Just service the car at the recommended interval, don't trash it when cold and the Valvoline Synpower oil will be more than adequate.
