Ah, ozbargains oil of choice.
It was 29.99 last year, i think
Supercheap heard about the drone attack on Saudi oil so jacked it
Amateur question: Can I use this oil for the MT-07?
nope. That's a motorbike. Motorbike oil is different.
Arghhh. Thank you
Hic , I've been using that on my motorbike Honda Spada VT250 for years , It seem run OK , and recently I use same oil for Scooter Honda pcx150 .
Motorcycles need a oil suitable for a wet clutches with no friction modifiers.
Penrite HPR 5 or MC-4ST works. Some people also use Shell Rotella T6 which is a diesel oil for trucks. You want an oil that is at least JASO MA or MA2 certified.
Just about to do my first oil change on the bike, thanks for the suggestion
this might help with a general oil spec.
Thanks, it recommends 10W-30, 10W-40, 10W-50, 15W-40,20W-40 or 20W-50
Which type do you think I should go for, considering summer is just around the corner?
You need the correct specification as a starting point.
API service SG type or higher, JASO standard MA
API service SG type or higher, JASO standard MA
And the chart gives an ambient temperature range. 10w-40 covers -10c to 45c and will be fine unless you do track days or ride like a nob on the street. You probably won't be riding in greater than 45c ambient temperatures (it's the pits with all the gear on) although the road temperature will be much higher on a 45c day.
Use the Castrol or Penrite (or whatever oil you like) lube finder. It will be a motorcycle specific oil because of the wet clutch.
castrol Power1 4T 10w-40 or Penrite MC 4ST 10w-40
@brad1-8tsi: Thanks mate, you're a legend
@Kelvin0911: You're welcome.
Happy riding. It looks like a fun bike. I had BMW airheads. The cylinder heads would scrape on the road in corners.
Anyone uses this for zre152 corolla 2007? If so is this good choice? What is better option? Daily drive about 30km a day and few more in the weekend
I use penrite 5w-30 pretty happy with it. Previously I had used 15w-40 and was getting increased fuel consumption. My rolla is a 2006 1zz-fe.
I am currently using this oil on my zre182 2015 if that helps, no issues with it so far. I always pick up a couple bottles when it goes on sale..
Putting this into such a car seems like a great case of feeding strawberries to pigs, but it's cheap enough so you may as well.
(my wife has an 09 and I put in whatever is cheapest of the correct grade)
Exactly, i probably wouldn't use Castrol Edge for this car if it wasn't always on sale
yuup its all good. mine is also 2007 zre152r
yes, it's a good oil for that engine
That's still quite cheap for 5W-30. Now I just need Liqui Moly to go on sale..
anyone use this for subaru forester 2013-2018 range?
I use this in a 2016 Subaru WRX,
previously was using Nulon and didn't notice any difference.
I just buy whatever is on sale that is 5w30 full syn and meets the standard subaru oil requirements according to the manual.
they all do the same job.
From what I understand you should not be useing this oil on a 2016 WRX the log book calls for an oil that's SN or higher
This oil's specification is SL back from 2001 they released SM in 2004 and now alot of modern cars require the SN spec that was released in 2011.
On my 2011 XV, 2003 forester, 2003 WRX, 2017 WRX STI, I use truck oil for the last 15 years. Cheap and best oil I've used
I use this for my 2012 Forester XT
Used to use it on my Liberty. Fuchs made it quieter on startup but in terms of wear/performance the castrol was fine and I threw far too much money at that Liberty.
Isn't that quite an old specification now? Most engine oils are SM or SN with some new oils being SN plus. Please correct me if I wrong
Thanks for pointing that out. Was going to order this for an FG XR6 as the Castrol Rego2Oil website recommended it, but it clearly does not meet the ILSAC GF4 spec which is equivalent to API SM.
I wish I'd seen your comment earlier; I could have ordered the correct oil off Sparesbox eBay with the 20% off which expired last night!
Just letting anyone that ownes a VW UP!, know that this oil can be used for your car…
Yes should be perfectly fine. It has the vw 502/505 rating. Either 5 30 or 5 40. I'd use this as my first choice.
Good for almost any watercooled VW unless it's a diesel with DPF and some of the early PD diesels.
Is it bad to change oil viscosity ?
I currently use 10W-30 in my car, as when I used to get it serviced, that's what the dealer used. Even though the manual specifies 5w-30 should be used.
Would it be ok to change now or just stick to 10-30?
Edit: Did some reading, would be fine to do. the 5W would lubricate the engine quicker on cold starts
go for it
Isn't 5W-30 for more colder climates?
Depends on the car. I run 5w-30 all year round in my Octavia 1.8tsi. It's the correct oil as per VWs specification.
If you have a HQ Holden with a red motor then 5w-30 would be inappropriate unless you were in Mt Buller in the middle of winter.
As always, read the recommendations in your owners manual or use an oil manufacturers lube finder.
Interestingly, for the past 2 sales, their listing in ebay marked as out of stock. The stock went back up again once the price has revertes back to normal price. Not good, SCA.
Went into supercheap, seems like everyone is buying the penrite stuff, plenty of castrol left. 6v 5L ozb style.
Got 2 from Auburn shop today. Looking to get 0W-40 for the N55B30T0.
