    Amateur question: Can I use this oil for the MT-07?

    • +3 votes

      nope. That's a motorbike. Motorbike oil is different.

      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.

      •  

        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

          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

    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)

    •  

      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?

    "API SL/CF"
    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…

    • +1 vote

      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

  •  

    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.
