    Does anyone know if this is compatible with VW Golf Mark VI. Online suggests the Euro version of this oil but is there really a substantial difference?

    Hhmm. Maybe it's time to give Nylon a go. Have always been using Penrite HPR 5

      Nylon

      Hmm I would stick with the Penrite. The Nulon is a good alternative to the Penrite tho'

      •  

        Lol. Memories of poor press from a while back about NUlon products . Might have actually contained Nylon back them. ;)

  •  

    A part of me thinks this is just some cheap oil they bulk buy and put into their own branded containers. Surely not as good as Mobil, Shell, Castrol ?

    •  

      They manufacture it themselves in Moorebank NSW.

    •  

      Our family mechanic is a well known mechanic who only works on high-end Mercedes' and he once told me (about 12 years ago) that he only ever uses Nulon oil as he considers it the best.

    Hi.. is it fine to mix this with castrol edge 5w30?

    • +1 vote

      Never a good idea to mix different engine oils. Even with same viscosity. Will have different compounds and might create reactions such as sludge.

      •  

        Source? What different compounds? How can sludge form? Genuinely curious here.

        •  

          Past experience so I learned never to mixed different brand oils(Maybe different now). But tbh it was almost 10+ years ago in a EJ25T engine I added 1L Valvoline something (XLD?Classic? cant remember - Thats all they had at the servo) thinking it wouldnt matter. Next oil change it came out different to previous changes as I've always had Mobile 1. Took apart the turbo, checked bearings ok, check casing and confirm early sludge.

        That is really bad misinformation. It is a requirement of api specification that all oil be mixable. Please do not listen to this guy

        • +2 votes

          Assuming its true, I didnt know that about API. So many different ratings and overlaps its easy to mix two different branded oils with funny results. But hey its 2020 and maybe they make oils so they identify as any thing they want.

      I buy between this and the Castrol edge 5w30 ( whichever one cheaper ) for my parents 4WD and I drive the car all the time honestly never notice the difference between the both

    • +2 votes

      Small quantities yes, 50/50 no. I also wouldn't recommend mixing them unless you needed a top-up before service.

      • +1 vote

        I agree. It's not like you ever get all the old oil out when you do an oil change, so having a little of a different brand in won't hurt, but don't mix half/half. A few 100ml probably won't matter though.

        need 6L so planning to add 1L castrol edge which is left over from previous oil change.

    Castrol Edge or this one is better?

    • +1 vote

      Castrol, probably. There is no real-world evidence to suggest either way tbh

    • +3 votes

      Who knows. I think they are both high quality. Best idea is to just change it on time, rather than worry about minute differences between the two. Some people want to know the best oil, but then won't change it for 20,000km or 2 years for example.

    •  

      Castrol Edge is a top tier brand and from experience, it has been good. No reason to change now, even if Nulon is a little cheaper.

    •  

      Castrol is 120 years old, racing pedigree, OEM oil supplier to many car brands. Vs an Aussie brand from 1980s and oil mixed in moorebank (above post mentioned).

      You take your pick.

        Castrol makes great oil, but they also make average oils too. Just look at the price points.

        I'd bet this oil is much better than any Castrol oil that costs $25.

    Just be aware that if you're price matching make sure the other shop has the same 5L bottle. I had an issue where they wouldn't price match because SCA for example only sold it in 6L bottles.

    Can this be used for lawn mower which is 4stroke engine

    Where does it say that the sales end 8 March?

    Can this be used on VW bora 2005 2.3l engine.
    I recently bought it, and do not have the owner's manual, so i do not know how to check the recommended engine oil.
    (just wondering if 5w-30 is good for the engine or not.)

    I just price matched it at sca. Thanks mate!

    Should i use this for my little motorbike Honda CBR125R which is recommended for 10-30W

      "A car engine oil aims to reduce friction between moving parts in order to provide good fuel economy and efficiency. … If the friction level is too low, the clutch will not be able to engage and will cause slippage. So what this means is you should choose a special motorcycle oil designed for your bike."

      Look for oil which says JASO MA.
      My bike uses 10W-40, so I use either Nulon High Performance 10W-40 or Penrite HPR5 5W-40, which are both JASO MA. The Nulon is often ~$25 and the Penrite ~$35, so much cheaper than "motorcycle" labelled oil.

    Will this be suitable for 2015 Toyota Corolla?

    What’s the definition of “long drain interval” and will the oil filter keep up?

    • +1 vote

      LL just has extra additives to prevent breakdown of the oil, including the things that help prevent wear over long service intervals.

      LL (long life) aka long service intervals are 15k+

        How long can you go in between regular full synthetic oil changes (regular suburban driving, no towing, no hard driving)? I usually change mine every 10k

  •  

    Can I use this to service a 10 year old car that specifies 5W-20 oil?

    •  

      Maybe check the specs in the owners manual, some have a range of different weights/viscosities depending on the ambient temperature. The spec will also define the api/sn classification which can help with determining compatibility. I’m guessing yes. The 30 viscosity at operating temp might reduce fuel efficiency slightly, but maybe see what other guys say. What car out of curiosity?

    Anybody able to comment on which is better? This or the Shell Helix Ultra? It is for a 2004 Saab 9-3 if that makes any difference

    2012 holden cruze needs a very specific dexos 2 variant. thanks just picked up a bottle of this stuff.

    Just got 4 bottles from local SCA and paid $90 via gift cards.

    They were closing so didn't enforce 2 per customer.

    Is this for both petrol and diesel cars?
