    Oil recommendations for 2013 Toyota Yaris 1.3L - 2nz-fe in Australia

    It's a real question for me, Im just trying to learn about motor oil so I can make informed choices as I have no idea. I realise the little toyota motor isnt that fussy but the owners manual did throw me a bit because it suggests a wide range of oils as "ok" but "recommends 10w30". So from...

    Oil recommendations for 2013 Toyota Yaris 1.3L - 2nz-fe in Australia

    Thanks very much for all the information. Ive seen the Edge 5w30 A3/B4 is on sale so will give it a go. Ive also found some very helpful old posts (thanks SR5) which have given me better understanding of some of the differences between A3/B4 A5/B5 etc. Would using the Shell ultra 5w40 A3/B4...

    Oil recommendations for 2013 Toyota Yaris 1.3L - 2nz-fe in Australia

    Thanks very much for all the replies, its a great help. Ive just had a look on the Supercheap Auto site, some good specials on Castrol edge and the shell ultra helix 5w30. Im not sure why the shell ultra 5w30 isnt down as "suitable" for the little yaris, even though it is 5w30. Im trying to find...

    Just had a response from Penrite Technical Support, they confirmed that it is the same product and that Vantage is only available through REPCO stores.

    Penrite Vantage

    I've just been reading the specs, they seem very close but there are some slight differences on the specs page, the 15w40 Vantage has extra licence: Renault RN 0700, Renault RN 0710, VW 505 00. They also mention on the semi syn page that they do re label it for Repco stores. Why would they do...

    trying to choose an oil V8 Ford 351 Cleveland

    Well we're not too far away, Im in Springwood. I like the sound of SR5's suggestion of Penrite Vantage 15w40. The zinc package seems reasonably high, although less than the 1600ppm of the hpr30

    trying to choose an oil V8 Ford 351 Cleveland

    Thanks very much for the help. Im in the Blue Mountains, but not cold where I am. The engine seems in ok condition, especially considering it sat still for a long while. The rest of the FJ40 cruiser needs a bit of work but Im having fun tinkering with it. Yeah the 20w60 from Penrite seems to get...

    trying to choose an oil V8 Ford 351 Cleveland

    It was rebuilt, but about more than 10 years ago and I don't know anything about the build. The car was sitting in a shed when i got hold of it. I would say it is just stock clearances....the motor is in an old Toyota landcruiser.

    trying to choose an oil V8 Ford 351 Cleveland

    Hi all, The aussie lube guides for my 351 Cleveland engine are confusing me a bit. Just looked on <a href="http://www.datateck.com.au/Lube/PenriteAus/" target="_blank">Penrite lube checker</a> and they're recommending 20W-60 and even 25W-70 for this engine! I know that high zinc oils are...

    Penrite oil in Australia ... very high zinc number

    I ended up getting the Shell Ultra 5w40 for the 2uz-fe, the Supercheap auto place I went to had run out of the penrite HPR 5. From what I'm reading the Shell Ultra 5w40 with GTL is pretty good. Thanks for all your help. Drew

    Penrite oil in Australia ... very high zinc number

    Thank you for your responses, very helpful for me as I have been wondering why Penrite have this high Zn sales pitch and didnt realise it was a Zn and boron total. Ive just spent the last day reading as much as i could fit in about current ratings and what the ratings/specs mean....there is so...

    Penrite oil in Australia ... very high zinc number

    Hi all, Does anyone know why the Australian company Penrite have such high Zinc number? The oils I'm considering using for my Toyota 2uz-fe are 100% PAO and ester blends in either 5w30, 10w40 or 0w40, but they are crazy high Zn levela...all have 1800 to +2200 ppm Zn! I have seen some M1 have...

    Toyota V8 : 2UZ-FE : Mobil Formula S2 10w40

    I wondered if the 40w would be better for the hot summer (Australian) driving I do, where it oftens gets to be 45 deg C in the hot parts. I thought the 40w oil may provide some benefit in this climate, but then reading some of the posts on BITOG it seems that the thinner oil can actually help...

    Toyota V8 : 2UZ-FE : Mobil Formula S2 10w40

    Hello, I recently bought a 2005 Toyota Landcruiser 100 with the v8 4.7L 2UZ-FE engine. It had 113,800km (70,700 miles) on the clock. According to the previous owner it had done approx. 7000km (4350 miles) on the oil, which was Mobil Formula S2 10w40. I have never done a UOA so i thought i would...
