Shannow uses it in a Nissan diesel here in Australia. I'm sure he'll pop in a bit later. A couple of other Aussies here have bought it recently, (Losiho and Maybe Toyota18, IIRC) but I don't think they've used it yet. You could search under Formula R 0w-40 as well, as that is how it's marketed here.

Hi. Yes am using it in my camry not bad oil.Seems to be a oil with good cleaning action.MMM Fuel economy Mobil1 0w-40 is the best.But less engine noise compaired to Mobil1 0w-40.I might stay with this oil.Had a very good experience with Motul 300v 5w-30.But didnt like it due to no API rated oil.Some say BP Visco 7000 0w-40 and Castrol Formula R 0w-40 is the same oil with two brand names.Am not sure.

Yep, I'm using it in a turbodiesel at present. It's giving me worse fuel economy than M1 0W-40, about the same as a dino 15W-40. Being a diesel, I can't tell if it makes more or less noise than the M1. Will go back to M1 next change.

The Motul website says it exceeds all curent API ratings. Mods, Shouldn't this be in the general oil section? Nothing to do with GC.

Since SLX is now listed as a "Workshop oil" only, I guess you can call Formula R / RS 0w40 the "other" GC [Wink] [Smile]
