Now we can get 5W-50 and 15W-50 Mobil 1 in Aus. Previously, 15W-50 was only ever listed on the Mobil site as a motorcycle oil. http://www.mobil.com.au/mobil/mn_mobil_products_mobil1.asp [ August 21, 2003, 08:00 PM: Message edited by: Andrew ]
quote:Which Motul oil is better, the 5w40 or the 0w40? A guy in my car club owns a speed shop which stocks only the 0w40 Motul, and he really wants me to try it out in my car sometime. He can get other viscosities though, but for his customers he finds the 0w40 works best (he typically works on LS1 and LT1 Camaros, Firebirds and Corvettes, and Buick Regal Grand Nationals) He claims every single customer he's sold this oil has claimed their engines run much smoother and with higher oil pressure too (although most of them are switching from Mobil 1 so the higher oil pressure is understandable considering they're going from 30wt to 40wt oil) This guy doesn't know a lot about oils, but he did tell me it's a mostly ester based oil. It's $13.50 per liter but he will sell it to me at his cost of $11.50 per liter. Depending on how my German 0w30 testing goes, I may test out this oil next year.
