    well i do, but seldom actually. savings like $10-30 bucks but troublesome.

    -Buy Mobil oil from giant, 5 litres (1 big jerry can + 1 litre bot) or Redline from forum
    -Buy original eo filter and oil plug seal from my AD, i dun like to use cheong type.
    -Go to thomson caltex find ppl to chg ( $10 )
    -Spark plug optional

    But these 2 months have elf oil promotion range from $78-$98 with EO and EO filter, so no need so troublesome

    PM me if u need the contacts

    use mobil one can liao la, KIC got a higher flash point for hard driving. If u dun track or everyday whack like got LTA chasing ur arse, no need to use too high end branded stuff. In fact, u might not be paying for the quality alone.

    But if i own a car with a engine non re-con 5 yrs old with a mileage of 100k above for normal driving city/xpressway, i will use a visco 30 oil and maybe a 40 for on/off track purpose. Reason why is i feel that bearings, rods or watever has already reach the age of having higher chance to fail, so i wouldn't wanna add on the burden by using visco 50 oil that will require more mechanical movement of the engine to generate sufficient heat to melt down the oil which also can cause bearings to stress more at that age of the parts.

    I have used Mobile one, Shell ultra, castrol edge and Amoil b4. Personnally i feel the branded are overhype. Not really significant also comparing to better FC or better hp.

    Lately, I using CDGE, using house brand fully syn - abit of noticable different. Engine much more silent during idling, FC got 10% better. "I did remove my VS when I go for servicing thou". Could it be the EO or VS removal causing the difference?

    well i dun think VS will affect much..

    And EO does not increase hp, commercials sometimes brag abt it

    no

    e.g. 10w40
    10 = cold operation temp, for ang moh countries
    40 = thickness of oil after blending

    like i said, u use xxW30 or xxW40 oil can liao for daily drive. competition or street fighter then maybe need to research more at blah blah "flash point" blah blah "visco"
