    Actually, kahit yung mga highways natin eh restricted lang tayo to 100kph, then di rin naman kalayuan at just 300km or so.





    I'm just beginning to understand that these 'cheap' Zic, Hyundai, etc. "fully/ 100% synthetic" engine oils are mostly from VHVI base oils.
    That is, unlike yung mga PAO or Group IV base oils, these are Group II/ Group III hydrocracked oils to have those PAO characteristics.
    So tanggap ko rin na sa mga usual use case scenario sa atin, these can already offer enough protection better than mineral oils.
    You get the benefits of pure synthetic oils (up to a point), at a mineral or semi-synthetic oil price point.

    But then I can also understand the others who chose to pay for their peace of mind.
    Sa mga tipid.. pwede na.. hehe.. sabi nga di naman kikibo yan..

    using amsoil on innova, so far so good. shifting is smoother, less effort sa arangkada than previous casa oil.

    placebo effect lang yan. during the 90's we used thicker oil and you really notice a difference after changing the oil

    but starting late 90's early 2000's when you change the oil you don't notice anything

    btw i just recently changed to amsoil on the ford, no difference at all

    Based on my experience parang pare pareho lang ang performance ng oil sa car ko. I've tried Mobil 1 FS, Honda Genuine Mineral and a lot of other FS and mineral oils, regardless if they are fake or not, may time talaga na parang magaan ang takbo at meron ding time na para kang may hinihila.

    Except one time when I used 20w50, na nabibigatan ako sa hila, I don't know if it's psychological, because everytime I use the car, first thing that goes to my mind is nasilaw ako dahil mura itong Toyota genuine oil only to learn later na mura talaga ang 20w50. But if I press the pedal harder, responsive naman sya.

    Maybe performance depends on weather? ...

    full synthetic daw. mura. shows a real API donut so it's officially certified (xteer for example doesn't show the donut)

    pero walang acea ratings so it has the same specs as a 10w30 mineral oil like valvoline premium conventional or havoline formula. similar price as these two mineral oil also

    As in tumigil na sila sa paggamit nito or temporarily out of stock lang?

Mineral , semi synthetic or fully synthetic?
