Best full synthetic for the money

published

Use it in a 3.6 VF Commodore.
Changed every 10000km. As I will give the a flogging on the track it can be as low as 6000 change.
The oil holds up just fine as a good full synthetic should.
I buy it in 20ltr volumes at a time (as per price below) but will be looking at 200litre purchases in future

Purchased in July 2021 at Sparesbox for $191.00.

I can't try anything else but nulon

published

I spend 14 years driving a Holden Commodore VT and I sold it with 327K on the clock, never burn or leak a drop of oil, have a high compression reading by the time of selling it for his ages.
Since that time I only use Nulon 5W-30 on my VE Berlina and now on VE Calais V serie ll.
yes is a bit priced but doing the service every 7.5K km., I believed in the benefit of long engine life.
I'm happy with Nulon performance since 1998 up to day on my cars. cheers

Purchased in January 1998 at Autobarn for $59.00.

Works well. Reline oil is far better but 3 times the price

published

Love the oil price.
Wish it came in a few other grades for same price
No problems with it. On a toytota aristo 2JZ GE
With 160k on it. Smoothe as silk and cant tell if its even running
Castrol synthetic not as good. Twice the price.
But redline synthetic is far better still. But cost a lot more.
Love the flashlight promo . Its worth a few bucks

Best oil ever

published

Been using Nulon fully synthetic oil for decides. At 15000 km oil still hindu coloured. Believe this brand of oil is best in the market. Never burns black within 15000 km. Great oil and is paten specialed under $40. Also believe engine runs smoother and gives improved petrol consumption. Car rated at 10.5 litres per 100 km but I can get 9.5.

The best engine oil for my cars

published

Bought the 6L for $60 from Supercheap Auto. Used it on both my honda accord and toyota echo. Noticed less ping on the Honda and increased engine performance on the toyota echo. I've previously used Honda engine oil and can feel the improve engine performance on the Honda. Highly recommended this oil.

Great full synthetic for diesel.

published

I use this in a jeep kk and a izuzu d-max and its great value for money for an Aussie product especially the 10l that is normally on special at super cheap auto. I've tired other oils but Nulon seem better with engine noise and fuel economy even after 10k. They do make 2 different types of this oil so be careful which one you pick or need.

Thank you Nulon! Greatest engine oil I've ever had!

published

I've just have a oil change on my 08 Toyota Camry, replacing the old oil to Nulon 5W-30 Long Life full synthetic. As soon as I start it up, I was shocked how easy it is to start the engine. What's more, while I was driving back home, I nearly confused whether I have purchased another car, a better car. The engine is much smoother and quieter than before, those improvements were just done by simply changing engine oil, unbelievable! Compared with other full synthetic oils on the market, the Nulon one was incredibly cheap to purchase! I spent only $30 to purchase 5 litters. I really thank Nulon to give me such a good product with a reasonable price! Good work Nulon!

Fixed cold stat valve tapping, more power and smoother

published

I had cold start valve tapping noise with Shell HX8 and decided to try another oil brand. I used Nulon 5/30 long life with Nulon E20 additive and the engine noise stopped after a short while and the engine became much smoother and more powerful as well, vey happy especially as it is also cheaper then my old brand. Thankyou Nulon!

Driven about 600k on the Nulon now and engine rattle is same as pre-Nulon, so don't know if I imagined intial noise reduction, or whether there was a reduction but it dissipated.

Have been using shell synthetic!!!!!

published

I was sceptical but thought nothing ventured, I'm seriously impressed I'm getting 760ks from 65liters my car has always been smooth and adequately powerful for my needs but I've noticed no noticeable oil usage compared to shell!!!! Not going back,I'll soon be driving to Sydney from Brisbane I'm curious as to what the result will be but in a nutshell I've become a nylon fan!

Full Synthetic 5W-30 / 5W-40 Long Life

Is the fully synthetic 5-30 suitable for my 2002 monaro 5.7V8 supercharged. Which has mild engine work. Thanks

1 answer

Gary Fawcus, synthetic oils are suitable for high performance, high heat and highly stressed engines. Synthetic oils usually include a mixture of molecules that are similar, but which are enhanced to produce less friction and more lubrication in order to make your car run more efficiently, meaning it flows more easily than oils with higher viscosity—which helps to improve the engine's fuel efficiency. The faster the oil flows, the quicker the engine parts can turn and are lubricated. Due to your 2002 Monaro 5700 cm3 (348 cu-in) V8 being supercharged,

I would definitely use synthetic oil of a low viscosity like the 5W-30 to 0W-40 but this is not definite and don’t take my word for it! Get the appropriate advice if the 5W-30 is specifically suitable for your Monaro 5700 cm3 supercharged engine is? As there are experts that are and have used synthetic oils on the Monaro type 5700 cm3 (348 cu-in) V8’s and they are much more qualified to give you advice. For example, I’ve got a 2015 Citroen C4 1560 cm3 (95.2 cu-in) diesel that has a turbo, the synthetic 5W-30 is the only recommended oil for my vehicle and it works well and makes this diesel engine perform excellently and efficiently in all weather conditions, be it below zero or in 45c temperatures. I recommend that you get appropriate advice of the exact synthetic oil that your supercharged engine requires.
