The Good Oil
I have a 2007 Ford Territory 4Ltr Petrol Barra motor with low kms, less than 80,000, and it drives like new.
I am going to be doing a bit of towing with the Territory and wanting to do the best to preserve this engine. I did quite some research before deciding to purchase the best oil advised for this motor and our Aussie conditions which was Pentrite HRP 5, 5 W40 Fully Synthetic.
Not knowing exactly what oil had been used at the previous service, likely the dealer used cheapest mineral based oil, and now going to a synthetic oil I decided to u...
My Mazda bus has 298K on the clock , Have used Penrite HPR Deisel for the past four oil changes . The old girl loves it , donk always sounds sweet . Also support Australian companies! Can't supply receipt for purchase as my last one was back in 1018 .
Purchased in October 2018 at Super Cheap Auto .
The oil is tops. but the size is not.
I have always found Penrite oils to be exceptional, and have used them exclusively in my Jeep Grand Cherokee. I am not very fond of the size of the containers available now, as I need 10.5 liters of oil in the engine sump and 4.5 liters in the transmission. It means that I have to purchase make up size containers at an increase in cost. As I wrote at the start Penrite oil products are 5 star. Kindest Regards Denis Kilner
My hybrid love it, However should have gone with 10-30 instead or 10-40
My hybrid love it, even though i went a bit too thick should have went with 10w-30 or 10w40. I'm not sure if Toyota dealer even change my oil as every morning during cold start every time i put it in to gear I have that horrible scary click, now it is out of warranty, so the oil change myself, no more click during cold start and the engine runs quiter, when it needs to run cuz you know.... Hybrid
Aussie owned & a great oil
Using the HPR5 5w/40 in the camry & it's a step up from the Gulf Western that was in it previously.
Kudos to the Penrite live chat people on their website,they are very helpful.
Bargain @ $36 from Supercheap when on sale for the 6 litre container
Next time i'll try the 10 tenths in the camry
High wear observed in oil
This is for a Magna 6G74 engine on LPG. Very poor experience with this oil that I bought based on the certifications listed on the bottle. The used oil had high copper amounts. It makes me question the validity of those claims.
Purchased in June 2017.
Penrite HPR 5 is the best oil I've used.
I have a 2004 Corolla that has covered 340,000km, with the original engine, never having been replaced or overhauled. I've used Penrite HPR 5 for the last 3 changes, of which- every 15,000km. The engine is quieter and uses less oil (virtually no oil) compared to the other "fully synthetic" oils I've used. Outstanding product.
My car loves me for it
Since I purchased my Mitsubishi TL over 4 years ago, and converted to dual fuel, I have not experienced any problem, I now use Penrite for all my lubricating needs, my car is purrrrrrrrrrring like a kitten. So am I,
thank you Penrite!!
Purchased in January 2015.
ford 7.3 powerstroke superduty
the recommended oil as per user manual for f350 7.3 power stroke. either WSS-M2C171-C or CJ4 , CI-4 is the older american standard. hope this helps those trying get the right product as even the recommended by thr website doesnt give the accurate. most of time its the older CI-4.
Can't go wrong with Penrite
Used HPR5 for over a decade in my old car and it never used a drop of oil between services and ran as good as new. While the formula has changed a bit over the years I now use HPR5 in my new car and again never uses a drop of oil between services and runs nicely. I love Penrite oils and would recommend it over anything else.
Love it !!!!!!!
Used hpr 5 and loved my engine performance and mileage. Used Penrite engine flush as well when doing oil change. And you what oil is as clean on dipstick after 4000 kms as I have just changed oil now . Simply loved it . Was on special in supercheap bought 2 buckets of 10 litres for myself.
The Perfect oil for a hard towing V8.
I have have used Penrite HPR 10 - 10w 50w oil in my 2004 Sahara V8...mods Extractors,into 4inch Taipan S/s muffler into 4inch resonator & single tail pipe, Ships Turbos Hi Temp Heat Insulation covering Air K & N filter Cleaner and Throttle body intake.. UniChipped, Dyno tuned V8 for the last 9 years also Towing a Future.System Jet670 2.8+ ton caravan twice round Oz each trip well over 15mths & 29 thousand Klms plus and it never used oil between the 5thou to 6thou Oil changes when Towing, or the 9 thou to 10k just the Sahara only, its never ove...rheated or had any motor problems now at 225229ks it goes just like it did 12 years ago when i bought it with 85 thousand ks on the clock...But Before each " Loop " All Fluids were changed No Exceptions. I still checked the oil as frequently on the 2nd trip as i did on the 1st but i gained much more confidence in the Penrite Oil that i was using on the 2nd trip as i progressed. i check my oil every night regardless long after setting up my caravan, I have great confidence in Penrite Oil after 2 long around Australia Trips.
4.7l V8 100 series landcruiser engine
since buying my beautiful landcruiser 2nd hand 165000klms was not sure what oil to use so did a search on your penrite search page and came up with this product. it uses no oil whatsoever and at 5000klms oil still looks brand new dont know what magic you guys are into but it appears that your product is the pinnacle of oil technology. no other product shall go near my baby cruiser ever again even runs cooler as well, you n guys know ur stuff thank you for looking after my vehicle. should reach 500,000 klms without an issue. take care!
This is excellent!!
Before using this oil I used Royalpurple's HPS.
Royalpurple was a good oil, but oil leakage occurred.
In addition to the property that the engine of my car originally leaks easily, Royalpurple may be caused by PAO base oil.
After exchanging with Penrite HPR, the oil leak has stopped.
Penrite not only seems to have protected the engine by checking whether the oil film is strong, it seems that rise in oil temperature is suppressed as well.
The engine feeling also became smooth and torqueful, so I am really satisfied with changing the oil.
Afterwards it is best if this feeling continues to about 5000 km.
If so, I will also make the next oil change HPR.
Keeping the rotor happy.
Was hunting around for ages for a decent mineral oil, synthetic ones cause some issues with rotary engines (Google it).
Used the engine recommendation tool on their website, and contacted them directly to confirm my research and landed on the HPR 30.
Engine is loving it and I don't think she'll be seeing any other oil from now on.
Good for my 2011 V8 Merc E550
I'd been wasting my money on Mobil 1 as Mercedes recommend it. I dare say the recommendation comes from $$$ Mobil pay them to make the recommendation rather than the oil being superior to other top oils. I switched to HPR5 5W-40 which has the Mercedes 229.5 Approval. I can't fault it after using it for about a year now. I do 5,000km oil changes as I do lots of short trips and give the engine a fair bit of stick. The engine is silky smooth, makes no valvetrain noise and gets similar fuel economy to my previous oil. The bonus is it's half the price of Mobil 1 but the same quality. Love it.
Great value for money
In the past 20 years I used probably every possible oil you could buy in Australia.
I used Shell Helix for a long time and then switched to HPR5 in my 2010 sv6 commodore. I did 7500km oil changes and looooved HPR5. Not expensive, clean engine...smooth...
No negatives... HPR5 is great. Sold car with 80 000km on the clock and engine internals were as clean as on day one and the engine was silky smooth.
I now have 2016 commodore with LS3 and have to use enviro plus 5w-30 (because warranty). As soon as the warranty is out I will switch to HPR5. ...
No issues whatsoever - so far...
I have been running Penrite 5W40 'Fully Synthetic' for over 6 year now in a 2009 Toyota Camry V6 & 4 years in a 2012 Ford Focus). Whether doing 'school runs' or holiday 'road trips', both cars run exceptionally well using this oil (winter/summer cold starts, smoothness, etc.) . Oil pressure is immediate on startup & oil consumption is minimal between services. A great 'value for money' fully synthetic engine oil..
I think its ok im not complaining but i think i with go back to nulon 5w -30 as my fuel milage has dropped a bit from 8 ltrs per hundred to 9.4 ltrs per 100 but otherwise its ok i just dont like how its dropped in fuel miiage
Best oil I've ever used. Period!
BA XR8 Manual. Bought the car at 163000kms, it's now at 570000kms. Since I bought it I've always used HPR 10, changing oil at every 15000kms. The car travels from central Vic to Melbourne (Docklands) & back every day & is definitely NOT babied. This engine is still dead smooth & dead quiet, Still pulls strong to red line when asked to, blows no smoke & doesn't need any oil top up between changes - Each 15000kms uses roughly 5-600mls. Most reliable engine I've ever owned & I'm sure that's largely due to the Penrite HPR 10. Love this oil!

Questions & Answers
I have put hpr 15w-50 in my recently purchased 2009 Mitsubishi triton (3.2 ltr engine). It has been well looked after and has full service history (147000km). I will have my mechanic do the book services at 15000km but I intend to do an oil change myself at 7500km. I live in North Queensland so ambient temperatures are high in summer and this is why I chose to use this weight oil. The Penrite chart recommends 10w-40 for my vehicle but the ambient temp recommendations do overlap between these two oils, within temp ranges in my area. Im probably splitting hairs here but have I made a correct choice? Would it be advisable to use the 10w-40 in winter. Appreciate second opinion.
Sorry, Richard, I can't comment on that grade 15w-50 as mine is an older Perkins diesel & I use 20w-60 . I'm somewhat further south . Good Luck ! John .
