Outstanding

I changed to this oil recently from the synthetic Valvoline 5-40 I had previously had in the car. I have to admit that my car is quieter on Penrite.I couldn't believe the difference. I have always been sceptical about oil companies claims. This one has changed my mind. As for the longer term I will have to wait and see .

Good drop but

published

Changed over from the castrol edge 5-30 normally purchased as the price savings seemed a little too good to ignore. Oil stays clean and all the performance is still there but does run about 10c hotter in both my xt forester with 90k and hsv senator ls3? Is this somthing that I should worry about??

Lasts longer than most other oils

published

I have found this oil last longer before it breaks down. As i have an oil pressure gauge i can notice as soon as the oil starts to break down. Most other oils only last approx 5000kms this stuff will last 10000+kms. I also notice that my fuel consumption is effected once the oil breaks down in other brands. With the HPR5 it doesnt change through the life of the oil.
Good life span and fuel economy
Costs a little more, not too much though

Hi Matt, The Full Synthetic 5W-30 is fine for this vehicle. It can also use Enviro+ C2 0W-30 if needed. Both products meet the Ford specifications asked for this vehicle.

Hi Guys. Today I went to 3 stores looking for a 1 litre top up 5w-30 as the car manual recommends . Although I couldn't find anything was all sold out. The lady at Super Cheap suggested Penrite and said it was a great Oil if not better than Castrol Edge . So after driving around for so long I just grabbed it and went to the counter. Only to realise it was 5w-40. Will this Oil be ok for my car?. It does state on the bottle it can be used for 5w-30 but some extra validation would be great. It's a new car but used , and I'm a little nervous to against what the manual says.

Thanks

Hi Rick,

I can only guess what car you drive from the type of oil it recommends (I'd say a European car, maybe a Volkswagen or something of the like??). From then it's a question of where you live. If you live somewhere cold (say NSW or further south), I'd recommend sticking with the w30. If you live in a hot area like WA, NT or QLD, the w40 should be ok.

If the car is under warranty, use only what the book says.

If it makes any difference the car is a 2010 Hyundai i45 in very very good condition with only 23,000 km on it.
The engine is in immaculate condition still looks brand new.

Is your Territory a petrol or diesel and are you using HPR 5 Diesel oil or HPR 5 full synthetic?

Petrol - normal Hpr 5

no mate not burning any oil at all - just thought a heavy grade for the extra clearances it probably has at 370k ?
